|Hello everyone, just built a custom PC, here the main specs:|
- NZXT Alpha case
- ECS A780GM-A Mobo
- Corsair DDR2 800 PC2 6400
- Corsair 450W PSU
- AMD 64 X2 6000 3.0 Mhz processor
- Windows XP Home SP3
Here the possible problem: I have built 2 other PC's in the past with the same motherboard, AMD 64 X2 processors, same power supply, different cases. With the previous one's on start-up I always got the ECS Black Series Welcome screen with three beeps, then a black screen, then Windows opens. This one however has no Welcome screen, no beeps, it goes straight to Windows. I have double checked the front panel wiring, looks correct. I am not 100% sure about the USB and audio wiring, I have one cable with three possible connectors, HD Audio, AC97, and 7 small single connectors. I am not sure if they all need to be connected to the motherboard, I only connected the HD Audio into the F_Audio socket. RE sound and no post/welcome screen - is this a potential problem? Any suggestions/advice? Thanks!
