We would like to inform you this motherboard has been discontinued but here are our recommendations for this issue:
- Proceed to test the motherboard on a minimal configuration out of the chassis in order to narrow down the problem (motherboard, processor, video card, power supply)
- Test the system without memory looking for beep codes.
- Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery#datetime
-Include 1 memory stick and try to access the BIOS screen pressing the F2 key.
-Try using another video card to discard compatibility issue.
If you remember which was the previous BIOS version installed please let me know.
attempted Cmos reset already, nothing still no video
attempted minimal configuration test, no video
removed ram, i do get post beeps
only have 1 memory stick int it already, and tried 2 different ram sticks i have, no video
tried 3 different video cards, no ram
since i have never gotten video unable to know what bios the RMA board had.
Can you kindly provide me the RMA # under you replaced that motherboard?
Can you provide me the model number of the memory you are using?
Thanks for the information. I'm going to check the notes on the service ticket and notify the agent in charge about your situation so he/she can contact you back ASAP.
By the way, the memory you are using is totally compatible with this motherboard and processor combination.
The correct thing is to throw away this useless product hopefully return the processor and buy an AMD processor and not buy intel products.
