Question about EliteGroup ECS A780GM-A Motherboard - AMD 780G, Socket AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit

Cannot start the computer, no reaction

I bought the A780GM-A v1.1 with the AMD 6400 dual processor.
I installed everything correct, now when I turn on the computer it starts but then the elitegroup screen comes on and then tells me to either press "DEL" to enter the BIOS or to press F11 to enter the bootup options (I do have a new HDD) now if I press any of thos two keys I get no reaction, first tought was that my keyboard wasn't working, I tried with 3 different ps keyboards and one usb keyboard (all being used by other computers so the're working) and none of the keyboards give me any reaction. I hope nothing is wrong with my board. Please help.

Thank you,

Akash

    I even can not get to my boot selection, the whole computer freezes. The HDD is new and not partitioned, I couldn't do that because I could not get in the system.

When you say you have a new hard drive do you mean you already partitioned it and formatted it? It will not boot to your hard drive until a Master Boot Record is built. You have to boot to your operating system in the CD ROM, then follow directions to load onto the HDD.

The install program should overwrite the older driver, so uninstall isn't necessary. I would recommend first installing the driver update and afterwards installing the dual core optimizer.

Recheck all the hardware connections.

If it fine check the your CPU with another monitor. If it not works then fault with the CPU or software.

Just put together A780GM-A MOBO With dual processor amd and used my harddrive from my old system. It comes up to cmos setup, but it won't boot to windows. It comes up with the screen that ask you if you...


That mean you if you put a hardisk into the mobo but you never format the disk along with the mobo you need to do so. you need to format/install win xp/vista on the hard drive so that it can work with the mobo.
So here is the point, if you have a new mobo, whenever you put hardisk on it, you must format the hardisk with win xp/vista.

Setting multi processors AMD Phenom X4 9550 on ECS A 780 GM-A


The Motherboard should automatically detect the type of CPU. Mine did. I started off with a dual core and went to a quad and did nothing. After replacing with the new quad core the CPU was automaticaaly recognized at start up and it required me to do nothing.
