Here's the story again. Got the mobo today. Happier than a kid in a candy story. First and foremost I did a POST before putting it into the case. Turned it on and everything, nothing. Did everything as I've said before, still nothing. I don't know what's up. People have been having issues with it. My CPU fan turns on, HDD, Ram and even video is spinning, lights on, still nothing. What should I do now? I'm thinking about RMAing the board, CPU and ram just to make sure. The ram is compatible, the video card works because i used it in another machine as well, but I don't know what's wrong.
I've heard stories of people having issues with the BIOS update with this board. How do I go about getting a bios update? On the mobo it says" Rev. 1.02" Does that mean it's updated? Please help. If no other choice, gonna' RMA it.
