  1. Have you tried the breadboard guide that was at the end of the troubleshooting guide? The error about the boot device suggests that Power On Self Test was unable to detect the boot drive (or at least the boot sector on the drive).

    Double check your cables, ensure they're connected snugly at both ends. If you can, borrow a DVI cable from someone to rule out the connection between GPUs an monitors.
  2. I will do that lol thank you very much
    and i will let you know
  3. Also a asus tech told me to switch the bios batteries good idea?
  4. Actually, changing the battery would be an excellent idea. That motherboard should use a CR2032 battery. How long have you had the motherboard?
  5. 1 year this month
  6. Have you confirmed your PSU is functioning? What brand/model is it?
  7. its working a coolmasters atx ver 2.3 1250 watt
  8. changed the bios battery, psu has no issues, i used 2 other monitors different cables dvi/hdmi, used another psu less power 850 no change =(
  9. Did you breadboard to rule out a short?
  10. Usually, it's the video out port closest to the motherboard that is the primary.

    Also, check the bios so that PCIe is the primary video.

    You have to use the first Video slot closest to the CPU for the monitor to work,
