I have done two bios updates since I built the system. 1st update was threw the bios, 2nd update was threw asus AI suite.
No problems encountered, been running for months...
I decided on new cpu (phenom II x4 960t)...installed new cpu...rebooted with one ram stick...no post along with a red light on the boot device led...cleared cmos...rebooted ...similar issue...fired rog connect using a laptop, rog connect detects cpu, ram, and load vga bios fine but takes long on initial ROM and ultimately hangs on "CMOS ERROR" ...system continues running...no display...tired jumper battery method to clear cmos...still the same error along the red light boot device led. tried booting with only cpu, ram and anything else disassembled...still the same!!!
Swapped back to phenom 720...no post...followed the same steps as mentioned above...no luck...same issue.
I am frustrated... i doubt it is a cpu issue as system was working before with the 720. I tried switching bios using tweakit bios flashback...both bios give same error...I tried updating bios to 0903 or 9913 threw tweakit...it says "incorrect bios file"
I am not aware of other ways to solve this issue!!!
