PC not recognizing monitor, keyboard and mouse

I just received a new replacement for an RMAd motherboard but now when I turn on my PC, the monitor immediately goes into power saving mode and switches to an amber/yellow light while the kb&m remain off.

The monitor, kb & mouse work fine on another computer.

Things I tried:

- Resetting the CMOS by removing the battery and putting it back in.
- Unplugging all the wires connected to the PSU, using a can of compressed air to dust off the inside, then reconnecting the wires.
- Using different cables.
- Turning it on w/ only one gpu inside

windows 7 64 bit
asus p8z77-Vdeluxe
16 gb DDR3 ram
intel core i7 3770K
x2 nvidia evga 670 GTX
corsair HX750

  1. Thx for the link I went through the check list but w/ no success

    What I tried:
    - Completely reassembling PC
    - Checked for screws or wires under motherboard
    - checked CPU position and thermal paste
    - Checked for extra golden pins
    - checked if wires are plugged in right
    - Turned it on with only 1 RAM stick inside

    And does this motherboard beep during errors or do I need to buy a motherboard speaker?
  2. You need to connect to the onboard video out, that is the default primary video.
  3. thx but i tried that already, same result.
  4. I can barely see in a photo of your MB, but it does appear to have the 4 LED start-up indicators: CPU, RAM, GPU, and primary HD. DO all of these LED's turn on and then each one is supposed to turn off to indicate that each device has been properly recognized?
  5. I was going to blame the PSU but after reading a review, perhaps it is not the case -

    However, try only one video card and see if the PC boots up.
    Considering that there is a problem with power, it might be that the PSU is at fault.
