    Default New build problem

    Hi Guys would appreciate a little help here. New build with P67 fatal1ty P67 Professional motherboard.

    On power up Dr, Debug shows error 55 along with 4 short beeps.

    The ASRock P67 Fatal1ty Professional Memory Support List shows only three memory kits using 8GB modules that are supported. Your memory kit is not in ASRocks list, but Crucial's memory finder recommends the kit that you have.

    Can you borrow and try booting with one or two 4GB memory modules?
    It's possible but unlikely that both of your memory modules are defective.
    Can you borrow and test with another power supply?

    The problem might be due to a bios version issue.
    I think that the bios chip is located below the red memory slot, closest to the cpu.
    There should be a label on the top of the chip that will tell you the bios version of the chip.
    It might be an older bios version that doesn't support Ivy Bridge processors.
    Your system might boot with a Sandy Bridge cpu installed if you have an older bios version.

    Asrock still ships P67 and P68 boards with the original bios version from 2011. You need bios version P3.10 to support Ivy Bridge CPU's, including the 3330. I'm guessing that is the problem.

    ASRock > Fatal1ty P67 Professional

    If you look at the bios chip on the board, there will be a white sticker on it with the version number. If it's lower than 3.10, you will have to put in a Sandy Bridge CPU to update it, or contact Asrock for a new bios chip with the correct version.

    As Prof Jim said more or less, the beep codes and POST code error are No useable memory found. I would think any CPU error with an incompatible BIOS would show up as a separate error. The BIOS update is at least eventually needed, whether or not it would help now, ??? Can't update the BIOS if you can't POST though, and some people have needed to do what WilliamM2 mentioned, using a SB CPU to perform the update.

    Ivy Bridge CPU in a Sandy Bridge board is the toughest setup to start from scratch, given what I've seen in this forum. Checking your BIOS version is important, do it.

    Many thanks for all the replies.

    The Bios is P1.60-15B. Tomorrow, Monday I will install a Sandy Bridge CPU and also try a 4Gb memory module.
    Will report back on Tuesday.

    Again many thanks for the speedy response to my problem.

    I can't thank you guys enough, replacing the Ivy Bridge with the sandy Bridge solved the problem. I would actually like to use the i5 Ivy bridge would this be possible with a bios upgrade?

    Again many thanks

    WilliamM2 covered that in his earlier post. The only current BIOS for your board is for the purpose of enabling use of Ivy Bridge CPUs, check the BIOS download page for your board.
