Any help would be greatly appreciated!
What I had: one pin on the CPU socket was busted. This could be the cause of these kinds of problems. Got my board replaced yesterday, but I can't deny that it sucked pretty bad. I have read about a bunch of people who had the problem, perhaps there is some production problem (maybe for a certain batch).
It could on the other hand also be something very different (busted memory, incompatible memory or whatever). I presume you do not hear any beeps (I didn't hear them either)?
edit: try putting memory only in the channel A slots, and see if your PC boots. If not, try channel B. If the memory only works in one channel, you might have an issue with your socket.Edited by keesgelder - 8/18/12 at 6:07am
