    Default Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Sockel 1155 Mainboard

    I just recently just purchase a Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen4 Socket 1155 motherboard and my board just keep restarting after 6 restarts it it boots and gives me a error 55. I don't know what to do with it ... I've tried unplugging everything and then re-plugging it in. I've tried using a cardboard box as a frame to see if it's grounding to the frame and it just keeps doing the same thing. I've also took the motherboard battery out and unplugged it to see if that would clear the bios but it just does the same thing again
    here are my spec's
    Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Sockel 1155 Mainboard

    Intel Core i5-3570K processor

    2x Western Digital 1TB

    1x Western Digitial 250GB
    Kingston HyperX PC3-12800 8GB RAM

    Zotac GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card

    No operating system since I can't seem to get it to boot up.

    Error 55 is: Memory not installed. I assume your memory is plugged into the board, if not you must have at least one memory DIMM installed. What slots did you use for your memory?

    Error 55 can also be an error with the CPU, since the memory controller is in the CPU.

    But, the problem could be using an Ivy Bridge CPU (i5-3570K) on a Sandy Bridge (Z68) board, you must have the right BIOS/UEFI. What version do you have, it should be shown on a label on the BIOS chip on the board. Check that before doing anything else. You need version 2.10 at least, plus all the driver updates listed on your board's download page.

    Hmm, not looking good. You need to have version 2.10 of the UEFI in order to use an Ivy Bridge CPU. Your post is not the first one about this issue, using IB CPUs on a SB board.

    For now, try using ONE DIMM in slot 1B only, or two in 1B and 2B. Putting your memory in 1A and 1B only will be running your memory in single channel mode, not dual channel.

    You might need to contact ASRock support, and request a new BIOS/CMOS chip with version 2.10 on it, to replace the chip you have now. Otherwise some people had to buy a cheap SB CPU, just so the board would POST, so they could flash the BIOS. If you know anyone that you could borrow a SB CPU from, that would help you fix the problem, assuming that the issue really is the IB CPU in a SB board without the IB UEFI/BIOS version.

    Go at another computer and go to the bios download page and download the lastest bios and follow the instructions on how to update the bios.
    Be warn that updating your bios will make your usb 3.0 ports to malfunction. I have this problem after i updated the bios.

    Yeah I already contacted the company they are sending me a new bios chip ... And I got a friend who has the same motherboard ... So if the new bios chip doesn't come soon, I'll just have him bring me his Processor .
