Hey all ive recently build a new rig with all new parts il list them in a sec...after plugging everything in, hdd, power, cpu and all that stuff im getting 4 error lights on my motherboard. ive looked at my mobo manual but it makes absolutely no sense to me. Can someone help me find out whats wrong and what i need to do to fix it?
Biostar t5xe cfi sli mobo
i7 875k cpu
superflower pyramid 750w gaming 80 plus bronze
msi hawk 5770
WD 250gB HDD
Patriot viper 2 Sector 5 2000Mhz 8-8-8-24 timings
Corsair H50 water cooling kit
Aerocool vx-e Pro LE case
Whats happening is i turn on the PC, all the LED fans light up, fans spinning, GFX card fan spinning, I have controll over fan speeds and H50 pump is pumping away.
Monitor is plugged in but nothing comes up on screen
man >.< i have the same problem here except LED 1 and 2 are lit which is supposed to signal 'normal' operation. scorcher-- the manual says that if led 1 is on and led 2 is off then it is supposedly a memory issue? did you check ur memory sticks and make sure they are seated in ur DIMMs correctly?
It seems to have sorted out now, as this was quite some time ago i cant remember exactly what was wrong with it...but i do recall reseating the memory into different slots.
On the board, there are 4 slots for ram, green orange green orange. one would think you link green with green for two memory modules. Apparently it is not the case as i have two modules installed in the orange and green slots at the end opposite the cpu socket.
The manual iirc says green goes with green. orange goes with orange. i dont remember since i lost it after i got it all set up :S
Now, under normal operation the lights are | | | |x|x|x| where x signifies an active light.
Weird though, as i load cpu-z it does not show my correct memory bandwidth and latency timings, or my proper FSB or multiplier.
Stock settings 2.93ghz HT enabled, turbo on. but cpu-z reads it at 733mhz :S
