|So I installed everything, the ASUS M4N78 Pro, AMD 955 X4 Black ed, OCZ Reaper 2x2gb Ram. I run power to the PC, lights up everything fine except it's not sending anything to the monitor, keyboard, or mouse. Turn it off by holding the power button, don't do anything, but figure second time's a charm. Hit the power button, and boom it starts up sends power to monitor, etc.|
I did a Repair install of Windows, as was recommended. After it restarted from the first things installed, it did the same thing: nothing going to monitor, mouse, etc. So I do a hard shutdown and start it up, everything was fine. It resumed installing windows, and all was well.
Now anytime I do a restart, it does the same thing...so I have to do a hard shutdown to get it to work. And it's working really slow...even slower than my old single core 2.2ghz processor. Is this because it's not POSTing correctly? Something to do with drivers? (haven't installed the drivers for the board yet) Please help, so I can spare this build from my stupidity!
