  1. Okay the cpu is definatly seated ok heatsink is on fine moboard isnt shorting on anything for sure, gonna do the long cmos clear overnight and see what happens then. Just to make things clear this is exactly what has been happening : Press power switch Case fans , cpu fan, graphics card fan all work spin up ok ultra-d's diagnostic leds are permantly on 4 red leds. No beeps or anything out of the ordinary monitor stays in standby mode and nothing else happens... Im pretty puzzled to what is causing this because this pc has worked perfect all year and i am starting to regret moving it from its original case! I am currently doing a ICT systems support course so these sorta problems i should be able to work out !!
  2. Thanks ill try both suggestions hopefully my cpu is ok! :tooth:
  3. Merry x-mas all i have recieved a new case as a christmas present and today swapped my computer into the new case. When i power up all fans spin fine the two power leds are on , there are 4 red leds that stay on and the pc just does nothing no lanparty screen or anything. i have checked and checked for something i have done wrong and stripped the pc back down to the bare minimum as in the first build guide and still i have the same problem. Im positive that all the power connections are right have cleared the cmos for 2 hours and still 4 red leds stay on fans spin up but nothing happens please help! i need my pc to do college assignments!! :confused:

    http://www.microdirect.co.uk/ProductInfo.a...2&source=Kelkoo Hows this ram anyone have it? is it compatible/run well on the ultra-D?. A very good price for 2gb in dual channel.

    okay thanks for the advice ive preety much decided on a 7800gt or a 7900gt depending on how much my memory will cost the g.skill ram is a very good price on newegg but unfortunatly they do not deliver internationally i have looked around in uk online stores and for 2gb pc4000 g.skill it is around the 160£ mark, which is more than i really wanna pay for ram, so more reccomendations on ram compatible with dfi nf4 ultra-D , preferbly from a uk site please :) thanks.

    Thanks for the replys, virus1_2 suggestion is very tempting exactly the sorta posts im after as i dont really get all the diffrnt variations of memory and what would be compatible with the ultra-D so more posts like that will be great.

    Hi all, i am in the process of building a pc with a DFI NF4 ultra-d moboard all of the components i am using are listed in my signature. I have 250-300£gbp to spend on memory and a new graphics card, ideally i would like to have 2gb of ram but 1gig will probley do me fine. I mostly use my pc for games like battlefield2 hl2 cs:source and for watching dvds and browsing the net. So basically if you guys could give some suggestions to what i shud purchase given my budget it will be greatly appreciated thanks Adam.
