ASRock 990FX Extreme4 error 36

I was not having any problems with my ASRock 990FX Extreme4 mobo until I did a BIOS update to 2.0. Ever since updating the bios I am getting an error 36 if I am trying to cold boot my system. But after when I turn off the computer and turn it back on then it will run properly. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks

I think that there might be changes done in the new BIOS version that you have installed. So, what you can do is try to move the RAM sticks to the blue slots instead of the white RAM slots and see if the problem gets resolved. If not then I would opt you to downgrade your motherboard BIOS version to 1.80 which will solve your issue anyways.

If you are getting error code 36 with the BIOS 2.00 version then try to update the BIOS to 2.00B version from this link http://download.asrock.com/990FX2.00B.zip and see if that works for you. If still it doesnt work then you will have to mail Asrock support and ask for a newer BIOS or latest beta ones that will solve this problem for sure.

For some people moving the RAM to blue slot seems to be working but for some it is not working, even with newer RAM sticks they are getting same error. However, clearing the CMOS seems to be another resolution for this issue, so simply clear the cmos by pressing the button which is on the back of the motherboard and it will definitely work for sure.
