I just built a new system and it won't boot up at all. The LED's say that the CPU is installed incorrectly. I flashed CMOS, but no luck. Everything powers up, but no signal is sent to the monitor. 8800gts has the little led on by it, so the motherboard sees it.
I don't know if it's just my set-up. But my Neo2-FR has the wierdest boot-up sequence I've ever seen. It powers everything on for a couple of seconds. Then it powers down. Then it boots up properly. If I unplug the power lead and plug it back in. It does this twice, but the first time is longer before it powers down and all the LEDS stay at red. I have no idea whether this is a problem or part of it's diagnostic features. My suggestion, turn it on and leave it on for a bit. Or just keep hitting the reset button. I think I had the same problem when I first built the machine.
I had a memory problem, also took couple starts after taking out the defeact memory. System seems to do a few checks first before finally starting up.
Dont know if this makes a difference, I have used 2x CPU 4pin power plugs, 1x old harddrive 4pin power connection in to the MB for the PCI-e and Pci slots (They say you only need this if all Pci slots are populated)
I use Corsair XMS 6400C4, 1.8v 5-5-5-18, all i did for the O/C was change the jumper on the MB from 266fsb to 333fsb. Didn't need to touch the Bios.
This is my first system to be overclocked
I love the board, I hope you find a solution soon.
