Installed my new DH67CL mobo with i5-2500 today. Alas: it won't boot. When connecting a ASUS P5B Deluxe mobo with Core2Duo E8600 to the power supply, the system boots normally. THE POWER SUPPLY IS OK !
1. Connected only the bare minimum:
-one memory module (Kingston KHX1333C9D3B1K2/8G) in bank 1
-one SATA HDD / also tried one SATA DVD-drive and both HDD and DVD
-no PCI-e Videocard (monitor connected to onboard DVI)
-2x12 and 2x2 power connected
-power, reset, power led and HDD led front panel connectors
-NOTE: I use a Deltatronic passive cooling system case: NO FANS are connected to the fan connectors on the mobo
2. When connecting the AC mains the mobo led lights up
3. When pressing the power button the power led lights up and the HDD spins up
4. The monitor (Philips 244E) screen lights up only to tell me there's no video input. After that the monitor goes to sleep again.
5. No "start beep" is sounded almost every time you try to boot. I heard this "start beep" once or twice during one ore two boot attempts. Twenty or so tries later the "start beep" don't seem to occur any more.
6. Pressing the reset button has no effect (eg when connecting SATA DVD-drive it doesn't do a 'refresh').
7. Pressing the power button for a short time (just "click-clack") does not turn off the power
8. Pressing the power button for a longer time (about 5 seconds) turns off the power
9. After removing the one memory module the memory warning beeps (three beeps) sound
10. Installing a PCIe 16x videocard (HD6850) does not make a difference: no video input to the screen
11. The chipset heatsink gets quite hot.
12. The processor doesn't get warm at all
13. When connected, the videocard doesn't get warm either
14. Tried all the suggestions in the Quick Reference (check power cables, reset BIOS, re-install processor) and on the Intel site
15. When trying the HDMI connector in stead of the DVI connector: no video input to the screen
16. I cannot test the processor in another MoBo, because do not know anyone with a 1155 socket mobo yet.
I'm running out of ideas and considering returning the mobo. Anyone a suggestion?
Thanks for your suggestions.
