new bd build wont display video.

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
Just put together my new system. Fx-8120 cpu, asrock 970 extreme3, 8gb gskill sniper ram. It boots up but is displaying a black screen. System isn't locked up from what I can tell. At first I had my 560ti in and thought maybe my 450w psu wasn't enough so I threw in a 7600gt and still nothing. Than I unplugged all usb headers, all front audio and all sata plugs. Still no video. Any ideas??

Edit:also tried both pcie slots, still a no go.

Check and make sure all standoffs are installed.

Make sure 8-pin CPU power connector is connected.

Take out your RAM and try one stick at a time. Make sure you fully pressed down the RAM so latches automatically lock into place with clicking sounds.

What 450 W PSU is this by the way?

Antec 450w. All standoffs installed. 8pin power cord installed.

Tried 1 stick at a time in multiple ram slots. I'm guessing its a cpu/mb issue. If it was psu(that worked this morning) system should work with the 7600gt.

Does your PSU has a white wire running to the 20/24-pin connector?

Try to reseat the CPU. Reset CMOS as well.

According to box, no bios update is needed for Bd cpu's. White wire is a no...besides that I'm out of ideas. Ohh, I have reseated the cpu.

Edit:no ph 2 to try.

ASRock 970 Extreme3 comes with BD support even on the original BIOS.

Test it like Truckerguy said anyway. If you have a separate system test those DDR3 RAM too.

You could try booting from your OS disk to see if its the HDD giving you problems. I assume you redid your OS anyway on a new build though.

i actually tried it with everything but power plugs(8pin and 24pin) and power switch plugged in and still nada. I have removed it from my case and put my old q9550 back in my case. i am setting it up now on my tech bench and gonna try to play around with it later. need to take a break before i snap the board in half....

ok, i did play with it again. With 8120 reseated, 6gb ram in different slots, just 24pin and 8pin with power pin plugged and 7600gt on a 460w CM psu. still no video......i can try other ram on friday when i take it to work but no extra mb/cpu. i might call newegg and see if they can advanced rma the ram and MB and should get here by friday i hope. im out of ideas. if new ram does not work and new motherboard. guess my free 8120 is the cause. have no clue how to RMA my cpu lol

EDIT: i know both PSU's are good and are plenty to push the system. HP uses 350 generic PSU's in there BD builds(i looked lol)
