Guys, thanks for sharing this behavior with us, I will try to find a solution for it.


I would recommend you both, to please remove all devices and keep the motherboard with minimum configuration such as board, processor, and power supply.

  • Since there is not memory, the system should give you 3 beeps.
  • Once you performed that step, please include 1 memory stick on DIMM# 1 and restart the system. Try to access the BIOS.
  • Check which BIOS version do you have installed? Please provide me this information.
  • Start including the rest of the devices, one by one. This is necessary in order to find out which is the one causing this behavior.


Let me know the results.



before doing this i had updated to the newest update BIOS with same results.

then i followed your steps just to discover that my Issue was having the mSATA hard drive in the motherboard slot i used 2 different ones with the same results.

Bought this boards specifically for the use of mSATA and now im using it with an adapter, defeats the whole purpose, but at least is working.

so I found a Solution for my Issue, YES. but the purpose of the board is Useless I suppose.

I hope there is a fix for this. =S

thank you Sylvia.


I'm so sorry to hear about this, Tichano.

I would recommend you to contact our Warranty department so they can help you replacing the board,
