I removed the motherboard, cpu, cpu fan, power supply with only 1 stick of ram and I still didnt get a post code on the led on the bottom right of the motherboard and no beeps from the internal speaker on the motherboard. I had 1 stick of ram installed with the 24 pin and 8 pin from the power supply onto the motherboard. I removed the cpu and reinstalled it, the pins look fine so I'm not sure if its just not making contact because I would think the motherboard would at least beep from the internal speaker or show some kind of post code. Any other suggestions that I should try? Thanks again for the help.
