Basically the computer turns on, all fans etc start purring away and all seems well. The Gigabyte splash screen loads up but I get no response from the USB keyboard and can't do anything, the usb mouse lights up and every now and then the light comes on when you press the num key but most of the time it just seems to hang
I've replaced the mobo battery but I can't imagine it's that with a brand new mobo.
Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated as I want to get on and try this baby out and I'm getting really frustrated!!!
Thanks in advance

Right I cleared the CMOS by touching the two pins with a screwdriver like it said in the manual and I've reset the bios by taking the battery out for an hour both with no luck so if anyone can help with flashing the hdd I'd really appreciate it
The bios needed flashing so that it would read the CPU. The problem was I couldn't get into the Bios to flash it because it would just hang on the splash screen so I ended up putting an old CPU and heatsink in, booting up and flashing the bios with that CPU installed and then once that was done putting the new one in and hey presto! Fully functional, lightning fast PC!
