I am In a major jam here, and need help. This is a new build with all new components.
Specifications as follows.
Mobo : Asus P8Z77 WS socket 1155
Processor : Intel XEON E3-1230 v2 LGA1155
Ram : 4x8gig Super Talent P/N W1333ub8gv DDR3-1333 cl 9 non ecc
PSU : NZXT 850 watt Hale 82 series
Case :Corsair Graphite Series 600T
Graphics Card : Nvidia Quadro by PNY
HDD: Seagate Barracuda SATA 3TB
SDD Crucial: 256 GB SATA 6GBS
My Problem : No POST / Video
What I have done so far :
Currently I am just trying to get to the BIOS. I have tried booting the machine with everything installed, with no success. Right now I am at bare bones, 1 stick of RAM no HDD no SDD using the on board DVI Video connection with a DVI to VGA adapter and a CRT monitor. Still no POST or video. I get a beep code for no VGA detect as well as the blue VGA Diag on the mother board. I also get the HDD Diag. blue light on the mobo but as I have disconnected the drives I am not concerned about that yet.
I have been working on this for several days and have even swapped mother boards. Both boards act the same. I have tried different Ram sticks in each of the four rails.
I have tried using the graphics card for video, in one two and three monitor configurations.
I have called ASUS, followed their trouble shooting procedures and was told I had a bad board, but I doubt if TWO boards from two different places would be defective in the same manner.
The NZXT power supply checks out except for the -5v output which I am fairly sure is obsolete in the ATX standards. I have tried a PSU with the -5v available though, with no success.
I researched this combination very thoroughly and was confident it would work. Can Anyone suggest what I have missed?
Just to provide a little more insight, this is not a gaming computer. It is for a CPA who likes to use multiple monitors and needs a lot of storage space. The SDD is for fast boot and cache. There will be external storage if I can get this thing running. Does anyone see where I went wrong ?
