B650E-F Orange QLED on restart since BIOS Update

Level 8

I'm having an issue on restart since updating my BIOS to vs.2413

Whenever I restart windows the PC power on  but wont post. The orange QLED comes on and stays on. The PC boots with no issue if I shut down and power back on.

I've tried clearing CMOS and EXPO is disabled and I just updated to  vs.2613 but the problem persists.

My specs are:

Mobo: Asus Rog Strix B660e-f

CPU: Ryzen 7 7700X

GPU: Asus ProArt 4070TI Super

Storage: 2 x WD_BLACK SN770 NVMe SSD

PSU: Fractal Design Ion+ Platinum 860

Memory: 2 x 16GB Corsair Vengence DDR5 5600MHz

Reflash back the bios that were posting fine. New bios might have changed the memory parameters.

How long are you leaving the system? Memory training can take 1-2 minutes depending on the memory configuration and UEFI settings.

Sometimes it's stuck untill I force shutdown by cpu button 

Right, but for how long?  As mentioned above, memory training can take some time initially. Please clear the CMOS following the instructions in the user manual and leave the system, for 3 to 5 minutes.

orange qled for 30-45 minutes still nothing happens...I also done clear CMOS  ...still the same issue occurred 


Remove CPU and cooler. Inspect the socket and CPU pin-pad for any debris or damage.

Remount CPU and cooler whilst ensuring for even mounting pressure as per cooling vendor guidelines.
