Computer not running, most likely motherboard

Hi, I recently bought a barebones package off tigerdirect and a GPU off newegg. I assemlbed the computer and everything runs fine, LEDs turn on and fans run. However no image is sent to the monitor.

and a generic Radeon HD 6850 GPU

I turn the computer on and no POST beeps occur nor do any images appear on the monitor. I figured that the problem was the bulldozer processor BIOS not running with the motherboard BIOS. I called ASUS and had them send me a new BIOS chip. Upon putting the new BIOS chip in, the computer is still the same, no images nor POST beeps appear/happen.

I've gone through all the steps that ASUS customer support suggests and the only other problem I can think of is that the motherboard manual doesn't support the ram in the kit. If that's not it, then i'm guessing the motherboard is dead.

any help? thanks.

  1. First off I doubt that psu even has enough amps on the +12v rail, maybe.

    Did you plug in both 6 pin pci-e power connectors to the video card? Does that psu even have two 6 pin pci-e power connectors? doubt it.

    Did you plug in the 8 pin cpu power to the motherboard?
  2. more specs and we'd be more likely to help. what mobo? what bios version? what ram? what cpu? list everything.

    assuming it's not a hardware compatibility or failure issue, i'd say you forgot to plug a pci-e power connector into the gpu.
  3. Hi,

    One quick test, get the memory out of it and try to boot:

    If you don't get bips their is a problem with PSU/MOBO OR CPU

    If you get beeps: +1 geekapproved power connector to the gpu.

    could also be DVI to vga adapter if you use one from GPU to monitor (some card has issues with adapter)
