Asrock Asrock x58 deluxe motherboard
May 7, 2010 at 23:30:14
Specs: Windows 7
I have read all over the internet about the same
problem I am having. I just want to be sure I
am correct before jumping to any conclusions
about my system. The Specs on my machine
are: ASRock x58E, Intel i7 930, 4 gigs DDR3,
ATI 5870, 530W continuous 600W peak PSU.

So like others all fans turn on, HD turns on,
DVD player turns on, but no video display. So
I took out one item at a time. HD, DVD player,
Still no display. Then I took out one of the
memory sticks & swapped memory sticks,
Still no display. Took out all memory sticks,
No display and no beeping from the
motherboard. Yes the ATX 24 pin power
connector is in and the ATX 8 pin 12V
Connector is in as well... Any suggestions?

Side note there is no on board video.

I'm not a fan of Rosewill but the specs look OK.

I'm assuming this is a new build? Did you benchtest the hardware before you assembled it in the case? If not, I suggest you remove the components & start from scratch.

Yeah, I am taking it to micro center ($20) so they can do bench test since I dont have any other components to swap. I think It is the motherboard I will find out and post the solution for any one else that has the same problem with this motherboard. I the only reason why I got this Motherboard was because it was cheep and recommended by Toms hardware site. Other wise I would of got a Gigabyte.

You don't need to swap components to do a benchtest.

Ok, so after going to Micro center they had the same problem. Since a bought the i7 930 from there store ($199) they decided to replace the processor and try a new one. They still had the same result, so I decided to buy a Gigabyte motherboard, they ran the tests and now works.

I recommend not to buy ASRock since they are ASUS low end brand.

The 7-seg display to indicate errors would not even turn on.
So to save people money and headache don't buy ASRock and be carefull even with ASUS motherboards since they to can have problems (Hit or miss).

I have always went with Gigabyte and never had a problem even they guys from Micro-Center said that they rarely see returns or problems with the Gigabyte. Most cases are ASUS or other brands.

I also got a bigger power supply to support the system better.

So if your computer does not show display, your motherboard does not beep when you take out everything besides the CPU.. then its a good chance your motherboard is bad... also make sure everything is plugged in properly and that you tried resetting the Cmos.

Of course, there's always the chance that YOU fried the board. Especially since you went ahead & slapped it in the case without benchtesting it 1st. Unfortunately, there's no way of knowing for sure one way or the other.

Well, I know I didnt 'FRY' the board... And yes I did do a bench test actually last night when it didnt work. I took it to micro-center to test it on another motherboard.

"And yes I did do a bench test actually last night when it didnt work"

By then it was too late. Have you ever built a system before? You're suposed to benchtest BEFORE you install the hardware in the case.
