GA-EP35-DS3L Not Booting....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just put together a computer for a friend which had the following parts:

-GA-EP35-DS3L motherboard
-E7200 Wolfdale cpu
-GeForce en8800GT (Asus)
-BFG 800W PSU
-500gb IDE hdd
-IDE Liteon dvd drive
-STock cooler

Now everything got put together nicely, but there's a problem.

When I try starting up, I get continuos blinks from the power led and no activity on the screen. Everything is hooked up fine and I reseated the gpu twice and even tried a different gpu (my 8800gts 512).

What do you think is going on here????

Do you get any type of beeps or indication that your bios is loading? So all your system fans and such start running? I would try to disconnect your IDE dvd drive and see if you can get it to boot, sometimes the jumpers are set in conflict. Double check to make sure you have everything connected correctly, make sure all the necessary power cords connected such as the 4-pin cpu, clear the CMOS.

I am assuming that you have memory installed, make sure that is fully seated. One thing I did notice about my EP35-DS3L was that the memory slots were very tight. If you are using a 2x1gb or 2x2gb kit and occupying dimms 1 & 3, maybe try dimms 2 & 4.

I would be worried, even though it says it does I am concerned that the EP version of this board doesn't come with the correct bios for the 45nm.
