so iv put this all together very cautiously as its my first build im 98% sure all the power conecters are in the right place and everything is how it should be but when i press the power on switch things start up (case fan, heatsink fan, psu fan, dvd drive and harddrive) but thats it no post no beeps no nothing iv been over some of the guides on here but nothing has worked i did alot of reserch on the components and im pritty sure thay should all work together so im stuck for ideas
Next test a single memory module in the memory slots provided.
See if it boots.
If not swap it for the other one then test for a boot.
If it does the same I doubt it is memory related, but you have to check as one memory module gone bad may be the cause of not booting.
Make sure it is seated right in the memory slots.
If you get no joy.
Then you should try to reset the bios back to default settings from the two jumper pins on the motherboard.
If it still does not boot after a bios rest.
Then you may have to check that the cpu has been fitted into, or is in right of the FM2 cpu socket.
If all of that does not work.
Then it may be a case that the bios firmware version of your board does not support the athlon x4 760k
as it stands.
A bios update may be required before the board will work with the cpu.
I`m a bit worried by what it says on the bios update page.
* Please use Trinity CPU to update BIOS before changing to Richland CPU.
That tells me if the bios version is lower than 2.2 it was never going to work with the
Richland CPU. and is the whole problem of the black screen and no posting.
If your bios version is 1.7 you need a trinity chip to install minimum bios 2.0 to support the Richland cpu. I have a feeling it may be the case.
