This is my second VM HDMI, after the first wouldnt Post at all. The second one POST was successfull, but now I can only use my Pentium 4 630 with its heatsink. If I use any part of the intel e8400 (processor or heatsink) the board wont post. I have tried using BIOS 5030, and 4050 but neither get it to POST.
PSU : Corsair 450w
RAM : Crucial PC-4200 1 GB Sticks x 4
Please help me, Ive been trying to get this computer fixed all week.
I am experiencing the same thing, wouldn't post at all. It's not the memory, I'm using 2Gig of OCZ DDR2 PC6400 800 MHz, non-ECC, unbuffered, yet still it won't boot with the intel e8400 processor. What a let-down. Perhaps someone from Asus can help, anyone out there? I doubt seriously if the original e8400 heatsink had anything to do with it.
Setup: Antec Sonata II case, Thermaltake 500w PSU, RAM: 2 GB OCZ DDR2 PC6400 800 Mhz, CPU: Intel 8400, Heatsink: Zalman (not the original heatsink).
