Question about Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 (4719331821180) Motherboard
I have just built a new barebones desktop ATX PC and am experiencing problems when booting.
The computer is built with the following components:
1) Gigabyte S-Series GA-M57SLI-Sq
2) AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket AM2 1.8GHz 512KB L2 Cache OEM Processor
3) Akasa AK 860SF - Processor cooler
4) Memory 2 x 2Gb Gigabyte Motherboard GA-M57SLI-S4 DDR2 PC-5300
5) Gigabyte 256MB/512MB Geforce 7300SE PCI-E Graphics Card
6)Pioneer DVR-216DBK 20x Internal Black Bare SATA DVD+/-RW Drive
7)320GB NEW Samsung 3.5" SATA Hard Drive (300gb HDD)
8) ATX 400W Blue Computer Case 20 + 4pin PSU
All items were brand new and sealed
I have connected all of the jumpers as per the manual and doube checked these
On power up the CPU fan kicks in, the disc in the DVD player is read (I can see the light flash on and off) as too is the Hard Disk (light flashes on and off). The yellow LED next to the LAN (RJ45) socket also lights up. However there is no bleep and no signal transmitted to the monitor. I cannot see that there is a power LED on the motherboard. I have 2 sticks of 2Gb memory and I have each combination in all of the 4 available slots with the same result. I have a PC PCI Diagnostic Card Motherboard Analyzer and on boot it goes through codes C!, C3, 21 and always stops at 25.
Any help or advise is greatly appreciated
