New build with this mono and I'm not getting it to post, no beep. i do not have a chassis speaker plugged into the mobo. should i be hearing a beep if hooked up correctly? sorry, first build, complete

Mobo is getting power: cpu, gnu, and chassis fans all start whirring when I turn it on; however, no beep, no video. have reseated cpu and ram, have theory that i haven't hooked up some connection from psi properly. asrock 787e-itx i5-4670 silverstone sg05 chassis with sfx 300w psu ocz vertex 460 120gb ssd hyper x 2x4gb ram KHX16C9B1RK2/8X

I don't know too much about this. Here are some suggestions:

You don't need a hard disk connected to get the system to POST.
It would be helpful to have a m/b or chassis speaker connected to help with diagnosing problems.
Have you connected up the 20/24 main power connector (I guess you have), but have you also connected up the separate CPU power connector (8 pin on this one I think) ?
Have you connected the power switch properly (or otherwise ensured that the PSU is working properly) ?
Have you made the proper stand-off arrangements for the m/b ? (some m/bs need either conducting or insulating stand-offs to isolate the m/b from the case except at the proper places - like by the connectors)
Have you checked your CMOS battery is in place ?
CPU PnP cap removed, and CPU inserted in the correct orientation ?
It's unlikely to be memory (it would beep - ensure your (internal) speaker is connected - you may need to connect the 'Chassis Speaker Header')...but try with only one DIMM inserted in A1 slot nearest the CPU. (I think your m/b has the option of a beep-on-boot feature)
Check all the jumpers are connected/NC as appropriate.
Does your case have a CASE OPEN warning feature ? (I guess that even if it does you have connected it appropriately because you have power).
I can't find a 'troubleshooting section in the ASRock manual, nor anything what beep codes (or lack thereof) mean.
Finally, if I have got this right you m/b has an 8-pin ATX/CPU connection socket, but the Silverstone PSU which comes with your case has only a 4 pin ATX/12V connector...ensure that you have connected the appropriate 4 pins !
Sorry I have just provided a bit of a random check list. You may have to (if you haven't already) just take it all apart and reassemble it to find that it works.
When you get it working, please let us know what the problem was/and how you fixed it.

No video after replacing chip fan

Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).

Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).

I have problems with a new PC build. When computer powers on the screen stays blank. There is no prompt. Case, psupply, and cpu fan all work fine. DVD drive opens and closes. There is no beeps but not sure...

take the battery on the motherboard out. the little disk battery. leave it out for about five minutes. that should reset the bios and cmos to default. also , make sure you plug your monitor into it a default monitor slots on your computer, not to the VGA card if you have one.

Sounds like a dead motherboard, i had the same problem a while back, with my custom built pc, that or try a new power supply. but i'd say it was the mobo though. a new one cost as cheap as 40 bucks i'd say depending on what your hardware is, you friendly neghborhood pc shop can help you, fyi, build your own pc its cheaper!

Blank Screen, no beeps, New Build

Hi Durmo, your troubles may be the SLI card. If you are using a single 8500GT make sure your SLI card is plugged into the motherboard as a single graphics card. See page 3-9 in your manual. If your 8500GT has dual out puts check both for display. Only one will show you display.
If you have this set correctly & you have tested your monitor on another system (& it is good) yet no display from the system than contact Asus. This board was make in 2007 & is warranted up to 2010. You can do this online or call Asus at 1-812-282-2787 M-F EST. Other countrys click the dropdown menu at Asus home page.

Post if you need more info.
Good luck!

I can't get this thing to POST

Hi just to double check are you using the correct processor and ram supported by your mobo . These mobos are designed to support only a few types of memory . Since you do not hear any audible beeps of POST progress check the processor and also have you plugged all the power connectors properly to the mobo from the PS.

GA-MA790FX-DQ6 Mobo not POSTing Should i reset the bios??

no beeps, indicates you have faulty CPU or mainboard.
  • remove all components even RAM and CPU.
  • insert only CPU and Speaker (without RAM or any other componet).
  • Boot and try to hear, there must be long beep for missing RAM, if not then try to re-insert the CPU or change the CPU/Mainboard.

Thanks and Good Luck

No Video

Its easy to test your MB and CPU.
Just remove all components from *********** board, like CD-ROM, DVD disk, HDD, FDD or any PCI or USB component.
Add a speaker to *********** board.
Add CPU, and without RAM.
Now switch on, there must be along beep for RAM not found, if you don't get any beep it means your MB or CPU is faulty.
In other case if you got the long beep, then switch off and add your RAM to MB and switch on again. Now you will get an ok beep. It means every thing is ok.
Now attach your Keyboard and monitor and listen if you get the ok beep or not and also see the monitor there must be light on your screen and message to insert bootable disk.

If every thing is passed ok, then add your HDD and boot.

I think you can do the rest..
