Dead new-build

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Just built a new system,
AMD Athlon 64 skt 939
Gigabyte GA-K851PVMT-9
Corsair 512mb 3200

Powered up bare system - nothing, completly dead
Tested PSU - short ATX plug pins and PSU turns on
Tested without RAM, - case power switch turns on PSU, case fan, CPU fan
but no Video and continuous long beep (reminding my there is no ram?)
Tested out of the case - no change
Tested RAM in different slots - same result

I don`t have any replacement DDR ram to try.  Is this probably a RAM
issue or could it be MB/CPU/something else.

Any ideas...


Re: Dead new-build

Go back and check all the connections and CPU seating and Fans and whatever.
Try to see if anything is shorting the motherboard somewhere, like a
standoff in the wrong place or something lodged under it.

Try unplugging the power supply from the wall to possibly reset it.

Do you know if the motherboard supports the CPU you have with it's current
BIOS?  I've seen some instances where you needed an older chip to be able to
boot to flash the bios before a more advanced CPU would work.

Have you checked all the jumpers on the board?
