Noob With Some Questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just got a intel D945PVS motherboard. It Seems their is no bios chip on their i ordered it off tigerdirect.com. Is it usuall for a company to send u a mobo with no bios chip or socket for it.

Also i want to test it to see if it gets power to it.

i havnt bought the rest of the part yet but would plugging in the board and turning on the system to see if i get any lights of beeps would hurt the mobo with out a cpu or ram


Thanks

Dan

The board should have come with a BIOS chip... this is odd.. I would have returned the board with a complaint.

Are you sure it's the BIOS chip?

I don't think it'll hurt the board... but you probably won't get any beeps when it lacks a CPU.

Also, any reason why you got an Intel brand board?
