Default Can't enter bios asus P9X79

Hello!

Built my first computer last Friday, and everything has worked fine until today. When starting the computer, it all seems to work fine, except after the regular one beep signal it just brings me to a black screen with a flashing underscore, and I couldnt seem to get past it. The mb display says 62.

I got my w7 installation disc, and restarted the computer. On the asus screen I pressed delete to boot from the DVD. Nothing happens, except it doesn't beep and just brings me to a black screen. The mb display says E0. I've tried pressing f8, F, delete on the numpad without success.

I suspect the flashing white has got to do with Windows seven, but its weird how I can't seem to bot from the DVD. Thanks in advance.

Mb: Asus P9X79 Deluxe
CPU: Intel i7 3960-X Extreme edition
Psu: corsair ax750

If you're not getting any post screens then it hasen't even begun to start Windows yet. You'll have to start troubleshooting until you figure out what's causing your machine not to post.

Could you please elaborate on how I would troubleshoot?

Start by taking things out one by one like unplugging the HDD from the motherboard, all but one stick of RAM, different video card, ect. If that doesn't work then you can try taking the motherboard out of the case and placing it on a piece of cardboard to see if it is a case ground short.

i sometimes get a mb short after a build. as stated above, step 1, take out individual components and see if something is faulty. step 2, take out mb and place on cardboard to see if it is shorting on the case.

post back if you have more questions.

Issue solved.

I disconnected my SSD Drive and my optical drive, and also my external harddrive. Then I pressed the CMOS reset button for five seconds, and started my computer again, and everything worked fine. Turned it back off and re-connected everything. Now it launches without trouble.

I did not have to repair Windows.

Thanks a bunch!
