I have just built a new system as my old build is now getting a bit old.
I have the M5A99X EVO board, fx 4100, 6770, 4gb corsair 1600 ram, 650w modular psu
I installed all the components and started up the new system, no probs so far. Everything switched on and ran smoothly, this was followed by one beep. I tried to hit DEL to enter my bios so that i could install Windows7 but to no avail, i could not enter the bios. After 2 days i still cant get into it to install an operating system on my new build!
I have tried three different keyboards, the usb wired one works(in that it powers up and lights come on, allowing me to toggle caps lock etc) but will not let me press DEL to enter bios.
As a result of this the ASUS screen hangs and after ten secs goes off and is followed by ONE beep then FIVE short beeps and then takes me to a screen which shows details of my HDD with a command saying press any key to continue (this screen stays up fro a matter of seconds) (NOTE: the HDD i am using is an old sata 80gb but it has been fully formatted)
I am then taken to another screen with American Megatrends?? at top of screen and a series of text saying what has been recognized, RAM, Mouse keyboard etc
I am at a complete loss as to how i can fix this problem.
This is the only forums i have managed to get any valued feedback from in the past so heres hoping someone knows about this problem and can help.
Thanks again and i look forward to your responses.
