Hey thanks for the tips: I dont know the version of my bios and I can't find it on the mb... how can I find out?
What do you mean with "video connected to the mb"? As I said I just have the motherboard, cpu and one RAM stick connected. Shouldn't that be enough to check if those components work (i.e. one beep when I turn it on)
I also tried with my Radeon HD 5850 in one PCI Express slot and I connected the power plugs to it. Again the same. (no beep)
I will try to start the mb sitting on my desk when I get home tonight!
