Asus Error Codes

Hello Everyone,

I'm getting error code 42 with a green and white light while trying to boot up.
I don't see it listed in the book or online.

I've tried doing a flashback to different bios versions. Sometimes I get error D6.

Any help would be appreciated.

D6 controls video card

I receive Code 42 if I leave the Jump Drive that ASUS shipped with the Hero connected to the PC. Hopefully that's an easy one if you have that connected :).

My ASUS ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming Wi-Fi show after boot Code 81 and this is for HDD. I don't use SATA Driver, i have installed 4 M2 with PCIe. How can i remove the Code 81? I have also disabled the SATA Controller in the Bios.

I found that error code 42 is due to unstable memory.

This is correct. it's more frequently seen on XMP and D.O.C.P ram. Modules with the timings 40-40-40-77 ideally need changing to 40-40-40-80. There are other tweaks to make it even stabler, mind, but I've noticed that this helps a lot.

I think I got 42 as well. I connected my HDMI to the internal motherboard slot. Got display and updated everything, plugged it back in graphics card and it was gone.

I realize I'm not the only one with this problem.
