Boot freezes in POST 98
« on: 08-December-12, 16:43:08 »

Hi, what does it mean when computer start-up freezes in UEFI BIOS POST screen with "98" in the lower right?
B75MA-P45

PS: Sometimes the computer boots, sometimes it freezes, always with the step described as 98.

98= Console I/O (VGA, RAID, parallel ports, serial ports)

What components do you have in your system?

Did you by chance just update the vbios to a hybrid version?

PS: Looking for to see if any beta bios's are available from MSI. Will post when I get an answer.

I have not found any bios update for that Sapphire card. Current BIOS does not seem to support GOP, so it is most probably non-hybrid. The current BIOS number is 015.014.000.001. I have an open ticket with Sapphire asking them for a BIOS with GOP support, but it is too early to have a reply from them.

Hi, I have tried another GPU card (Sapphire HD 3870) and it also freezes in POST 98. As such, the issue does not seem to be an issue of a specific GPU card.

PS: By freeze I mean that the POST 98 is shown for at least 60 seconds (usually the whole system boots in 15 seconds) being followed by a manual restart.

Reseat cpu. Before placing it again check the socket for bent or missing pins. If no such problems to be seen clear cmos (>>Clear CMOS Guide<<) and retry.
