DP67BG no boot - POST code 1E

CPU: Core i5-3570

Video: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 2GB

RAM: Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600

PSU: Raidmax RX-530SS

When I hit the power button, the board lights up, the fans all spin, the LCD on the board shows code 1E (or perhaps IE). Monitor shows No Signal. There are no beeps from the on-board speaker. After about 10 seconds, the system spontaneously restarts. And it keeps going in a continuous loop.

I have tried a different monitor and different video card. No change.

I have tried with various other components unplugged. No change.

I tried moving jumper J1 to pins 2-3 to boot in BIOS config mode. This made a small change; the LCD on the board shows code 31 (which it's supposed to in BIOS config mode), and the system no longer spontaneously restarts. But there is still no signal to the monitor, and there are no beeps from the on-board speaker.

I'm now looking at the possibility of a bad CPU, or an incompatible CPU. Of course, I don;t have any spares lying around to swap out.

I'm at my wit's end! Someone please give me a clue here, before I go completely bonkers.

Hi,

Sorry, no fix: I've got the same problem - did you find an answer?

According to the Intel list your processor (SR0P0 ) is compatible, as is mine (http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?BoardName=DP67BG Intel® Processors and Boards Compatibility Tool - Search Results Page)

My PSU is an Antec 650w, so it shouldn't be inadequate power (probably?) - often cited as a case. Two bad PSUs (mine & yours) would be quite a bit of a coincidence.

I wondered if the age of my graphics card was anything to do with it (Geforce 6600 pci x16)but it shouldn't be & if you've swapped yours out, that would appear to exonerate this.

Cheers

Jonathan

Hello Jonathan,

the issue that you are experiencing could be related to the fact that you require an updated BIOS version to use your processor.

Please check for more information at the following web site:

Regards.

Thanks Victor - I had arrived at this being a possibility because I have bought two of these boards - one of which has just turned up so I installed the CPU etc onto it & it Boots with the 3rd gen i5.

I drilled through the detail of the board/processor support where the spec states a minimum BIOS of 2161 for my SR0P0 so I downloaded BG2209P.BIO

However, I can't seem to update the bios. I've got the .BIO file on a usb stick & followed the procedures from Intel's BIOS update guide, but nothing happens. I would have thought the LED on the USB stick would blink as it is being accessed? But I get nothing. And I have left it for hours. I've got no display so can't follow the other routes.

I'm at a loss now as to where I go next. I'll try putting the .BIO on a DVD & hooking up an optical drive in case the board likes that more. Otherwise I'm stuffed. The board was New-Old-Stock from a private seller, so if it is DOA I can't imagine Intel being interested.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've suffered a lot of downtime over this.

Cheers

Ha! Just found an article about support for 3rd generation processors (http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-033076.htm Desktop Boards — Updating the BIOS to support 3rd Generation Intel� Core� Processors) which turned out to be the same page as Victor linked to. Went through it AGAIN, only more closely.... I had taken a wrong branch about halfway down). Seems I need to "with a current generation processor installed....update the BIOS" Yeah great - I've probably got one down the back of my sofa. This is a new build, so I've got to buy an older CPU to get it going? Hopefully a basic one like a Celeron will do. Appears to be supported by the board.

As luck would have it, I bought a second identical but used board for my son's PC upgrade. This had been used and has had the BIOS udated as it was OK with my 3rd gen i5. I swapped boards and all OK. He could only run to a 2nd gen i5 so all is well with my build.

I hope this will help anyone with this problem.The main cause for the problem is board DP67BG does not support

processor with Lithography 22nm. Solution is to install a cpu with 32nm then update bios to BG2161P.BIO download at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20931&keyword=bios+2161&DownloadType... https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20931&keyword=bios+2161&DownloadType... to usb drive. Follow instruction on this link http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20931/eng/BIOS%20Update%20Readme.pdf http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20931/eng/BIOS%20Update%20Readme.pdf . Your board will then support 3rd generation CPU.Good luck.

My experience with DP67BG no boot-code 1E started with installation of Core i3-3220 code 1E then came up With all sort of selective hardware eliminations until I found out on intel site that DP67BG is not compatible with 22nm spec. unless the BIOS is updated.

I then bought and install Pentium G640 32nm spec code disappeared to 00 everything run perfect. BIOS was then updated to 2161 which is the latest BIOS .CPU i3-3220 was then swap with Pentium G640.All problems disappear and the system run fast and smooth.

  1. Specs.

Video: PNY GeForce GT 610 1GB.

PSU: CORSAIR CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS

RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600

CPU: Core i3-3220 3rd Gen. Manufacturing tech 22nm

BIOS UPDATE CPU: Pentium G640 Manufacturing tech 32nm

I just did just the same, only with a - even cheaper - Celeron G470, and then swapped in my I7 3770, and it runs like a breeze.
