First Time DFI Build, Wont Boot!

Recommended Posts

this is my first time using DFI... and its giving me only headaches so far. ok here it goes:

 

i have EVERYTHING connected to each and every power connection on the board (yes that means, the 24pin, the 4 pin, the molex, and the floppy) and still everytime i try to power it up all the fans spin, all the disk drives spin, RAM LEDs stays on and the LEDs below the PCI slots also remain on... but i get no video. the diagnostic LEDs all 4 turn red, then they start going away, but the last one stays lit red. ive tried everything and if i dont get this comp working, im gonna throw it out of my car and get an Abit or MSI... PLEASE HELP I NEED MY COMP UP AND WORKING!!!!

Read the build guide located in the stickies section of this thread.

 

I think that it's possible your PSU isn't enough. Try booting with the CPU and HSF, 1 stick of RAM, and video card.

 

No hard drive, cd drive, anything.

Mine did the same thing the first time. It turned out I didn't push the 4-pin ATX power connector until it clicked. I must not have pushed it down hard enough the first time. Your PSU is below the specs from DFI, but I think it would be enough to at least get the minimums started up.

Just out of curiosity , try putting your video card in second PCIe slot .... I did that with my board , although i still had to RMA my board , the board "worked" if u could call it that with GPU in 2nd slot ..... if it did it would rule ur vid card out.

i bought the motherboard from a person on Hard forums. btw, the second slot gave no video, i tried that a long time ago. can i RMA it still? how does DFIs RMA setup work?
