Updating asrock bios without floppy
To complicate things, I don't have any other memory or processors to try, and I can't update the BIOS because I can't get it to post. I would love a way to flash the BIOS without needing the installer...maybe a jumper I could set, and restart holding some button down with the firmware on a flash drive. PS(I know the ram is not on the list of compatible memory, but somehow I doubt Toms Hardware would recommend buying that ram for this build if they couldn't get their motherboard to recognize it) Thanks in advance!! Contact ASRock tech support and see if they would be nice enough to send you an updated BIOS.Seasonic X650 80 gold psu (650w) ~~ Xigmatek Balder HDT 1283 cpu cooler ~~ Cooler Master CM 690 case (RC-690-KKN1-GP) Samsung 830 128GB SSD MZ-7PC128B/WW (boot) ~~ WD Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB (data) ~~ ZM-MFC2 fan controller HT|Omega Striker 7.1 sound card ~~ Asus VH242H monitor [1920x1080] ~~ Logitech Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speakers win7 x64 sp1 Home Premium ~~ Cyber Power CP1500PFCLCD U. S I had exactly the same problem; Also with an Ivy Bridge chip. I contacted ASRock and they were quick to respond and let me know that they would send an updated BIOS to me. I actually have a second updated BIOS chip because I emailed ASRock and told them that it hadn't arrived yet, so they sent it again... So if you want one, I let me know and I can send it you you.

Can the video outport ports on a board even work without a correctly supported CPU with graphics on chip capability? On the debug readout reads 00 which indicates a CPU problem which makes sense because this board only supports this cpu with a bios upgrade.
You wont be able to flash your BIOS without a CPU, so if it won't pickup the CPU. If that doesn't work, than the memory error must be unrelated... Thanks again, Travis It's the bios, not your memory.The strange thing is, I get error code 55, no memory...but I have tried my 3 memory sticks (I ordered a 12 gig set, not fully understanding the dual channel thing, but figured it would be fine) in all the slots, in every configuration, but to no avail. I'm thinking it's this processor thing that is keeping it from booting.Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.
