Question about EPoX EP-8KRA2+ Motherboard
my computer boots up the lights are showing and the motherboard says FF on it Meaning Fully Functional but when the computer is booting the keyboard lights dont come on and i cant hear the beep that it makes i have already checked the cpu, ram ,power supply and graphics card but i dont know what it is that doesnt let the monitor start.
when it doesnt start i have to turn it off then open the case and take 1 stick of ram out and put it back in then it turns on or sometimes i have too take the sound cable out of the sound card (Built into the motherboard) so now i am running out of ideas. some people are saying on the internet that it is my graphics card and some are saying the whole motherboard is dead but if the whole motherboard was dead then the computer wouldnt even start up or boot or anything.
what could it be

remove the ram and check for any dust deposits in the ram slot, if you replaced the same ram stick, it should be alright. If you need to you may need to reset the bios, by way of the JBAT 1 terminal CLRCLK, or CLRCMOS terminals or similair, so refer to your manual. Also remove all peripherals apart from the ram processor and hard drive and try again, if you have 2 ram sticks try one at a time

There are many beep codes listed here:
What is "FF"?
Obviously, this sounds like a video problem. Is this a new build? Any previous problems?
Is there a video card?

try to update the BIOS ! ... it may correct the problem ...
when using only one module at a time, doest it work on the correct speed 800Mhz ?!
the system will be working on the BIOS declared parameters, at 677 !
Also read all the indications in the motherboard user manual, regarding memory (supported brands, speed, slot allocation .... )
thought i hope the BIOS update will do the trick ...tell me if it worked ...

it could be you video card or onboard video whichever you use or even the cable! make sure you test with a different cable then if that doesnt work try another video card if you use one
