Homebuild won't post, won't beep
Dec 19, 2012, 6:23 PM
I purchased a new build "bundle" consisting of:
Asus M5A78L-M LX Plus socket AM3+ m/b
AMD Phenom II X4 945
Kingston 4GB 1600 M 9-9-9 DDR x2
Seagate 1tb serial ata hd
using integrated video vga
no posts, no beeps
followed the troubleshooting steps on this forum, no luck so far
started m/b and hd outside the case
still no post or beeps
called Asus customer support; the tech person suggested I send the m/b back to the retailer
I was wondering if there a way I can detect whether or not its a m/b issue?
maybe bad CPU, mem?
You help would be greatly appreciated

Hi, have you attached a case speaker to the motherboard? If yes, try starting the board having only the CPU and CPU fan installed. Is the CPU fan spinning when starting?
Dec 20, 2012, 9:51 AM
Okay. Case speaker connected. Only CPU/fan. CPU fan is spinning. No beeps.
NO POST AFTER CASE SWAP
P8Z77-V LK - no beeps
JXBLUE amd phenom x4 no boot
No post on my homebuild. Could be cpu, mb, or psu. How do I find out which?
No beep with ram

Then I would check the CPU for bent pins. If no bent pins, then it's either a motherboard or a CPU issue.

I looked again more carefully. There is one bent pin. Thanks
