I just put together my new PC and it will not POST, no beeps, no display, and the usb ports do not work. My cdrom will open and close, all fans and lights work properly. Even the cpu fan which is connected directly to the mobo.
CASE GIGABYTE| GZ-F5HEB
MB ASROCK|970 EXTREME3 970 AM3+
PSU RAIDMAX | RX-700AC 700W RT
CPU AMD|FX8350 AM3+ 4.0G
SSD 240G|INTEL SSDSC2CT240A3K5
MEM 8Gx2|GSKILL F3-1600C9Q-32GSR
MS WIN 7 HOME SP1 64BIT 1PK - OEM
Some noteable things during.installation:
Plugged the pcie 6+2 into my mobos 8pin 12v and booted up on accident.
My ram is 1600 which is by default an.overclock for my mobo
I have a lot of fiddling to do when i get home from work, wondering if anyone can give me a clue as to what this might be.. and where i can start.
As much info as possible would be greatly appreciated. Paypal donation to anyone who puts me on the right track.
I've never heard of a BIOS producing these symptoms. I would disconnect the HDD and the optical drive and then use one stick of SUPPORTED RAM in each of the slots to see if it will POST. You might also try using a known good PSU. Your biggest problem is that all this stuff is new and you don't know if any of it works. It's also possible that more than one thing is bad.
Yes, check the CPU Support List. Try borrowing one from a friend, or try at a local PC shop.
You can also replace the BIOS chip with one programmed with the latest BIOS, if the chip is on socket and not soldered.
Yes, both CPUs are listed as compatible. Write the models, to check there and make sure:
HDZ965FBK4DGI(BE) or HDZ965FBGIBOX
HDZ965FBK4DGM(BE) or HDZ965FBGMBOX
for the 965 and
ADX270OCK23GM or ADX270OCGMBOX
for the Athlon.
That is really odd, it says the model # twice on that page and one times its 270 other time.ots 260. Both are compatible though. And i think this will be the fix i need be ause i just looked at my asrock mobo instruction booklet and it was printed in august 2011. Around the time 1.20 bios came out.. about a year off the 1.50 mark
If this works, i will sex u ajillion times.. thank you sooo much.
Pm me your paypal info, ive got a couple dineros for you if this works.
That list is probably not updated.
But they aren't listed by GSkill either: http://www.gskill.com/configurator2.php?pid=2&model=142...
And they are 32GB so probably 4x8 not 2x8, as you mentioned in the 1st post.
They might or migt not work. I would choose a compatible kit from the GSkill list.
With the board outside the case, only one RAM stick installed, graphics card with PCIe cables connected, keyboard and mouse, check the 24 and the 8-pin power connections and start the board. It should work.
Check if the CPU fan does spin when powering up.
