And for my first post...
Another one of those dreaded threads.......
New build will not post.
This is my build:
Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 "Energy Efficient SLACR 95W Edition" 2.40GHz (1066FSB) - Retail
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit Edition DVD - OEM
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB SATA-II 32MB Cache - OEM
Antec P182 Special Edition Super Midi Tower Case -
Asus DRW-1814BL 18x DVD±RW IDE Dual Layer Lightscribe ReWriter (Black) -
OcUK GeForce 8800 GT 512MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)
Abit IP35 Pro (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
OCZ 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-6400 800MHz Reaper HPC Enhanced Bandwidth Edition Dual Channel DDR2
OCZ StealthXStream 600w Silent SLI Ready ATX2 Power Supply
I noticed the power cable for the 4/8 power is too short, so i think i can get an adapter for it, which will make it longer.
PSW isnt mounted now, but all power cables are connected to the mobo sockets, as per the manual, and PSU out of case.
However, i keep getting error codes, and no display on monitor.
I keep getting a long beep, which doesnt shut up! Its continuous with no gaps, and goes on and on and on.
Error codes i keep getting is 7F.
Also it goes thru lots of other codes before it gets and stays at 7F. Do I assume that all the the codes leading up to 7F are still problems as well as the 7F?
Switch back to text mode if full screen logo is supported-If errors occur, report errors & wait for keys-If no errors occur or F1 key is pressed to continue: Clear EPA or customization logo???? What does that mean?
Press Del bottom and load into BIOS, load optimized default. If problem remains the same, we suggest you send to RMA at last.
I have a keyboard attached with is a wireless USB one, with SERIAL as well. I connected it via serial. Does this matter as its a USB as well? As i think i need a keyboard plugged in in order to boot. But wondered because its USB that it maybe a problem?
I have reset CMOS, many a time. Powered completly off from wall.
I have reseated everything 3 times over. I have built it all outside case, to see if was shorting in the case.
I read something some where on voltages and issues with the RAM i have OCZ RAM. someone suggested buying a cheap RAM and trying with that, and if it posts then alter voltages in BIOS. to hopefully make it boot.
Any ideas what the long continuos beep, with no gaps is?
When i take Graphics card out and try to boot, i dont get any sound or display (obviously) but still 7F code from mobo.
I have tried with now RAM inserted also. I have also tried with one stick of ram.
Any one got any ideas?
Appreciate your time.
