GB. a970a no post

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Friend of mine built a computer and cant seem to get a post.

Parts
____________________________
Stock CPU cooler
CPU: Unknown claims to be compatible will update tomorrow
MB: gigabyte ga970a Rev.3
PSU: RX-850w psu (tried with my own 700w psu and a corsair 1200w just because)
Ram: tried with corsair dominators 2 x 2gb / kingstons 2 x 4gb and some pnys. Tried all 3, 1 at a time each slot, 2 at a time all in different slots together and separate
GPU: Tried my own 680 a 7770 and a 7870 Fans dont move for ANY GPU
______________________________

Attempts
______________________________
Tried the GPUS in each slot even found a PCI card and tried the bottom slots.
The small PCI-E wifi adapter has green LED turns on but a mouse or keyboard don't do anything.
The CPU fan seems very sluggish compared to Intel stock cooler , don't know if that is normal?
Tried all outputs
Tried with different keyboards ps2 and usb same with mouses
Tried unplugging everything and running bare minimal without success
Even tried different outlets in my house



That's about all I can think of. Am I missing something or have I exhausted all my options on trying to get this thing to post other then different cpus?
He had a Asrock bored that he switched out because he had the same problem. Wouldn't the mobo at least post even if it has a defective or incompatible CPU? I don't know that much about amds.

Anything I can try other then throwing it out my window I'm down!

I think by the looks you have tried all options bar one's you seem to not been able to try such as another CPU or the same CPU in another mobo...

Is there any beeping or LED's on the board light up?

From what my experience a dead CPU went through part of the POST sequence but hanged. Dead mobo was nudda thing!

Anyway from what you have said, i think your friend has a dead CPU or mobo unfortunately...

No Lights on the board unfortunately. I unplugged the speaker way back when I was trying the first few no brainers in attempt to get it to work/. Is it worth plugging it back in then retrying?
What my conclusion is so far is that its like you said dead motherboard even though this is the 2nd one is dead.
Or its is a incompatible or faulty CPU

Either way I will be posting the conclusion of what I had to do it order to fix the problem.
Who knows maybe some computer magic unicorn will come visit it tonight and it work! who knowsssssss/

Yep, hopefully the magic unicorn will visity smile.gif
Let's see what CPU he has tho I expect being AMD with a gigabyte ga970a Rev.3 the chances are he will have a compatible CPU.
BTW do you have the rig in your possession? If so take the cooler off and see what it says.
Also it might be worth plugging the mobo speaker back in and try..., Good luck and hope we can sort this out for you and your friend smile.gif
