I'm trying to build a PC, but it will not boot. Fans come on, but there is no video at all.
I've gone through the checklist, and I'm sure everything is seated and connected properly.
The base of the system is the Asus V7-P8H67E
When it is turned on, the red LED on the motherboard is lit constantly. The manual tells me that this means there is a problem with the memory - not correctly installed, incompatible, or broken.
The specs say that Dual Channel DDR3 1333 MHz is supported, and the memory I have installed is Corsair Memory XMS3 Classic 4GB DDR3 1333 Mhz CAS 9 Dual Channel Desktop. Looks to me as though it should be supported.
I have tried the RAM sticks individually in all 4 slots, and I have tried pressing the button on the motherboard that auto-tunes the memory.
I don't want to go and buy more RAM if that's not what the problem is.
Please can someone give me some advice as to what I should try next?
OK, not the RAM.
1. The Crucial site states "Guaranteed to work on all dual channel Intel and AMD platforms"
2. I got some more DDR3 RAM, and it exhibits the same problem.
I've tried all 3 video outputs (HDMI, DVI, VGA).
The only other thing I might try is putting the CPU and RAM from my working PC into this motherboard and seeing what happens. I don't really want to risk that though, as pulling the CPU in and out is probably not advisable.
Can u reset the BIOS? Reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.
And when the battery is out, press the power button to discharge all the electricity from the system. How To Clear CMOS @ http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/tp/clearcmo...
