Issues with ASROCK x470 taichi

Nov 8, 2018
I am having issues with my Ryzen 2700x build.

I first bought an ASUS x470 gaming pro board and I assembled everything into the case and went to fire it up and post...lights but no post. So after changing out the GPU and trying both sticks of ram in every slot. I assumed the board was DOA so I returned it and bought a X470 taichi.

This time I tested the board before installing it into the case, I plugged in my GPU and ram and fired it up, I did not have a keyboard plugged in though, and it posted, I was excited and installed everything into the case, plugged the wireless keyboard receiver in and turned it on, it displayed the ASROCK page that had the options for F2 for bios etc but it never went past this screen. I turned the computer off and tried again, the same thing, just forever stuck on the asrock banner. I turned it off and unplugged the receiver and turned the computer back on, it posted, so I plugged the keyboard in and was able to navigate around the bios. I plugged in my SSD and usb loaded with win 10 and restarted the computer. Once again, it was stuck at the asrock this point I figured maybe try and update the bios.

However, every time I had anything plugged into a USB port it wouldn't go past the asrock page. I unplugged everything from the computer except GPU, RAM, and CPU and the computer stopped posting. I tried switching the ram sticks around and trying 1 stick at a time and it wouldn't post. I just kept getting error code 0d over and over.

I tried clearing the cmos, removing the battery, and nothing just keep getting the 0d error.

I tried another GPU as well, still nothing. I ordered a different stick of RAM that will be delivered today so I can rule out ram error.

I have the same board and ram (different power supply, cpu, and gpu) and its great..

that error code is a problem related to Memory, GPU, or another device..

SO sounds like its a good chance that ram is bad.. OR (I have had it before with an OLD computer) I had a USB drive plugged into the computer and if it was it would NOT boot.. the external drive was BAD.. replaced that as I needed an external drive and it would boot normally instead of getting stuck..

for the ram I have that same stuff and board, just make sure you are in the correct slots as well. the closest to the CPU should not have one in it. then a stick.. then none.. then the last slot should have one. (farthest from the cpu).

it also could be a moody power supply if its not delivering correct voltages. I have an Corsair HX650 that was unstable.. changed to a evga G3 supernova and have been rock stable since the change. (the corsair HX650 was just unstable though its still under warranty)
