Maximus IV Gene-Z Debug 34

Level 7

As the title suggests, my gene-z mobo is giving me the debug code of 34. I was getting this before so i RMA my gpu but it still gives me a debug 34.

I have tried the usual fixes: re-seating ram, gpu, and I have tried both the modular 12V cables and the one inbuilt into the PSU.

The system works fine, allowing me to enter windows etc. when I use the on-board graphics as well as my old gpu (ati 5450)

Can anyone help me out here because I have done an RMA on my gpu (different serial no.) and am still getting the same problem

ALSO this was Raja@ASUS suggestion :
- Remove power from the Board.
- Remove CPU from the socket.
- Clear CMOS (Important to do this with CPU removed from socket)
- Insert only ONE DRAM module into the LAST Slot
- Insert CPU & Cooler
- Power up and see if the Board will at least POST
