Hi All,
I purchased a new build "bundle" consisting of:
Asus M5A78L-M LX Plus socket AM3+ m/b
AMD Phenom II X4 945
Kingston 4GB 1600 M 9-9-9 DDR x2
Seagate 1tb serial ata hd
using integrated video vga

no posts, no beeps
followed the troubleshooting steps on this forum, no luck so far

re-seated CPU
re-seated mem
removed mem
re-checked wiring
started m/b and hd outside the case
still no post or beeps

called Asus customer support; the tech person suggested I send the m/b back to the retailer

I was wondering if there a way I can detect whether or not its a m/b issue?
maybe bad CPU, mem?

You help would be greatly appreciated

Are any of the LEDs lighting?

Do any of the fans spin up?

Can you hear the fan on the PSU spin up?

Are you sure that the header connections are correct?

m/b LED is on "green"
Front panel LED is on
cpu, PSU, and case fan all are spinning

not 100% sure about the header connections
the wires that are paired have a white common color. I'm using the white wire as - and ground

Ok... this is good news as it means that the PSU is powering on which means that the motherboard is working at least to some degree. When you press the power button on the case it shorts the two pins on the power on header, this means that at least this is working.

I will have to look at the installation manual to see what wires go to what headers.

I have a Christmas party to attend, so it will be tomorrow before I can get back to this.

Maybe you can try the RAM modules individually...
