I recently decided to upgrade the family computer (Fastback 'Cuda
) using a spare Sabertooth 990FX with a 1100T cpu I have on hand. After I had gotten everything put together and turned the power on, nothing, all I got was a solid red cpu LED and a cpu fan going full speed, not even a POST beep. I took the motherboard down to the cpu, gpu and a single ram stick, still no POST, just the solid red LED for the cpu. I plugged in a spare PSU into the motherboard and put my spare 965BE, still nothing. As a final desperate attempt, I pulled everything off the motherboard except for the cpu, hoping for a POST beep of some kind, nothing at all. I'm thinking something happened to the motherboard as it was working when I tore it down to build my main rig. I'm open to reasonable suggestions and ideas before I try to RMA this guy.
In conclusion - No POST period! Solid red CPU LED at all times!
- Breadboarded (cpu, gpu & 1 ram stick only, usb mouse & keyboard)
- Swapped cpu
- Swapped psu
- CPU only, checking for POST beep
EDIT 2 -
I failed to mention that I tried resetting the CMOS using both the jumper and MEMOK! with no success either.Edited by LoneWolf3574 - 6/28/13 at 3:00pm
