I am a semi-rookie who recently built my first PC in 20 yrs.
The cpu light is red on the mobo, indicating that there is something wrong with it. I'm wondering if there is something I can do that is quick and simple to get it to work. The power standby is green, indicating power is fine. There are no images sent to the monitor. The fans are all running. There is no spinning of the HDDs.
The red light comes on immediately.
The system has the following components:
Asus Sabretooth x58 mobo
Intel i7-950 cpu
Corsair 6GB 3x2GB (checked to be compatible on the Asus site)
Corsair TX850 psu
MSI GTX470 twin frozr
2x Samsung HDDs (not yet configured in any way)
LG Blu-Ray burner
Samsung PX 2370 Monitor
