Im currently in the process of completing my first build. Today i finally got to the BIOS screen. All of my temperature seemed to be fine, so i proceeded to put my windows 7 CD in the disc drive. I started the install process for windows 7 no problem, i walked away from the computer during this install once it was up and going. Well I came back to my computer a little while later and everything was off. I thought no big deal, it said before i started the install that throughout the process it would restart several times. Well the computer never came back on. So I tried turning on the computer and now it wont turn on, the screen stays blank and it keeps turning off soon after I hit the power button. I have an ASUS Maxima IV extreme mother board and on the board get the debug led 08 in the manual it says this code indicated "system agent initialization after microcode loading". Can anyone help me?
Would help to list your specs. inc. your PSU model & capacity. Meanwhile re-seat your RAM carefully, then try running on one stick at a time to see if that makes a difference.
Edit:- After a bit of research others have had this prob and had to resort to clear cmos and even flash their BIOS to progress... http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?1142-How-to-us...
