New motherboard doesn't work!

Recommended Posts

hello everyone =)

I'm new to here, and the DFI boards.

 

I just got my DFI Lanparty UT NF3 250gb, and replaced my old ASUS K8VSE Deluxe.

 

I plugged in everything properly, and what not, and I turn on the power, and it makes beeps...

 

It used to be 1 long beep, and 3 small beeps, but I swapped out my video card now, and now its just 1 long beep, about 5 seconds long, or it could be just a long beep with a lot of small beeps.

 

So these are the things I tried.

 

Replacing the Video Card

Running with 1 Ram stick

Taking out all drives

taking out all PCI cards

Unplugging everything except for CPU, Mobo, Video Card, and 1 Ram stick.

Putting ram into different slots

 

I have it sitting on my desk right now, motherboard ontop of a towel and a phonebook (just incase it was a short), with NOTHING in it, except for CPU, videocard, and a Stick of ram.

 

Side note: The DRAM light is always on, no matter if I have 1, 2, or 0 Ram Sticks in there.

The standby light was always on also, even if the computer was off, or on.

 

Update: No more beeping, but no picture either.

 

Please help =(

So you have tried the initial build guide? Run a long cmos-clear overnight and try again, this may help. I think you have problems because of your Corsair memory sticks, can you test other sticks?

They sent me the wrong build guide. but I do know my way about building a computer. I'll try a long CMOS clear right now. A few hours should suffice.

tried the installation guide thingy, and thast what I did in the first place (for the most part, I have a different board, so I had to improvise)

 

I tried the jumper reset, but still doesn't work.

 

Anymore suggestions? I'm going to be getting another stick of ram to try, Geil Golden Dragon Series stuff.

Another stick of ram didnt work...

 

Hypathetically...if the CPU was broken, would that cause the DRAM LED to turn on since the memory controller is on the chip?

 

I think I might RMA my CPU then.

Its normal for the DRAM light to be on, What are the timings your memory is supposed to run at? and are you running them at DDR550 or DDR400?

The computer has never posted, i've never seen anything on my screen.

The standby light is always on, even after I hit the power button.

 

As far as I know...the RAM should have been autoset on DDR400 like it was supposed to.

Do you think it is the CPU thats the problem?

As far as I can remember one long continuous beep is a memory error.

The standby light should always be on if there is power supplied to the PSU so thats ok.

Now the fact that you said the DRAM light is always on even if you dont have RAM in the slots doesnt sound right to me. Do you still have the ASUS board to test your CPU with it ?

If the CPU works on that then maybe the RAM slots have been damaged, im not sure if they work independantly or if one goes then they all go

How can I tell if my CPU works if the ASUS board doesn't POST? That board is even worse lol...the keyboard doesn't even power on, atleast the DFI's does.
