    Default ASRock X79 Extreme 6 No Display, Debug code A2

    I'm a first time builder. I've gotten everything in the machine that I have and I can power it on, everything seems to be on and running okay but the Dr. Debug display on the MOBO stops at A2 "IDE Detect", of course I have SATA drives. Also I am not getting a display, my monitor is my tv and I was using the HDMI connection from the GPU, when I turn the machine on the "No signal detected" on my TV goes away so it knows there is a signal but nothing ever comes up, no POST, no splash, no beep. I thought there might be an issue with HDMI on first boot so I got a DVI to HDMI adapter and tried that but same result. I've read more ideas than I can even recall on how to get past the A2 error at least but nothing has worked. I've checked for bent CPU pins, reseated the GPU (if i start without the GPU I get 5 beeps), reseated the RAM (2 8GB GSKILL X Series in slots A1 and B1), tried different SATA ports for my drives, tried only using the SSD, tried only using the WD Caviar Black, tried without optical drive in, no matter what it always stops at A2. Maybe it's a RAM issue? Haven't tried putting them in A2 and B2 slots, which I've read might work even thought the manual specifically says not to do that :\
    Any help would be great, I've spent so much time trying to figure this out.

    Hello and Welcome.

    Any chance you haven't yet connected the PSU to the mb's 8-pin ATX12V1 connecter at the "top' of the MB?

    The Lazer LZ-1000 has two "8-Pin EPS 12V" connectors, one needs attached to the MB at the mb's ATX12V1 mentioned above. That, along with the requisite 24-pin std mb connector at the mb's ATXPWR1.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Yeah I connected the 8 pin at the top, the Lazer has two, one labeled CPU1 that is actually two separate 4 pin connectors that line up together and one labeled CPU2 that is a single 8 pin. Also plugged in the 24 pin on the mb power spot. I have the CPU1 plugged into the ATX12V1 pins, do you think I should try the CPU2, since that doesn't have anywhere to go anyway?

    Thanks to no one for any help! Got it solved anyway. Apparently it didn't matter what output I used from my GPU because no matter what my TV was not going to display until Windows loaded. Got a crappy monitor from Best Buy and hooked it up and the BIOS displayed perfectly, loaded the OS and GPU driver and now it works on my TV like a charm. Now to return the monitor to Best Buy.
