Hey gang,

I am building a new computer and have run into a road block. It will not boot. Right now I have the mobo out of the case, the only connected to it is power supply, CPU, fan, 1 stick of RAM, and video card. Turn it on and fans start, my monitor light turns solid for about 3 seconds and then it clicks off. The fans continue to run.

It does not matter whether the RAM is in or not, I get the same result. It does not matter if the CPU is in or not, I get the same result.

Unfortunately I am unable to swap parts as I don't have any spares of CPU, mobo or RAM that are compatable as these components are fairly leading edge and none of my computers have these capabilites. I have obtained an RMA number for returning the mobo, but before I actually shipped it back I thought I would ask with ya'll what your opinion is.

Oh, and I have a power supply tester and all is well with the power supply.

Too bad you have no spare parts around. They could really help in finding the faulty part. Make sure you have a motherboard speaker plugged in and listen to the bios beep codes (if you can). The beep codes can usually point to exactly what is wrong.

Good luck.

Thanks for your response, but no beeps.

I have shipped the mobo back to retailer. We'll see, huh?
