  1. What CPU are you using? Is there a DVD drive connected? If you leave only the DVD drive connected to a SATA 2 port and a bootable DVD inserted do you get the same error?
  2. Did you a graphics card installed?
  3. If you have a video card installed reseat it.
  4. I have no Video card and I have the settings set in bios to onboard graphics card.

    Intel I5 2500k
    850 watt corsair cx850
    i have a dvd drive connected via SATA 2 same error

    No graphics card
  6. Try testing the board outside the case with a minimum configuration (only one RAM stick, DVD drive, keyboard and mouse). See if still the same.

    No luck there
  8. Might be a defective board.
