hello, i m new to the forums and this is my first build. i went out and bought my components :

mobo : asrock 960gm-gs3 FX
RAM : 4 gb kingston ddr3
Case : Galaxy 3 with 450w PSU
Processor : AMD Bulldozer FX 4100 black edition
hard drive : IDE (working, taken from old computer)
disc drive : SATA (working, taken from old computer)
grapics : onboard GPU

so i assemble it all correctly checking on various websites for guides. It comes to the first boot so i go ahed and power it up...
i get fans,lights but no beeps and no dispaly. i think ok and i check all the connections in case something is wrong. i find nothing. i try again and get the same as before. when i was buying it the person at the till advises me not to buy generics ram but i couldnt afford any more at the time. i think, ok its the ram. i took it back earlier tonight and got some better kingston ram. Between Sunday and Wednesday i have tried many things. for instance i : tried a different monitor, tried a sata hard drive, i reset the CMOS (with jumpers, battery removal and both at the same time). so i get my new ram and i try again. and get the same as before. i look on various sites and decide to try breadboarding it. finally i get beeps and work out that its saying ram error. i try reinstalling the ram and nothing. i try inserting and removing the ram 10 times to remove oxidisation and get nothing.

im at loss as for what to do next and any help would be realy appriciated.

Hi MrPerson,

I have the same problem, done everything else except breadboarding.

Did you ever find a solution??
