FF error message building new PC
Posted on 2016-07-25
I am trying to build a new PC with an MSI motherboard 790FX-GD70 Series. I was hoping to install Windows 10 before the final upgrade this Friday 29th July but have run in to problems right at the beginning.
I have a new Gigabyte graphics card, new hard drive and 16GB of new memory all compatible with the motherboard. But when I try to boot I get no beeps and the motherboard is reporting FF error which the manual status reports “Power on and first initialize CPU”. I have checked the CPU is correctly mounted and tried the graphics card in different slots. I have tried to research the FF error message but cannot find anything conclusive. Do you think it probably indicates a faulty motherboard or CPU? If not is there anything further, I could try?
