Current Issue is My pc is Hung at Q-CODE AE. sometimes 34. RIght now i am using Bios 1, and one of my PCI-e leds are lit on my MB.

I have researched about 65% of this forum for Q-code AE and i am highly confused on which to start on.

What i have done so far.

I have Reseated all of my Ram Chips, and removed one of my Video cards I am currently trying to setup using my 42 led tv because i do not have my monitor yet and i am getting no feed from my video card to my TV. I have it set on the right Hdmi Port Verified this against my laptops I/O hdmi.

Any direction would help. Been reading my MB books and nothing Swapped my Cards.

34 means the board is sitting at BIOS and waiting for input from you which makes me wonder if you have some display issue. Connecting to TVs seems to throw lots of issues up.

Is your RAM one single 64GB kit? In any case I would remove all but one dimm for now for troubleshooting.

Use one GPU fact disconnect anything not vital to starting up...peripherals etc.

The PCIe lane light should be on if the switch is "on" and the lane populated.
