    Default Extrem3 Gen3 fails to Post

    I'm having a problem with a new computer I just built. It won't clear the POST! The motherboard is a ASRock Extreme3 Gen3, and the Dr. Debug is coming up with a error code of B2. I can't even get into the BIOS, its just coming up with a blank screen. There is no after market video card, I'm just using the integrated video card that is with the mobo. If you have any solutions I would greatly appreciate it.

    Specs:

    Intel i5 2500K
    Cooler Master 212 Evo
    DDR3 Corsiar Vengence 2x4GB
    seasonic s12II 520 bronze

    It dosen't get to the bios page, and I've already tried it with just one stick of ram and still get nothing. I looked up the error code in the manual and it says Legacy Option Rom Initialization.....any ideas?

    I have the hdd into the sata2 at first, I unplugged it and put it into the sata3 port and turned it on and still didn't get anything. I even tried it without the hdd being hooked up and still keep getting the B2 error code....

    It should reach bios with no hdd attached,it only leaves CPU/mb and psu,do you have spare psu to test with?

    Oh and you can try clearing cmos by removing mb battery for 30mins then trying

    I don't have a spare PSU to use at the moment, I've already reset the cmos and booting and had no luck with that! Are you certain its either the CPU/mobo or psu, or is it something little that I'm missing/overlooking?

    I'm not sure,I don't know what that error is for either,if it was psu I don't think it would show an error code like that,still could be memory incompatibility issue too,did you test with one stick and test each ram slot one by one?
