Debug Code 98 Problem, System Hangs on logo screen.

Not applicable
i recently ran into a prob, upon reboot or a turn on/off, the mobo will give the debug code 98 "console input devices connect" , so im assumin that means that my keboard/mouse arent being recognized? so what happens is, itll just sit at the ROG logo boot screen for a min or 2, then itll like reflash on the screen and fix itself... then itll go to windows. any idea on whats wrong/how to fix?

things ive tried: swapping usb ports for my usb mouse and keyboard and clearing cmos.
idk what else to do. my friend suggested unhookin my non OS hd's, so ill try that tonight when i get home from work.

it was workin fine over the weekend, then it just started happenin when i was swapping out my vid cards

ok i also notice the red led glowing bright for the boot_device_led, does this mean there could be something wrong with my SSD?

What UFI version are you running? Flash to the latest version, if not already using it.

Go down to a bare minimum of USB devices. Pull two DRAM modules and see if that affects how the board boots.

Also check your SSD firmware is up to date.
