Hey guys:

 

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!!!

 

Thanks

I would reseat all connections to make sure they are all good, and make sure everything is hooked up that should be.

I going to take the mobo out and start from scratch.  I'll put it back together and make sure all is good.  I'll post back when I'm done.

 

Thanks

I don't know if you need to go to that much extreme. I would just go over each plug on the board, maybe reseat RAM (wouldn't worry about the CPU) and make sure everything is okay, then try again. Also make sure you plugged in the power to the CPU fan.. that will cause it to not boot as well. Though it should shut it down immediately and not just sit there... so maybe not that but you never know.

cpu plug was plugged in.  I have 3 water blocks on the board so I want to make sure I didn't make them too tight.  I recall tightening them down a bit more when I 1st installed.  I will check everything once more and then re-assemble.
