Road bumps in new AMD Phenom II Rig
So got all the parts together today for my AMD P2 Rig. Basically, it with won't post, or posts and freezes around when it is initializing USB devices. The LCD read out will either be like 4E, 49, 50, or 52, and in the manual 50 is initializing USB devices. It was doing this when I had my USB mouse hooked up via USB to PS/2 adapter and directly connected via USB. When it freezes at 52, it generally has read all 8GB of ram. The only thing I can think of is maybe when I was cleaning the CPU to get it read, some Arctic Clean got on the bottom. It looks dry to me and posts fine, so I am starting to wonder if I got a bad board or CPU or??? Thanks in advance guys.
EDIT: Om the manual it says to reset the CMOS to fix the error with USB, but I've done that, pulled the battery, everything and still get that error.
