K8M800 and BE-2400 not working Tags: Motherboards Power Last response: October 30, 2008 12:22 AM in Motherboards Share enricong October 29, 2008 10:16:08 PM I just setup a system using a K8M800 with an Athlon BE-2400 and when I power on, the fans and HD spin up, but no beeps and nothing on the screen. If I switch to an Athlon X2 4200, it works fine. I've read that other people have gotten it to work with the BE-2400 so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

(no display, no beeps, no post) Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer kyeana October 29, 2008 10:39:09 PM if you can boot it with the athlon x2 then use that to update the bios enricong October 29, 2008 10:40:33 PM oh yeah, good idea. I checked the site, there are 3 available. The one it currently has loaded and two beta ones. I guess I'll try a beta enricong October 29, 2008 11:16:43 PM I just tried it and was able to update the bios to the latest version, however everything is still the same. It still doesnt work. any other ideas? tcsenter a b V Motherboard October 29, 2008 11:52:32 PM K8M800 is a chip, not a motherboard. Do you know the motherboard make and model? enricong October 29, 2008 11:54:56 PM Its the Biostar K8M800 Micro AM2. I bought it off newegg, there is a review of some guy that was able to get the combination to work but I dont know how. tcsenter a b V Motherboard October 30, 2008 12:20:19 AM Try to verify the CPU is actually working on another board. Biostar does not list that particular model but it does list BE-2350, so it likely is compatible. enricong October 30, 2008 12:22:03 AM Yes I did try the CPU on another board it it worked, it just wont work on this one for some reason Can't find your answer ?
