I just purchased a new MB for my computer. It was identical to the one I replaced. I replaced the CPU with an identical chip as well. Core2 Duo E6550 LGA775 2.33MHz, 4MB cache 1333MH FSB
I cannot get any video to display at all.
I have tried two different PCI-e video cards (nVidia and ATI) as well as the on-board video. There is just no video. Even made sure to remove the PCI-e cards when testing the on board video.
Is there somthing I am missing?
I disconnected all of the drives and tried booting just the chip.
I removed the RAM chips one at a time.
Tried without RAM at all.
Tried the CMOS jumper on all 3 settings.
I don't even see the POST message on screen. Do I have a defective MoBo?
If you are using CPU E6550, then it is not on the supported and validated list of CPU that work on this board.
All the best,
