This is my situation. Building a brand new box. I have the PSU, motherboard, cpu, video and memory in place. I try and power on the unit. I get no video response nor any audio (post beeps) and 4 red diag lights on mobo. I remove every except the PSU, mobo, and CPU (thinking I'll get no memory beeps). No Audio and still 4 red diag lights. Just for the Heck of it (and cause it was late and I was tired) I removed the CPU and power on just the mobo. No Beeps and same 4 diag lights.
When I first started I had the 24 pin cable, a "regular" 4 pin molex (the kind used on HD/cdroms), and the small "floppy" sized on as well. At some point in my many boot attempts I removed all but the 24 pin power. I noticed no differance and no lights changing on diag so I assumed they wer to power onboard items such as sound/sata/etx.
Is this a bad board? am I doing something wrong? If it is a bios issue how can I flash it if I can't even boot it? I willing to do just about ANYTHING at this point. I just want to know what anything is.
BTW This is my first DFI and first Athon64, but I'm not a novice PC builder. Suggestions?
