    Default Extreme6 won't post. Error d6. 5 beeps.

    I have a problem with my ASRock extreme6 motherboard. Dr. Debug displayed error d6 (display console not detected), it beeps 5 times, and nothing shows up on the monitor. I tried using different lanes for my 480 GTX, and I also tried using a 8600 and a 250 GTS, and none of it worked. I also tried just 1 stick of RAM and swapping out PSU's.

    Help?

    I have seen similar posts (d6 error) on other forums. I think the motherboard needs to be returned.

    Dear Ranelar,

    About the debug code shows "D6", it maybe caused by your VGA card.
    System cannot recognize your VGA card, so the system cannot boot normally.

    Please kindly refer to below suggestions for testing.
    1. Reinstall your VGA card and check the power connector of the VGA card is connected correctly.
    2. Use eraser to clean the golden finger of VGA card to try.
    3. Please press "F9" to load BIOS default settings and adjust "Primary Graphics Adapter" to [PCI Express] to try.
    4. If possible, please kindly install your VGA card to another motherboard to try.

    If the problem still cannot be solved, please kindly contact your local dealer to check your system.
    Thanks~

    Have a nice day
    ASRock TSD

    Since your post is only 1 week old ,you probably have a b3 board.

    If you dont and will be returning a b2 board for recall,remove the cmos chip before return so u have a spare.(its a socketed bios chip,which is usefull).

    Other than that

    A.What are your full system specs,cpu and ram type anyway.

    B.There are usefull reset cmos buttons on the mbrd but if that doesnt work,follow the full reset cmos with jumper procedure from the manual.

    C.If that doesnt workstrip the pc down and test the board out of the case.
    ie connect everything up with the mboard sitting on the backing sponge that came with it wth perhaps a sheet of newspaper under that.
    reset cmos again if needed.

    The gx card will have sufficient support from the slot as long as you dont go pushing it sideways.+ this will eliminate any possibility of case structure preventing true contact in the pcie slot.
    Since you have tried nearly everything else the only other options are:
    a:both sticks of ram are faulty /wont work in the mbrd.
    b.cpu isnt inserted 100% correctly(cpu failure is rare).
    c.connections :testing out of the case should cover that.
    d.Motherboard is faulty.Before returning board make sure your ram type works with it.
    Current Systems:

    Did you fix this?

    I just finished building a new comp with an ASRock Z77 Extreme 4. Turning it on for the first time I get the 5 beeps/d6 error. I hadn't installed a graphics card yet, had the monitor plugged into mobo. Is that bad?

    Actually, given your CPU is an i5-2550K, it does not have on-board graphics:

    ARK | Intel® Core i5-2550K

    That explains the error you have. Get your video card in that PC, which should be enabled by default in the BIOS/UEFI.

    Your CPU is one of the few i5-2xxx CPUs that does not have a graphics core. It will run a bit cooler than an i5-2500K that has the graphics core, and may OC better or easier than the i5-2500K.

    You're right! I completely forgot, problem with buying parts and waiting a month to put it together. Thanks for the reminder!

    Might seem silly to ask, but did you plug the PCIe 6pin power from the PSU to the card?

    You wouldn't be the first one to have overlooked that.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the PSU Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be the PSU causing issues. I do(Lifetime PRO ver.) and will mention so if it is marginal for your build.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.
