Well, I went to boot it with my video card / RAM / CPU in but I got no beeps....Not even the 1 beep that says that it was successful...I took RAM out..still no beeps...no RAM error beeps...
I started looking and on the newegg reviews people mention something about the BIOS revision and how it doesnt support newer CPUs
I have a Athlon X2 5600+ Windsor core...Could this be it? If so how do I update the BIOS since I cant do anything...Please dont tell me I have to send it back since this is my second mobo attempt...Help please!!
First, make sure you've disable your onboard video in the BIOS. Are you trouble shooting with the board out of the case? If not, try that and also make sure you have the precise number of offsets and that there is a screw for each, no more and no less.
You prob grounded the mb on a post some cases have plastic inserts to put in screw hole or one too many standoffs, once i had a customer brought me in his system he screwed the mb to back plane without the brass standoffs and wonder why it would not boot .
