New Computer, ASUS P8P67-M PRO Won't Boot

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.

I recently bought parts to set up a new computer. My setup is the following:

Motherboard: ASUS P8P67-M PRO
CPU: Intel i5-2500K LGA1155
RAM: CORSAIR DDR3 1600MHz 2x2GB CMX4GX3M2A1600C8 8-8-8-24
Graphics: BFG GeForce GTX 260
PSU: CORSAIR TX 750W

After putting it all together, I tried turning it on. This resulted in the computer running, but not displaying anything. There are no beeps. The fans are also running at maximum.

I have searched several forums and tried several things. This is what I've tried so far:

- Slotting a single RAM stick around in every slot, resetting the CMOS and running MEM OK for each iteration.

- Changing PCI-E slot for the graphics card. I have a gut feeling that the graphics card isn't slotted in fully, but its fan is running. Can anyone confirm whether this is a possibility?

I looked in the manual for RAM compatibility, and it seems like CMX4GX3M2A1600C8 is not on the list. The closest one is CMP4GX3M2A1600C8. I acknowledge that this could be an issue, however I would like to have an expert's opinion on this, as it was an "expert" who told me to buy this RAM in the first place given the motherboard in question.

As for MEM OK -- it reboots 1-2 times when I try to use it, and then it just flashes red forever.

Any input is greatly appreciated. This is starting to drive me a bit insane.

Regards,

Chris

This has been happening a lot lately. I have the Sabertooth X58 the CPU LED and the RAM LED light came on and it doesn't even post.


Very good chance its just another faulty board. Give it another day and see what happens if it still doesn't post or anything start gathering up your box and return it.

So OP, your getting no post screen at all?
Have you tried starting in safe mode?

Oh goodness... I have a build right now that is using the P8P67 PRO board... I hope I don't run into these issues once I get my video card. Following this thread to see how this pans out. I hope everything works out!

The monitor light remains yellow - there is no picture to be seen at all. I don't think I'm able to start it in safe mode. Unless you are speaking of a safe mode that I am unaware of, in which case I would be delighted if you could inform me.

I did another testing process today with the same results. I guess the motherboard really could be faulty.

It's possible that this is a DOA GPU.
