My UltraD is not bootable

Recommended Posts

All the power connectors are connected and swapped, all ram slots are tested (will be described later), graphic card is tried on both pci-e slots, trying in the condition without the optical drives and only left the floopy connected to the power, CMOS cleared several times. However, I still can't boot up my rig. What's going on with it?

 

Anyone can tell me what's left out? As well as what are the details I am going to give?

Hi,

have you tried the steps from the "First-Build" guide?

I don´t know your PSU (never heard anything about this company), but it might be a good idea to try a different one...

can you be more specific? like...how many red lights come on and flash?

do any of the fans power up?

Ok, if the ram is put (only one stick I used at the moment) in the dimm2 and dimm3 (yellow), the lights will leave 3 (from left to right) on and then quite a long beep sound which sounds every 3 second. If I put the rams on dimm1 and dimm2, there will be just 1 led (vga detected led) left and the 3 beeps will sound together.

 

There is no screen at all. :(

The PSU is Taiwan brand. :) What's the first-build guide? Is it the quick installation guide? I did follow. :)

One long beep is the RAM having problem. SInce when you tried it in orange DIMM and it ent away, so you should stay that way for now.

 

3 short beep is the VGA having problem, check that the VGA is seated properly, signal cable to the monitor is firmly inserted.

 

And both 24-pin and 4-pin (the squire one) power connectors are firmly pluged.

The power connectors are all connected firmly as well as the vga. But somehow it still doesn't work.

Here is the way to read the Diagnostic LEDs.

 

4 LEDs on = Power applied, checking CPU

3 LEDs on = CPU has been detected OK, checking RAM

2 LEDs on = RAM has been detected OK, checking VGA

1 LED on = VGA has been detected OK, entering BIOS

0 LEDs on = System has booted to the Operating System.

 

As long as you are in the BIOS including running memtest from the BIOS option, there will be one LED on.

 

Example: If you are getting 3 LEDs on, it means the rig is having trouble detecting the RAM.

 

The lower(PCI) Amber LED is the 5VSB indicator. The upper Amber LED is the RAM voltage indicator. Once the rig has started and been shut down the RAM LED will go out until the PSU is power cycled.

Thanks sir for the information, I will now look forward to the build guide. :)

My gc is msi 6600GT diamond and i found that there is a floopy power connector on it. Shall I connect it? If I connect it, either the floppy cable on mobo or floppy drive has to be swapped.

 

I tried to connect it and left out the floopy drive. The mobo will give a very short beep for once but there is no light for the indicator led on monitor. There is one led left on mobo though...

Wooooohooo~ my board finally can boot. I plug in the floopy power cable to the gc card and leave the floopy cable on mobo blank. :D
