Maximus Debug LED Codes

Retired
Not applicable
hey guys n gals, I was wondering is there a thread in these forums or a link to somewhere else that has a huge list of all the Debug codes for the Maximus Extreme motherboard?

I havent got a problem with mine but im just interested in keeping a copy incase something bad happens 😛

Main reason is when im booting the system up the numbers change around and everything, and im just curious as to what kinda stuff its checking 😛

thats a bunch peeps!!

I'm not sure but that would be nice to have!
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…

They are in the GENE-Z manual, not sure if they match other boards. Other boards might have the codes in their manuals.

They were not much help for me though, when I connected HDMI to onboard on first boot I still had to guess it was defaulting to discrete. 😉

I had a look at the manual as Spathi suggested and didn't find anything there within the few english pages there was..

But after some more looking around i ended up finding a page that listed all the codes.. Apparently they say that these codes are all valid for every motherboard that has a P67 chipset that run a LGA1155 socket with an AMI Bios.. So im not sure if these are the same for other different motherboards.

Anyways heres my findings:

hehe - now we have the manual on the forum too.

Thanks guys for posting this up.
To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

What means the 30 - Reserved for ASL (see ASL Status Codes section below), I've looked up in the manual and I didn't find an explanation for it.
Thank you.

It seems as if there is no clear explanation of the LED code 30 (other than the manual). I've noticed that if I set the mobo (in the boot setup (F2)) to Optimized default settings, it loads up as A0 (which from what I can assume is the normal status). When I click on the 4-way optimization for the comp it loads back up (after reset) as code 30. Not clear on what it means, since anything in the 30's range is for the memory, I can only assume that either the comp defaulted to the 4-way (because we all know technology has a mind of its own), or you clicked it (maybe by accident).

For myself, it was a mixture of clicking "Gaming" profile on my ASUS ROG 760 P GPU, and clicking the 4-way optimization in AI Suite III.

My Maximus XI Formula (Z390) board cycles between codes 30 and 31... lol...how do I stop this!?
