New Build. No Boot....

  Pilch from 15:53 26 Dec 04

I have just recently built a new machine.

I installed everything 9DFI Lan Party NForce2 Rev B Board and the components.

512mb Cosair Ram

Cheap Graphics Card

450W Antec PSU

XP2500 Chip

SATA WD 80gb Drive

Sony DVD Drive.

Now when i went to turn on it started to whir into life then stop's.

Keeps doing this, it wont even post or anything. I tried the chip in my PC fine, my chip in it and same problem.

The ram seemed to cause my computer to crash and so i took the ram out and so no problems again. So i tried my ram in the new build and still the same problem.

The LED's on the board go 1+2 on,off 3 on/off 1/2 back on off and that is it... in all power up for about a second. I have tried disconnecting things and swapping them over but to no avail.

I tried to reset the bios but to no avail... so any idea's guy's?

Hi, I assume you are trying to boot from hdd - have you tried booting from original OS cd? I am NOT an expert, this is just a thought!

Happy New Year

I cant even get it too boot properly... turns on then stops after a second... even tried the built on switches on the board....

Hi again - I repeat I am NOT an expert, but - if it was mine I would start again from absolute scratch with just the mobo/monitor/mouse , then fire-up and add one item at a time (re-starting each time) to try and get into and check the BIOS - that is of course, as long as it doesn't blow-up in the process. Not trying to 'funny-funny' - I wish you good luck!

Have you tried it out of the case maybe shorting on a stand off.

to run it on outside the case?

  Technotiger 16:48 26 Dec 04

As Rayuk says, yes.

Sounds like you have the reset switch on the motherboard the wrong way round. This will make the system to continuously reboot.

Done it myself a few times.;-)

no reset button connected.. the board has built in switches...

rayuk what is best to stand the board on whilst i test it? an anti static bag?

A piece of cardboard will do.the bottom of the motherboard box
