your hard drive will be a SATA drive. There is no master/slave jumper to set

got a speaker attached to the mb so you can hear the BIOS beeps?

Got both motherboard power connectors in the mb?

have you read the troubleshooting thread at the top of the forum?

I've done all that. I have a few threads where I talk about the beeps and everything, but it won't hurt to say them again.

The beep is continuous. It does not stop. It beeps forever.

Basically, the first time I booted it, all fans and leds were on and everything. The only thing that did not boot on was my monitor. So i removed the ram thinking it would help, but now it beeps. Before I removed the ram and replaced it, it did not. I've tried every combination for the ram, and it doesn't work now.

I'm pretty much down to thinking the cpu doesn't work, as if it did, it should have booted on. I'm still in my 30 day warranty, so I'm thinking about returning it / replace.

I'm still having trouble with my pc. Tried ram and numerous things, but it won't start up.

My specs are as follows.

A10-5800K
A75 FM2 MOTHERBOARD
ANTEC GREEN 380 WATT
8GB SNIPER 1866 MHZ
ROSEWILL CHALLENGER

I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure i didn't set my hard rive as master / slave. Could this be the reason why my pc isn't booting up? And if it is, how do I make my HDD master? And the Optical drive slave?

Thanks!

try some of this
1) Update bios(if possible)
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/308518-30-update-bios
2) Clear Cmos, do this if you cant start or have messed with the bios (don’t forget to unplug the computer from the wall and let it sit for few minutes, if you don’t have a jumper than remove the battery make sure the computer is unplugged and let it for about10 minutes before putting the battery back in)

3) Check your psu
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FWXgQSokF4
4) Make sure your computer is hooked up correctly
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-ste...
5) Run memtest(if possible)
http://www.memtest.org/
6) Run Burnintest (if possible)
http://www.passmark.com/download/bit_download.htm
7) If all else fails then try a gpu, Ram, or psu from another computer
Hope this helped! :D 

also it may be a bad connecction in your busses with your gpu...be sure to re-insert all of your parts(ram,gpu, and cpu) just to be sure

it may also be the cpu

Gonna try clearing cmos. I can't go into the bios as my computer doesn't actually start up.

yeah try clearing cmos, if your mobo does not have a clear cmos button, try taking out the battery that is in the motherboard, wait a 1 min or so, and put it back in.

dissabled your new computer. Rebuild on a non conductive surface. Check each item as your plugging it in something is incorrectly installed

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

your not facing any issues unless your following this procedure and getting the same results.

please rebuild and respond.

Alright. i'll try doing something with it today. Although it is kinda hard to build on a non conductive surface considering my whole house is pretty much carpet. Except for my kitchen. And I don't have a electric wrist strap and I'm not sure where to discharge my static at..

I know. I mean I don't know something that I could discharge my static. So I will just mess up my parts if I don't.

Well guys, I basically kinda organized the pc a little. I re did the ram, and now there is no beeping. But my monitor is not turning on.

I'm pretty sure it's my processor now. Anyways, do you guys think because of no cable management, that its not starting up?

Like, all the wires are in front of the case, where the motherboard is. I tried to make none of the wires touch, but still nothing.

A little help here would be GREATLY appreciated.

Misc: The LEDS are working. Fans are all working, even the cpu fan.

no the wires dont matter unless there blocking somthing from plugging in all the way... I think its your cpu as well, are you able to get it rma'd?

Yes I still can. How should I package it?

I have everything as in the box and stuff, I mean like should I wipe off the thermal paste? And apply new one? Or should I just send it back with no thermal paste on the cooler or the cpu? Or just leave it on?

make it clean(take off the thermal paste... then make sure NOT to bend a pin because if it does in shipping even you dont get a new one because its "your" fault
