ASUS M4A89 No post, Periodical HDD Led blink

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I actually need help now.

Today I acquired two Seagate 7200.11 1TB drives. Installed them, etc. etc.

This is what happens when I hit the power switch when everything is installed, not in this order:
Seagates Spin up, Raptor Spins up. HDD Click, HDD crackle. GPU fans hit 100%, stay there, go down to 20%. HDD Led blinks shortly during this cycle. And then the cycle starts over again.

When I unplug everything from the motherboard and use the intergrated GPU and plug in the keyboard, essentially the same happens: The HDD led will blink periodically but otherwise nothing happens.

It's my sigrig. Only difference being the harddrives. But that does not even matter, this problem occurs even when everything is unplugged.

What do I do, thanks in advance!
-Rob

(Note: I tried using the IGP both with and without the PCI-e dummy board!)

Just go in your bios and set your optical drive as first, your windows 7 boot hard drive as 2nd.
Remove anything else.

There's no video. It just keeps doing some cycle on which I have no influence.

I did make it beep panically just now by taking out the RAMs.

That sounds like a power cable is not plugged in. Do your GPUs have extra power? or is the 4/8 pin CPU power in?

Fixed it.

Put back one DIMM in the third slot from the CPU socket. It gave me an image on the HD3450 I plugged in PCI-e 2 for debugging purposes.

Went into bios. Nothing to see there. Will report in later.

I found talking about problems works.

Excellent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely wonderful. I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you're stating and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it wise. I can't wait to read much more from you. This is really a tremendous site.
