So when starting my computer I'm greeted with no display and a qcode of 00 upon startup. The fans ramp up and go back to normal in a cycle and the qcode display dims in a cyclical fashion as well. I've removed everything from the motherboard one after the other trying to diagnose the issue and nothing seems to make the system post. I have also tried clearing cmos, taking the battery from the motherboard, and reseating both CPU and RAM. Nothing seems to be resolving my issue. Also, yes the motherboard has the latest bios version.
Any and all help is a appreciated. I really don't want to go through the rma process on the board and/or the CPU and this is a simple fix.
Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX X670E - E GAMING WIFI
CPU: Ryzen 9 7950X
RAM: G.Skill Trident Z 16GB x2
PSU: Seasonic Focus GX-1000
GPU: Powercolor Red Devil AMD 7900XTX
Exact issue here .... I applied a firmware update yesterday (1004) and after the final reboot, hit QCode 00 and I'm completely dead in the water now. Crosshair X670E Extreme w/ a 7950x ... have tried all the recommended steps I've seen elsewhere, but can't get past QCode 00 ...
Very upset at having to tear this build all the way down (custom dual-gpu water cooling loop ... major PITA).
Has anyone solved this or am I doomed to replacing the CPU and/or MoBo?
