Cant reach bios Tags: Chipsets Motherboards Last response: July 26, 2009 11:12 AM in Motherboards Share x8slider July 26, 2009 6:49:21 AM Hi guys thanks for reading, I hope I put this in the right section, if not mods please move and my apologies.. I have had issues starting my pc, Fans came on and just before it can post or reach bios it turns off and repeats over. I tried process of elimination: *With different power supply *Without GFX card/ with different one (other one still didn't help) *Without ram or with just 1 stick (ram ok) *Another processor (processor ok) I thought my mobo *** itself so I bought another one and once all together it still wouldn't reach post. The fan just stayed on.. System Specs: CASE/PSU : Antec Sonata III with built in 500W PSU RAM: Kingston (2 x 1GB ) DDR2- 800MHz (PC-6400) HARD DISC: Seagate SATA 400GB SATA II GFX CARD: MSI-8800GTX-OC CPU: Intel E6750 Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz 4m cache 1333FSB LGA775 MB1: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P MB2: ASRock P45DE Any help or suggetions would be greatly appreciated.

DVD ,CD, floppy etc...)? x8slider July 26, 2009 11:12:28 AM I am pretty sure I tried with my drives unattached ( I might not have tried DVD and Hard drive at the same time though).
