Hey guys. z77 Extreme4 board.

Just assembled first build on top of MOBO box. CPU fan, PSU fan, and video card fan all run. Asrok "Dr. Debug" panel lights up and displays "00". Yet no beeps, no feedback when I plug in monitor.

I've tried switching memory banks, re-installing video card and CPU, resetting board, etc. 24 pin connector is plugged in. I have two 4 pin atx connectors coming from my PSU, but only one matches up with the holes on the mobo, so I have one 4 pin plugged in. Debug panel lights up with it, so it's getting power. Speaker is plugged in.


I'm at a lost here.

That involves just pressing the button, right? I tried that, didn't work.

One thing, my PSU did not come with a wall cord. So I'm using a 7 year old wall cord from an old pc. Could it somehow not be powerful enough? I doubt it, just throwing it out there.

Think I may have bent some CPU pins? I probably still would have gotten a beep though.

No feedback on video card to monitor either.

since the fans run I doubt its a PSU problem.
I would check for bent pins and maybe try using only one stick of RAM to see if it boots.

Already tried every combination of ram.

Just checked, there are a couple of bent pins. Not sure how I caused it,since I dropped it in the right way and then closed the latch. I'll try to straighten them out and see what happens.

Would bent pins cause it not to post?

Looks like three pins on one corner somehow squashed down. Can't fix them. Actually,I believe I did this after re-installing t a second time. Oh well.

What should I do with my cpu now? They seem fragile, should I take any extra procaution when storing until I get a new mobo?

I'm going to buy a asus mobo from Best Buy today. Guess I'll get a refund from newegg.

I have the same mobo/cpu and get no beep when I start up. Only beeps I have heard is when I go in the bios. Just put the cpu back in the little plastic case and it will be fine.
