Homebuild won't post, won't beep Tags: Motherboards Last response: December 21, 2012 10:36 PM in Motherboards Share Salva914 December 19, 2012 6:23:04 PM Hi All, 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 re-seated CPU re-seated mem removed mem re-checked wiring 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 More about : homebuild post beep | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Reply to Salva914 Register or log in to remove alexoiu Motherboard Master December 20, 2012 5:08:37 AM 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? | Report abuse Reply to alexoiu Salva914 December 20, 2012 9:51:29 AM Okay. Case speaker connected. Only CPU/fan. CPU fan is spinning. No beeps. | Report abuse Reply to Salva914 alexoiu Motherboard Master December 20, 2012 11:17:09 AM Then I would check the CPU for bent pins. If no bent pins, then it's either a motherboard or a CPU issue. | Report abuse Reply to alexoiu Salva914 December 21, 2012 12:08:25 AM I looked again more carefully. There is one bent pin.
