    DX79SI does not start!

    Marco Romero

      I have built my latest computer for 3D design using Intel Extreme DX79SI Desktop Motherboard; once finished the assembly of all components, when turning ON the computer, only seen a flash of 1 second duration in all LEDs, light of the cooling system, and 1 turn of all fan coolers.


      I tried and discarded and all most obvious fails, the power supply and case connectors; any attached peripherals (DVD-rom, video card and hard disks) belonged to a previous computer and work perfectly. By discard, the only thing I have left suspected is the motherboard and processor, and I have already tried all the recommendations suggested by INTEL unsuccessfully.




      Dear forum users, I come to you asking for your help in the hope of receiving a suggestion to solve this situation that has me very concerned. It has been an significant investment of time and money in order to work faster and better with a new system. I do not know what else to do.


      Thank you very much in advance for your comments and recommendations.


      Best regards,


      Marco Romero
