Question about Intel Motherboard
Built new system. asus mb. phenom 9950 be cpu. 4 gig g-skill 1066 ram. 2 asus 8800gt grfx cards. segate baracuda sata2 hd. 630 watt rosewill power supply. green led light comes on. all fans come on no monitor or beeps from bios. tried every thing. even RMA the mother board. same prob with new one. atx power is hooked up. tried diff power supply 480 watt okia same thing. cleared cmos. could it be bad processor? or Ram? am i missing something.
If you don't already have a case speaker hooked up to the board, you might want to connect one since there isn't an on board speaker and you will not hear error beeps otherwise.
Also, if you have another non-phenom AM2 processor handy you should really update the BIOS to latest release. Many late model Phenoms will not work on motherboards that have earlier BIOS releases and you will not be able to post. You should then choose "Set Optimized Defaults" and save the bios without any changes then shut down (not reset). When you power on again it should post and you should be able to get into the BIOS.
A third thing you can try (after you get a case speaker hooked up) is using a cheap pair of ddr2-6400 RAM to get the board to post so you can get into BIOS and change the voltage to the correct settings for your RAM if it requires a higher voltage than the bios expects.
