My motherboard will not post. I made the mistake of not purchasing a motherboard speaker so I cannot hear any beeps. I have tried an out of box setup (breadboarding?) with just one stick of ram and the cpu with the 24 pin and the 8 pin power plugs. I get no signal/POST. When I have it in the case on the standoff pins with everything plugged in, the fans all run but I still get no post. I contacted newegg when this first happened and was informed I had a bad motherboard. So I RMA'd it and purchased a new one. Same problem. So then I contacted the manufacturer of my current motherboard, ASUS and I am told that it is definately my ram. Still doesnt work. What should I do?

  1. So you have replaced the ram?
  2. Yes I replaced my oginal corsair pair with the G-skill listed above. It was a prdouct that the motherboard listed as a qualified vendor. I also tried resetting the CMOS battery

    Not your exact model, but I'd be suspect of that no-name PSU:

    That would be my next component to replace.

    ^^ this.
  5. Agreed that your PSU doesn't look great. Get a cheap cosair/antec unit
  6. Thank you for the helpful responses! I have RMA'd my processor, and I plan on purchasing a new power supply based on your feedback. Would you be able to suggest a good power supply? Would either of these be good?

  8. The best is that corsair unit. I wouldn't trust raidmax PSU's.
