Random "No Signal" Issue past 3 months on Asus Rampage IV Black Edition x79 Mobo.

Help! god this is frustrating im keeping up with this past 3months for gods sake!


Yo , Guys Im facing major issue with the Asus Rampage IV BLACK EDITION x79 board (Also im not the only one here Facing this problem there are more who face the Exact problem im writing, Please Help us)

, Recently After Creators Update in Win 10 pro and Nvidia's New Drivers I face a Random Issue Where My PC Would Crash out of nowhere.

The symptom is Monitor would Show a random "No Signal" while im gaming,Browsing,Rendering or Anything. All lights are on PC shows No Q-Code Error Except 3 times it did show Q-Code Error 40 but it does not show that anymore.

Also Heads Up i checked the Event Log "nvlddmkm stopped responding " is in the Windows log......so i cant say which is making the nvidia driver act so abnormally.

its been 3months and still going with this problem till today.

This is happening Like when im gaming,Drawing,3d modeling,rendering or anything and bam my Monitor/Monitors would get disconnected, this is no issue of psu,gpu im suspecting its cause of Asus Bios being still old in Beta for win 10 or cause of WIndows 10 doing something wrong or Nvidia doing something wrong.

Im in a wreck right now anyone face this issue? cause its random as hell tho i might not crash for a few days but then crash several times in a day. Anyone know about this?


My problem is very similar to this guy here on this thread: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...ck-Edition-X79

I ran many test all hardware is ok even downlclocked still issue remains.

I done following things:


#1.Check PSU - i have 3 PSU all are not defective yet results are same so -PSU no PROBLEM!
#2.Checked RAMs - Meme Test 86 + Ran for 8hrs,Windows ram diognistics also ran - RAM no PROBLEM!
#3.Check for CPU Bent Pins - NOPE! not at all!
#4.Hard Drive - Nope works fine on other pc i spent 3 day Formatting/installing and went through hell.
#5.Check if there is Driver Conflict
*Disabled- Corsair LInk,AntiVIrus,Msi AfterBurner,Intel Virtualization - Nothing conflicts results remain same!
#6.Ran Virus Scans with several antivirus and Anti-malware Tools and did formats none showed a single spec of malware or virus.

#7.Checked GPU- I have GT730 & 240GT old nvidia Cards, That had the same issue too. (Literally no nvidia card gets mercy in this problem)


Weirdly AMD card is not doin this, i dont own one but i borrowed from a friend it didnt crash the 1 whole day.

I am a guy who tries to keep PC Alive so i dont overclock at all, I am pretty 100% sure my every piece of hardware is ok since they stay very low on temp about 40 to 50 max plus not a single component in my PC have crossed 50C+ except the GPU tho 😛 cause i am one of those careful guys.

Also why is there no proper Driver for WIndows 10 for x79 Rampage Baords? @asus?

Update 25th September 2017 - Temporary Solution Found....Works for The Rampage IV Black Edition Board.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


#1.Disable your Compatibility Support Module (CSM) in the Boot Option before u start the System.

#2. So far Disabling CSM has made my System far stable than before...i dont crash anymore, there are 2 program which makes my system
crash even if CSM is disabled that is the Firefox and Bluestacks otherwise disabling CSM has made Nvidia Driver work very Stable for Windows 10.

Don't use firefox while you are gaming u will 100% crash even if CSM is disabled, I suspect the Bug is windows 10 & Nvidia not firefox or Bluestacks.

Additional Steps That must be followed With CSM disabled:

My No signal Issue is not completely gone, it still happens to me the only thing i have manged is to delay to crash, By my method u can run the PC max 7hrs to 12Hrs but some program in windows 10 always trigger the Nvidia Driver to crash, i only have managed to make nvidia driver stable by my random trail and error.


You may have already done the steps i am writing, but please bare with me so we can find the solution together.


#1.use DDU (i know u probably used Display Driver Uninstaller but i just wanna make sure u are doing same thing as me)
#2.Disable Windows 10 Auto Installing Drivers.
#3.Uninstall Flash Player & Quick Time play if you have them, they make nvidia driver act abnormally.
#4.DIsable CSM! YES CHECK THIS AGAIN!
#5.Wipe Secure Boot Keys ...the reason im saying to wipe secure boot keys is cause some people in nvidia forum said they solved some crash doing this.
#6.Use Ccleaner to Wipe every garbage registry. Then restart PC. (DONT CONNECT INTERNET, dont let windows 10 find updates even tho we disabled auto installation of drivers for windows 10 its risky to have internet connected now)
#7.Install latest Nvidia driver. Dont install 3D vision garbage.
#8.Download a Program called TDR Manipulator , this program is very helpful for debugging the nvidia driver.
set TDR delay to 2 or 8 try, restart PC.

#9. Test ur PC after the Restart and tell me if its working or not.

#10.Report me back what has happened to you system....im here.

