I have a ASUS p5n-t and i couldnt get it to post when i rebuilt the machine. So i installed a case speaker and went through the basics. So i get no POST when i have everything installed. But if i take out the ram, i get 1 long beep then 2 short beeps. that means no ram, right? Then i installed the ram back and i get no post. The only thing i get is 7 Blinks from the HDD activity light on the fron Panel. Help please? Is the ram cause the board not to post?
yes and please go alot deeper than this, i have my a+ and smarter than you think, just seeing if i can get another pair of ears and eyes to take a look before i scrap this board. I have tried two different cards and they both do the same.
When you rebuilt the rig did you pull the MOBO, and if you did then it too could be a short - breadboard; strip-down to 1 stick and bare minimum to run. I've seen a bad USB mouse cause a short. Ditto with the I/O shields... Also could be a failing PSU; pull one from another rig.
Please list slots used + part-numbers of RAM modules; a link is preferable, use CPUz or read the stickers.
ASUS P5n-t. Ihave already breabboard booted and get the same thing.
I have a q8300
Two GALAXY GTX 460 SC 1GB
6GB of XMS2 DDR2 memory, and then some crucial memory as back which proved my point that my ram is fine.
I sorta cant use CPUZ considering that the machine WILL NOT POST!!!!!!!!!
A corsair HX850 that passes all three power supply tests.
I rebuilt as in installed water blocks for everything, leek testing and then yeah.
Notice how i said i have tried two different cards and i havent used two since i rebuilt it and didnt post. My cpu doesnt have pins considering its a LGA775 CPU, Durky dur, (nothing personal, coldnt help my self ) already took out cmos battery and let it reset about 5 times, stil lnothing, Im thing motherboard. I also notice if i leave a RJ-45 cable in the rear jack , two of both of the lights just stay lit up, i think the board is bad because of a normal board the lights would blink not stay on constantly. Thoughts?
I sorta cant considering that, Like i said, Have water blocks on the bord and took off the standard chip set heat sinks to replace them, which voids my warrenty. And i also DID state that my CPU DIDNT have pins, im not stupid, i KNOW the socket has them.
