I just finished putting together a kit i purchased from tiger direct.
MB: Biostar Tseries Ta75m+
CPU:AMD A6 3650
Memory: 2 ddr3 1333 4gb sticks
and 1.5tb seagate harddrive
The issue arises when I start the computer. I hear one single beep the fans spin up everything lights up but I get no display from hdmi or dvi. In my MB manual 1 beep means "memory refresh timer error" I have tried using just one stick and in all 4 motherboard slots but it still gives the same beep code and no display. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
It figured it out. I was using the onboard. The computer was posting. No actual error there but for some reason hdmi and dvi were not displaying. I used the vga port and it worked now all ports are responding. No idea why I had to use vga first for the other to work but whatever. Now if I could just figure out this error while installing windows "the dvd/cd drive device driver is missing."
I've got a similar problem for anyone else viewing also. My TA75M, A8-3850, 1TB Barracuda, and 8GB Mushkin PC3 post and show on display to start with but after several seconds display goes black or blank. If it is a Linux Live CD the drives are making noise followed by the desktop music but still no display. On an install if chosen then drives make noise which ends I suppose when I'm suppose to input to continue the install but the screen is blank here also. I tried Alternative install CD Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 64 bit and was able to install fine but on system reboot no desktop on display screen or Black or blank yet?!? Tho I've been using and trying to Learn Linux for 10 ears I still consider myself a newbee being basically handicapped by dementia.
I think keeping on trying may be keeping me better.... Thanx if you have any input.... my command line is basically limited to copy and paste on most~all new commands.
Afterthought I did get PinguyOS 64bit to install once and run the GUI but it didn't seem really really stable. Cheers n L8R %:\SW
