Question about Abit SG-80 Motherboard
Hi, I just bought a brand new SG-80, placed it in my cabinet and plugged everything in (CD, HDD, Floppy, front pannel devices, etc.), but when I tried to boot, to install WinXP SP2, I got no boot activity at all. FP LEDs display constant HDD act., but no PWR act., LED works OK (already checked it for propper functioning by switching places with both LEDs). Floppy's LED stays on, & CD doesn'st work if it's plugged in. Already read other guys' problems, but all of them actually got their MB to work at the begining; mine doesn't work at all. The CPU's fan bends the MB but not as in the picture displayed in the other issue. Haven't tried using the eraser, but figured out something better would come up. Thank you everybody.
Assuming you have compatable memory fitted to the mobo; if you cannot get as far as the power on self test (P.O.S.T) or into the bios to set it up, remove all components you have fitted apart from the memory and the hard drive and a graphics card if not on board graphics and see if you can get as far as the post screen. If nothing appears and you just get a flashing cursor, then either the bios chip is faulty, or you have possibly stressed the board when fitting components and accidently broke a soldered contact. If you do get the post try putting back one peice of hardware at a time until you come across the problem part.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps

CHANGE THE POWER SUPPLAY.. BUT FIRTH..
1-UNPLUG HD AND TEST WITH FLOPPY OR CD BOOT DISK
2-UNPLUG YOUR MEDIA ROOM LIKE CD OR DVD AND TEST ONLY WITH FLOPPY BOOT DISK
3-UNPLUG VIDEO CARD AND ALL CARD ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD.. TEST ONLY WITH THE FLOPPY DISK AND ONBOARD VGA.. OR GOOD TESTED VGA CARD.
