Hello,
Today i got my new "ASUS M4A89GTD" motherboard with a "AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition" processor and 8gigs with "Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz" .. I also got a "Gainward GeForce GTX 550Ti 1GB PhysX" .. So when i had it all set up and ready to go i started up my computer, but to my horror the screen wouldnt work.. I tried with both the inboard graphiccard and the geforce one.. nothing worked.. I also tried to take the battery of the motherboard in and out, took out half the RAM and tried switching PSI contact.. Someone that can helpp?

Welcome to Tom's Forums! :) 

First, make certain the RAM is installed in the same colored slots Black + Black OR Blue + Blue; not Black + Blue; failure try the other 2 slots. Next, assuming it's your RAM; see page 2-22 of your manual MemOK follow the procedure.

Don't change any of the MOBO switches e.g. Turbo Key Switch 2-23, or Core Unlocker 2-24.

Hoping you can get to the BIOS after MemOK:
AI Overclock Tuner -> DOCP
DRAM OC Profile -> DDR3-1600 MHz
DRAM Timing Configuration /Enter
CAS -> 9
RAS -> 9
RAS PRE -> 9
RAS ACT -> 24
...
DRAM Command Rate -> 2T
DRAM Voltage -> 1.50v


Since you didn't list your exact RAM the above are typical CAS Timing & Voltage; please post a link.

Ive tried every combination with the RAM now, and it doesnt work.. it seems that there is something wrong with the motherboard since the screen wont react when i start the computer..

There is no reason to go crazy and pull your hair out. Replace the motherboard with Gigabyte or Intel. No more problem.

Try slower settings:
DDR3 1600MHz 8-8-8-24-2T @ 1.65v

AI Overclock Tuner -> Manual ; Auto might work but you need to access Frequency & Timings
DRAM Frequency -> DDR3-1333 MHz
DRAM Timing Configuration /Enter
CAS -> 8
RAS -> 8
RAS PRE -> 8
RAS ACT -> 24
...
DRAM Command Rate -> 2T
DRAM Voltage -> 1.50v

--- failure ---

DRAM Frequency -> DDR3-1333 MHz
DRAM Timing Configuration /Enter
CAS -> 9
RAS -> 9
RAS PRE -> 9
RAS ACT -> 24
...
DRAM Command Rate -> 2T
DRAM Voltage -> 1.50v
