Hey guys how you doing?

Im having a hard time with my DP55wg i just bought a new pc and i just cant get it to start

I have a:

Intel i5-670

ATI Radeon HD 5750

2x2g ddr3 Super Talent w1600ux4g9

800gb HDD Seagate

My issue is mainly that i wont get any video so i cant even try to configure anything, i get Code 26 - 31 with no jumper on Normal position and it will stay for ages.

With the Jumper on (normal) it will stuck on code 4F

With the Jumper on ( Config ) it will stuck on code 4F as well

and if i remove the Memory ill get code 28 and 3 beeps so thats a good sing, any ideas?

Thx

Sounds like time for a 'strip-down':

Mind you, there are two ways to do this: you can do it either in or out of the case. The advantages and drawbacks:in the case is easier and faster, but will not find case-related problems, like shorts from extra, mispositioned standoffs, or ground plane problems; out of the case takes longer, and you may run into 'reach' problems - power supply cables and front panel power switch headers may not be long enough; for the power supply, it's usually just a matter of removing four screws to temorarily relocate it; for the power switch, you can just do this (very carefully):

You only need to short the pins momentarily - that's all the power switch does...Out of the case also affords you an easy opportunity to 'flip' the board to check your heatsink/fan attachment setup, to be sure all the pins are fully seated, locked, and not cracked... If you do the out of the case, you need to lay the board on a non-conductive surface: the box the MOBO came in is ideal, someone recently suggested a phone book which is excellent; but - the foam pad it came with, and the bag it was in are not - being 'antistat', they are somewhat conductive, and may induce problems...

The standard 'strip-down':

Power down at PSU switch
remove everything except
CPU and heatsink/fan (check carefully that the fan retaining pins are fully inserted, completely locked, and not cracked)
one stick of RAM, in blue slot closest to CPU
video card and monitor connector (if more than one PCIe slot, again, in slot closest to CPU)
all power plugs - 20+4 or 24, 2x2 or 2x4 ATX power, graphics card power
case speaker and power switch connectors
keyboard (don't need a mouse at this point)
place jumper on 2&3 pins
power up at PSU switch
power up by depressing case power switch (or shorting the 'power' pins...)
If you get video, enter BIOS with <DEL> (may need a <TAB> to get to POST screen, if 'splash' screen is enabled)
Select and execute "Load Optimized Defaults" - save and exit, reboot
power down
jumper back to 1&1
reinsert other components, one at a time, testing each time after addition...
