Asus Maximus Hero VII Q Code 00

I have a Asus Maximus Hero VII with an i7 4790k , 16 GB ram Corsair Vengeance and EVGA 2060.
When I power on the pc the mobo got stuck in error code 00 and black screen. To properly boot I need to clear the CMOS constantly. If I not clear the CMOS the won't boot. When the pc boot works fine I can play and work without any issue

I test outside the case and the first time take a lot of time, but the mobo boot normally. I turn off and turn on a couple of time and everything works normally.

I reassembled the pc and the q code 00 is back and I need to clear the CMOS everytime I want to use the pc.

I reflash the bios to the latest stable version 3201 and the issue persist.

I bought a new PSU and the mobo is not able to boot without clearing the CMOS.

I try connecting the video to the integrated hdmi port and the same result.

I try using a DVI cable and the same result ( No boot and Q Code 00)

I replace the motherboard battery and same problem.

Any advice ?

Hi joseleg 🙂

Qcode 00 is not documented and generally considered to be a hardware fault found error, and difficult to diagnose the hardware culprit, however:

Your experience as quoted above may provide a clue. It is possible there is a short between the MB case standoffs and your Motherboard and many have experienced this condition.
It is not conclusive however worth a try if all else fails. Also check your case cabling and connections.

You can obtain fiber washers to insulate the condition with standoffs shorting.
