plecosaur Posted August 12, 2005 Posted August 12, 2005 Got new parts from Newegg, got it all set up yesterday, thought I did everything extra careful, didn't want to have to RMA anything or have a pain in the butt problem, but on boot-up I get 4 red LEDs, no display of the BIOS on the monitor. I have 2 yellow LEDs, one next to the RAM and one next to the 4 RED leds, these being on appear to be normal as far as I can tell from the manual and indicate the power is working. All BIOS jumpers are at the defaults, manual, quickguide, etc., didn't mention moving any. I have read the forum and will try using one stick of RAM in each of the slots. The computer powers on, 4 red LEDs, fans spin up, both yellow LEDs are lit up fine (with RAM in slots 1 & 2), but no visual display on the monitor. It will stay like this forever, and not power down. I have also removed the CPU and it will do the same, boot up, 4 red LEDs and not power down. I have reinserted the CPU and tried, same result, tried with finger pressure on the CPU to simulate HSF and same result. How can I flash the BIOS if I can't get a BIOS screen on the display? Is the board needing to be RMA'd because of some issue (old BIOS, inability for me to flash it as far as I know), or does the new CPU need to be RMA'd because it is DOA? I don't have another board to test the CPU in, or I'd know if it was dead or not. Thanks for any ideas and helps. Got 30 day ticker on newegg RMA's, let me know what I should do. In meantime, going to mess with 1 RAM stick in each slot to see if I can get a boot, and I will use a different stick (still Geil brand, but different build, spec PC4000) and try that too -- only other RAM I got in house. I'll unplug all the peripherals in order, from DVD-ROM, to CD-ROM, to Floppy, and then mouse and keyboard to see if it matters. Thanks for any help. All the hardware in this setup should be in my .sig. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