#11. Please use this Stable Bios, This Bios was made by User @Holystarlight, thanks to him: www.mediafire.com/download/lv5qgp73pwmn7y7/R4BE.rar

#12.Update: Try This TDR Values:

I am running My System Quite Stable Past 19hrs, I think i made progress with the Stability With the Nvidia Driver, Use The TDR Manupulator and Set the Values (Do note i own a Nvidia TItan X so be aware some values may differ if ur card is way too Old from Fermi Generation it may not work im not sure but u can trail it and set the values default if things go bad.....(well i own 3 gpu Nvidia TItan X,240GT & GT730 so far i didnt test the gt240 but gt730 and Titan X works with the value)....

67826


#13. The main cause of all this mishap is Nvidia driver.....wat i now believe is this is the Nvidia Drivers with Some Voltage Issue, Im playing with the Voltages...Downcloking didnt help, I will increase voltage and test out more.


LAST NOTE: Issue is there system would crash unless a Developer notice this there is No fix! WHat i tired will Only delay the crash for few hours, but can promise the Complete Stability for 20+hrs.

Has anyone been able to fix this yet in 2019 as I have the same problem as OP I had a GTX Titan 6GB (black) go faulty on me after 6-7 years so I bought a new NVidia RTX 2070 and now I have my monitor going into power save mode because of no signal from video card every now and then (a day or so), my Titan and system had no issues till I put the 2070 in. I have never over clocked my system the only change prior to installing the 2070 was I removed 32GB ram from a 64GB ram kit and updated one of the Bios's so I still have the old Bios which I will go back to and try an old video card but all up is there a fix to this yet I am using the latest driver for the 2070 and 4 weeks ago there was a previous version before the one im using now so the new one does not work too. The only way to return to normal operation is to turn the PC off and reboot and if I had music playing at the time it keeps playing but I use VLC with repeat on but the track does not repeat and on my last crash I had a Q code of "50" but in the manual there is no Q code for this, I have a Corsair H100i CPU water cooler and the static red light I have set goes to the default 3 colour change so somewhere in all this my iCUE software stops working.

im reviving the Thread after 2years on a 5year old Premium motherboard again lol.

Ok, I faced this issue about 2years ago and fixed it by my method, but this Month it came back, Because WIndows 10 Updated on August 2019 again messing up all my setting I previously set for stability:

To counter the Problem I advice again few new ways:

(Software Part)
#1.Disable Driver Update on WIndows 10 from WIndows 10 Pro's Group policy. (Pesky bunch buggy drivers from auto update are often culprit)
#2.Dont update Intel IME to the Latest: (Intel Management Engine ) - the latest one is bugged for x79 boards!
#3.Apparently Nvidia Mid March 2019 Driver is most stable build. ( I am saying this from my expreince)
#4.Disble or Uninstall AsusComService on Windows 10, The service was not meant for Windows 10 with X79, its bugged.

(Hardware/Overclock Part)
*C-state disable
*Intel Virtualization Disable
*Disable all extra stuff Asus Features u don't use (reduces bugs & Windows 10 crash)
*Test ur Ram setting with 1333mhz-with volt 1.25/1.65 & Various which u can find stable.
Go from lower to higher, Play a game like Overwatch at 300fps to test.


Also After u try these methods of Mine Try the TDR manipulator.

Also if you are stuck in infinite Windows 10 Reboot after Login -> weirdly If u go in Safe Mode, Unisntall Nvidia driver u can bootup and do ur backup, this R4BE board really got bad issue with the nvidia runnin windows 10. Its jarring how I had to spend over 3months to fix a bug by trial.

I bought this Asus RAMPAGE IV BLACK EDITION board in 2014, still its alive working in year 2019 , from my perspective it outlived what I paid for but the Bugs that I had to endure on this premium board now question me if I would spend $1000+ again on a Asus board on future? My built was nearly $5000...so frustration is real.
@Asus man fix ur premium board bios & drivers (now its old but for future board try to keep them updated)

This issue has been plaguing me for a long time now, ever since I upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 10. It seems that over time, the issue got worse until it was occurring shortly after startup for me with the latest Windows update (Windows 10 20H2).

I spent a long time trying to figure this out, from updating the BIOS to the latest modded one, updating and downgrading various drivers (GPU, Chipset, etc.), messing with various BIOS settings (multiplier, messing with Turbo and all that) - nothing helped me with this issue.

In the end, I ended up removing all the PCI-E cards I had and what really helped was moving the GPU (NVidia 2080 Super) to the top 8x slot (PCIE_X8_2). Using any 16x slots brings the issue back and leaving the GPU in the 8x slot makes everything run very stable. Still not sure what the actual cause of the issue is, but at least I have things running very stable now.

- The BIOS is the modded one, running at factory settings (with memory adjusted manually).
- I do have the ASUS Com Service Disabled
- I do not have Intel MEI installed
- I only have the GPU drivers installed (not the USB-C driver). Windows installed its own drivers for the NVidia audio driver.

Do note that none of the settings above helped before I moved the card to the top 8x slot. Its possible its the combination of all of this, but if you are having this issue, I would recommend to try removing all PCI-E device and moving the GPU to the top 8X slot and debug from there.

If you are worried about performance, there is just enough bandwidth in PCIE-3.0 8x to get full FPS from a 2080 TI, so its not a huge concern in most cases.


My next steps would be to install other PCI-E devices and see if things remain stable.
