    Default ASROCK Z68 Extreme 7 Gen3 Dr. Debug code 59

    What does code 59 mean?
    "Cpu microcode is not found or micro code update is failed"

    That is the error I am getting on my board and I am unsure if this means I have a bad board or something else is wrong, any help would be appreciated...

    To give you a little background my original board was purchased in DEC, went bad and RMA, this is the RMA replacement but I can't get it to post so any help understanding the issue would be appreciated, thx!

    Where you able to do a fresh install of Win7 Pro to your SSD with this replacement board or is this just moving the previous install SSD to the board?

    Have you tried clearing the CMOS not only by hitting the CMOS reset button but also by moving the jumper pin with the PSU off?

    If it's the latter and you are getting this code 59 and the board never posts then I would carefully remove the CPU and check with a magnifying glass to see if maybe there are bent pins. Even the best of us despite taking all precautions and being extremely careful when inserting (dropping ever so slightly) the CPU into the socket or removing it, can inadvertently cause a few bent pins. If after careful inspection it appears that maybe there are a few bent pins you can try straightening then with a very small tipped needle and make sure that you are grounded properly and that the CPU is held securely so as not to fall, grounded and you are working on it with a high power magnifying glass so that more pins do not get bent while you are trying to straighten any pins. If this is something you do not feel comfortable doing perhaps a local PC shop might examine the CPU and "fix"

    Please keep us in the loop

    I tried resetting the CMOS with jumper and taking the battery out. I checked for bent pins but did not see any.

    It's not posting so I don't think it's the hard drive but I have a spare I can try.

    Dear josephraptor,

    Please kindly refer to below suggestions for testing.
    1. Only install the necessary device of system to try. ( CPU and a stick memory that is installed to DDDR3_A1 slot)
    2. Install a stick memory to other DRAM slot to try.
    3. If possible, please kindly test the CPU to another system to check whether the CPU is fine.
    4. If possible, please kindly change another CPU to try.

    Thanks!

    Have a nice day
    ASRock TSD

    I have tried different RAM, and using one stick.
    I do not have a spare Motherboard and/or chip so I can't interchange those two parts and test them. I am getting code 59 on Dr. Debug, does that mean my motherboard is bad or my chip? Or is it telling me nothing at all? Is there another way to test my chip or motherboard to figure out which is bad, other then swapping parts because I do not have a spare chip or motherboard, thx for the help!

    Sounds like you tried the most logical choices and without having an inventory of parts hanging around that most folks do not have...I think you know what to do. The CPU,memory,drives etc etc worked before the only new "card" is the replacement board and maybe you drew a bad card from the deck...
