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 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?
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..
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?
