My PC is stuck in a boot loop.
When I start it up, the debug display shows a few codes, up until 4F and then reboots again.
I looked at this code in the manual and it says "DXE IPL is started.
I've tried the following things:
Disconnecting everything but the RAM and the CPU (wihtout the RAM I get a beep which indicates no RAM is available) ==> This still gives me the same error
Running the entire configuration outside of the case to discard a short against the case ==> This still gives me the same error
Resetting the CMOS ==> The first time it tries to boot after the reset it display 4F, then 67 and then reboots, after that, it just gets stuck again in the same loop.
Using a different PSU ==> Still the same problem
CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K
PSU: Corsair HX650
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB DDR3-1600)(Kingston HyperX Genesis)
Case: CoolerMaster Silencia 650
This PC has been working for 3 years. The problem occured after I installed a program which installed hardware drivers for a hardware dongle. It required a reboot and that's when the problem started showing.
I'm guessing either my mainboard or my CPU is fried, but I have no idea how to check it. Any ideas?
