Hello. I hope you guys and gals can give me some guidance, please.
I bought a Gigabyte GA-970 Gaming SLI board and installed it, everything worked except the audio. Returned it and reinstalled my trusty Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Rev 5.0 board and everything worked as it should. I then stumbled on this excellent looking board and bought it. Here is the problem, I removed my trusty Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Rev 5.0 board again, installed the Asus, and could never get the Asus to recognize my internal Toshiba DT01ACA100 ATA hard drive so I could get into the BIOS to see if the correct version was installed (I believe ASUS just came out with an update to support my FX 8370 on 12/12/2016). I get no beep from the speaker, no POST, have a black screen on the monitor, did not hear the hard drive spin up, and no HDD activity light indicated. The board lights up as it should, the red standby light is on as normal, and I saw no other LED's lit on the board other than the great colors of the board. I quadruple checked my connections, finally gave up for the night and reinstalled the trusty Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3, and once again, everything works as it should.
Any ideas please? Very tired, so going to crash, but would certainly appreciate any and all assistance please.
