For some odd reason , my rig does not want to boot. Durring post it freeze after verifying my harddrive. And code 0078 is displayed in the bottom right corner of my screen. I cant enter setup or do anything it just hangs there.

did a search on the net for this issue and the reports are conflicting.

someone said it was a problem with the sata hdd, said you needed to unplug it and change some setting in bios. Tried that; even with my hard drive and any other sata divice disconnected, it still hangs.

another said it was the ram. Tested each ram module, still nothing.

final result i found was to clear cmos. Did that the official way for my mobo, still nothing.

im stumped on this issue and any help would be appriciated.

System specs:
Motherboard: asrock x58 supercomputer. (Bios ver. P2.60)
Graphics: Gigabyte geforce gtx 650 2gb OC edition. (Have 3 of these in my rig)
Processor; intel I7 930 @ 2.80Ghz
Memory: 16gb kingston, ( 4 modules of 4gb each, 1333)
HDD: samsung 2tb

Just Google 0078 it is an Asrock problem, looks like you have some reading ahead of you.

Did you bother to read about the electrostatic charge issue?

Seems to be unclear, conflicting opinions about what is going on.  The 0078 seems to be a status code indicating the a problem with hardware recognition, IMO. 

 

If it happened to me...I would remove/reseat the RAM modules...and replace the CMOS battery.

Following your suggestion, i've replaced the CMOS battery and tested each rom module induvidually. Still no joy.

Someone suggested to me that the PSU might be faulty and causing the problem. Will try swapping out the PSU later.
BTW: replacing the CMOS battery caused the codes to no longer show in the buttom right hand corner of the screen.

As I understand it...the status code just indicated a problem with the boot process, which would be understandable if there is a hardware problem.  Unfortunately, nothing seems to indicate the direction in which to pursue.

 

But a PSU switch is a good step, IMO.

Yeah. Well louis, I swapped out the psu and still no joy.

I'm starting to suspect the Motherboard to be faulty. Sadly it seems that the X58 Supercomputer motherboards are no longer on the market/in circulation. And socket 1366 seems to have gone out of style, so I guess I'll have to go hunting for a upgrade kit/mobo & CPU combo.

And all that after having spent 350 bones on 3 video cards the week before. FML.

I suggest starting a new topic, summarizing this one and linking to it, in the Internal Hardware forum...before drawing final conclusions.

:thumbup2: , I understand :).

 

I have spare CPUs, spare PSUs, spare RAM, spare MB, etc.  I hate being inconvenienced when I suspect component failure and a simple swap of parts helps get to the root of the problem :).  I guess that's why I have 3 systems even though I live alone and am the only user of same :).

 

Keep us posted.

Ok. Replaced the mobo and the cpu. My old cpu was socket 1366 which isnt being made anymore/is no longer on the market.

my pc now works like a charm again. And i hear what you say louis. I live alone and my setup has 6 screens. 3x 18 inchand 3x 32 inch screens. All used for gaming. 6 clients of perpetuum-online.

anywas, thanks for the help and have a good one.
