Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 MOBO
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ CPU
Thermatake Tsunami case
ATI Radeon 1650 Pro GPU
Patriot PC2 6400 2Gb DDR2 RAM
Will try be as accurate as possible on this problem, can anyone please help?
Powered up, all 3 fans working properly (2 case, 1 cpu cooler), case system power and reset switches functioning properly
Had k/board and mouse issue while system was posting, could not input anything from k/board
Exchanged both k/board and mouse with known good units (USB interfaces, plugged into USB ports on MOBO)
Still no response from any k/board input
Powered down system, unplugged line cord from PSU and attempted to clear CMOS as described in MOBO manual by shorting 2 pins just to the rt. of the CMOS battery.
Powered back up, now there is no display at all, red LED next to case power switch is now displaying 2 flashes with a pause between the display, I am assuming this would be a code 2 display? Also, I am unable to control the system from both power and reset switches, the only way to turn it off is with the PSU switch
Attempted to once again clear the CMOS, this time by physically removing the battery for a minute or so.
Once again system powered down and PSU line cord unplugged
Still a blank screen, led flashing a code 2 (?) power and reset switches do not respond.
I do not have any speakers hooked up yet, was attempting 1st system boot and ran into this situation
This where I am at right now, any help/suggestions?
Just thought of something here having to do with no k/board input, initially was using my wireless k/board and mouse. 1 lead from the receiver is USB, the other is PS/2, not sure which is for the mouse or k/board.
Could it be that because the bios is not set up yet that the MOBO USB port is not recognized yet?, hence the problems with no k/board input?
The second k/board-mouse that I used was all via USB ports, again USB ports not bring recognized?
This may just be some unrelated ramblings that's going thru my mind, not advanced enough yet to be sure...
