| First time PC build went so right then turned on me the second time I |
booted the puppy up. I have a feeling the motherboard died but I don't
know enough about any of this to be sure.
As mentioned, first boot worked just fine. Second+ boots will turn on the
fans/led's and I hear movement in hd but I have nothing going on on the
Monitor. I also don't hear the beep (is that considered the post beep?)
upon powering on pc, nor do I get any lights/activity
from my USB mouse or keyboard as I did the first time.
I've read a few forums and so far have tried resetting
the BIOS by popping out the battery, tried 2 seperate monitors that
worked on other PC/Mac (one using DVI, the other VGA). I also tried
rebooting with each monitor using the graphics card and onboard with no
results. Overclocking is off but I did try it once before first boot (had to
reset to default), and once before second (thought it'd be okay since
windows loaded and was running).
I haven't tried resetting RAM yet or building outside of case (what's the
reasoning for this?) but plan on trying that tonight. Specs Below:
