I am having issues with my extreme6 X79 motherboard.
I don't get any kind of post beep or video.
I get an A2 error code from dr. debug and when I hit F2 as the customer service rep told me via email, I got an A6 error.
I have read on this forum before that its some kind of video problem but I would like a someone on here for hopefully confirm this.
I know this is not an problem with my cpu because I know its running ( I touched it, HOT)
I know its not RAM becuase I removed all but one stick and put in in all the slots, I got a different error if it was not in any of the A1,B1,C1,D1 slots.
If a take out my video card I get another error(d6 with 5 beeps) then it goes back to A2
I have taken all steps the customer rep via email told me to do via email. (except test psu which im fairly confident works properly.)
All im looking for is a conformation that this is in fact a video issue and not a motherboard issue.
My video card is an old GeForce FX 5500 (PCI) but again, my motherboard still detects it as a video card.
Is getting into the bios an issue? If you can set the defaults. Take out the Ram and make sure that its compatible with your motherboard. If getting into bios is an issue then clear cmos, take out the battery, change battery. If that is still an issue bios maybe corrupted. Borrow a compatible gpu and try that.
The x79 platform (2011 socket) does not have integrated/on-board video. You have to install a graphic card before you can get visual output, as there are video connectors on the motherboard.
This may sound stupid but, did you make sure to plug in any additional power connectors on the graphic card? Also, if your motherboard has one of those molex connectors near the PCI-E slots, I'd recommend connecting that as well.
Also, make sure your power supply has enough wattage for the card. If the graphic card isn't getting enough power to function, then it simply won't do anything (no output).
