    The mobo didnt make any sound and i am using the onboard video, havent installed vid card yet. As far as i know the cpu is seated properly--it would only fit in one way to be able to close the lever. My system includes the mobo--AMD Athlon 64 5800--barracuda 500g hd--corsair memory(2x2048)--corsair 550w ps. The monitor is always on--I just disconnected it from other comp and ran cable over to new comp.

    Have you correctly connected the power supply? This can affect the video.
    Does the power supply fan start up?
    Does the CPU fan start up?
    If you hear beeps, how many are there? The beeps will tell you in a general way what is wrong.

    Could be many things from memory or CPU not seated properly, if you have a pci or AGP video card installed that it may need to be reseated, Incompatible memory or CPU installed that the motherboard doesn't recognize or a bad motherboard. Besides the monitor not turned on, does the motherboard beep at all ?

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.


Hope this helps.

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.

Updated bios problem on a780gm-a


I think you had a bad flash!

So re-download a new bios file from there web site and try again, with these instructions....

Updating the BIOS
You can download and install updated BIOS for this motherboard from the
manufacturer’s Web site. New BIOS provides support for new peripherals, improvements
in performance, or fixes for known bugs. Install new BIOS as follows:

1 If your motherboard has a BIOS protection jumper, change the setting to
allow BIOS flashing.

2 If your motherboard has an item called Firmware Write Protect in Advanced
BIOS features, disable it. (Firmware Write Protect prevents
BIOS from being overwritten.)

3 Create a bootable system disk. (Refer to Windows online help for
information on creating a bootable system disk.)

4 Download the Flash Utility and new BIOS file from the manufacturer’s
Web site. Copy these files to the system diskette you created in Step 3.

5 Turn off your computer and insert the system diskette in your computer’s
diskette drive. (You might need to run the Setup Utility and change the
boot priority items on the Advanced BIOS Features Setup page, to
force your computer to boot from the floppy diskette drive first.)

6 At the A:\ prompt, type the Flash Utility program name and the file name
of the new bios and then press <Enter>. Example: AMINF340.EXE
040706.ROM

7 When the installation is complete, remove the floppy diskette from the
diskette drive and restart your computer. If your motherboard has a
Flash BIOS jumper, reset the jumper to protect the newly installed BIOS
from being overwritten. The computer will restart automatically.

Hope This helps

Have a nice day!
