3 leds - no bootup

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I just gathered my brothers pc (see sig for specs) and after powering up 3 leds are lit constantly and the 4th are blinking once or twice pr. second. And theres nothing showing on the monitor.

 

I've tried both sticks of ram in slot 2 & 4, one piece in slot 2, another piece in slot 2 - all to no avail.

 

Tried clearing the CMOS - only for a few secs though.

 

Tried disconnecting everything but RAM/CPU/GPU.

 

All 4 power connectors are plugged in.

 

Only think i can think of is either faulty motherboard or the PSU is too small.

 

One thing it also could be, is that the PSU power-plug is only 20 pin (Old standard i guess?) and its a 24 pin hole on the motherboard. Should work anyways though, it does at my own system.

 

Any tips, hints, guides and so on very much appreciated!

Thought so. Thanks :)

 

I'll go shopping for one tomorrow.

 

Hope that solves the problem!

 

Once again, thanks for the fast reply.

After plugging in the PSU, there was no change at all. Still 3 LEDs :(

 

I'll try switching the GFX and try fiddling around with the RAM-sticks.

 

Anyother suggestions before i RMA the motherboard?

Test with one stick in the yellow slot furthest away from the CPU, then with the orange slot furthest away from the CPU, if it still fails try with a CMOS clear, atleast 1 hour. If it still fails this is a longshot, reseat the CPU. Still no go? RMA.

Just tried with another CPU, which is working. Still no luck on this motherboard..

 

Looks like it's a RMA

Try a 24 BIOS reset! The DFI way! See link in my sig. If still no go than RMA! :shake:

I had the same thing with my first SLI-DR. After 2 weeks messing with it I finally sent it back and the new board worked out of the box! :nod:
