    Default P.O.S.T. failure with Asrock FM2A88M Extreme 4+ and AMD A10 kaveri CPU

    HI there,
    My first posting. I'm upgrading my desktop to include the above motherboard and AMD A7700 cpu.

    On first boot up I can't even get the POST to show.
    CPU fan and DVD drive works but that's it. Have removed all other devices from the mobo, except RAM (GSkill Ares2x4 GB 1600 hz) and SSD drive but nothing works.
    I suspect the BIOS (it is P 2.00 as received) and Asrock website says 1.50 works for this CPU. I thought a later version would be fine?
    How would I change BIOS if I can't boot into it in the first place?
    Or is it a faulty board?
    Glad for any help.

    Bob.

    Do you have any other memory to check with? You didn't say which G.Skill Ares kit you have so I cannot check compatibility. See the G.Skill Configurator link in #2 of my Sig.

    It's not the BIOS revision for your CPU. It clearly states 1.50, so your 2.00 is functional for that processor.

    Have you tried clearing the CMOS and retry?

    Did you by chance forget to connect the 8-pin power for the processor?

    Thanks for the ideas. Checked my RAM against your GSkill database link. It was supported. Clearing CMOS jumper did the trick and now booted into BIOS.
    Many Thanks, bob
