My son and I are building a PC from scratch. The trouble is we can't get it to POST. So I got a POST card and it shows error codes 50 10. (See code explanations below.)
The 50 means the memory below 1 Mb has been tested and initialized. Adjusting the displayed memory size fot(?) relocation and shadowing text.
The 10 means Test DMA The keyboard controller command byte is written. Next, issue the pin 23 and 24 blocking and unblocking command.
The 10 keyboard related code makes sense because we do not see light on the keyboard at startup and cannot strike F2 to enter setup.
Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming
RAM: 2x4Gb DDR3
Video: Nvidia NVS 310
CPU: AMD FX 6300 6 Core
Power supply: 500 W
Storage: SATA 256Gb SSD
We have Ubuntu on a bootable USB 3.0
Our plan was to enter the BIOS, boot to the USB, install Ubuntu on the SSD and go from there.
Thanks for your help.
