guys i recently bought this board and today just hooked 1 module of ram in the second slot (first white), cpu and a gpu to see if i get post or not...and it gives 1 short beep but i dont get any display...after like 5 seconds, it restarts i guess since the post error display starts re checking everything and i get another short beep and then it hangs and code FF but no display. Anything im missing? please help out
If you are not seeing any display you need to verify that your GFX card is connected to the monitor for how the monitor is setup. I mean if monitor is set to VGA it wont show anything for HDMI, and visa versa.
If you have that set properly for how you are connecting then you may have a faulty GFX Card, can you test it in another system and verify it is working.
And I do believe it would restart if no OS is found, but not sure. You said you didn't have drives connected anyway right?
Test the above GFX issues, FF and one beep means BIOS has posted, everything handed off to the operating system
