I installed the Asus R3E, a refurbed board from Asus. When I turn on the system, it powers up and that's it. The screen stays black and I have the little speaker and it's not making any beeping codes. Also, the hd light on the front of the case isn't light up at all. I did notice that where the main power supply connects on the mobo, there is a bright red led light that indicates "cpu". I'm pretty sure that's a problem. I know my cpu works because I tested it in a different system and it booted up just fine.
The system is using Intel I7 980 Extreme, 12gb Corsair memory, ATI 5700 graphics card, Corsair 1000w power supply, a bunch of 2tb Western Digital hard drives. Only the one hd with the OS on it is connected at this time. Any suggestions would be great!!!
