i just got some setup to build for a friend of mine.
Intel LGA 775 830 dual core 3.0G
GEIL DDR2 pc 5300 2G(1Gx2)
WD SATA2 120G
GIGAVYTE nVidia 7800GTX 256Mb
600W no name make PSU
and so on
problem is, the machine would not boot up at all, i couldnt tell it's powerchecking coz the case doesnt have a built in speaker.
now out of first 10 times i tried, it randomly booted up twice but since then it's a failure, it powers up and that's it, monitor power indcator doesnt even go from standby yellow to normal green.
i tried to isolate the problem by unplugging all the fans,dvd rw, HDD, and only plugged in the cpu and pcie but still no luck. also tried a workin 600W working PSU which didnt help.
please everyone , anything that you can think of, it's 7 in the morning now and i'm still here scraching my head off
thanks so much!!!
ps i was thinking maybe the factory bios dont support dual core cpus and i need to update it, but not sure, does any one know?
