Hello, I have recently bought a Gigabyte G41M-Combo from overclockers.co.uk, and I thought I'd wham it in my PC to see if it would work, after putting everything together and turning on the power, all I get is the fans on the gpu + cpu + case whirling but no display or any beeps, I have connected a speaker to the motherboard, to where it says in the manuel, I would have thought I'd get a beep telling me what kind of problem there was, but nothing at all, here are my specs :
Intel Core 2 Quad 6600
Nvidia GeForce GTX460 1gb
4gb DDR2 Ram (2 x 2gb sticks)
500gb Sata hard drive
I tried everything I could think of, but to no avail, I always get this same result, I've tested with a different CPU (Core 2 Duo 5200), a different CPU fan (That default one that comes with Intel 775 motherboard), I'd welcome any help or suggestions and I'll be here to reply to any solutions,
Thanks for replying - but yes I have made sure that everything is connected properly, I'll double check there's nothing shorting the Motherboard, and yes i've tried from bare minimum with 4 differant ram sticks, and 2 differant PSU's, all the same result.
Right, I've just switched back to my old motherboard for the time being to make sure that everything else is working, and yes, there are no faults, the only conslusions I can come to is that the motherboard was DoA, unless ofcourse I'm missing something, but I've double checked all the connections, I'm certain that I've got the Front Panel connecters on the correct switches, I honestly don't know what I haven't tried, as I said it was from overclockers.co.uk, and it was special delivery, so I find it hard to believe that it was DoA, but it seems like it's the only explanation.
