New motherboard problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
Today my ASUS 890G motherboard just died out of thin air, one second it was working, the next it lay dead on my tech station. So after stomping in circles for a few minutes I jumped in the car and drove to microcenter to pick up a new one (Gigabyte 880-GA). I installed it, everything is getting power, except my screens are just not wanting to turn on.

Any ideas as to what the problem could be? I've tried unplugging and plugging in different combinations of my screens and nothing seems to be working.

Maybe try to start with one video card and not two?
Or the board fried your cards worst case scenario
Or the cards fried your board?
Anything's possible

This will sound ridiculous but have you tried On-Board Gfx?

Have had a few boards (Various brands) only boot up with video output for the first time after installing the board using the on-board graphics. 2 of which were for my rig (both replacements after boards died), Dunno why they only output video from the on-board but its happened a fair few times so worth trying.

Also as xd 1771 said: It would be best trying one card first.

Could be a number of things, Just double check to make sure that the front inputs are right. This has caused me boot up problems a few times. If push comes to shove, take everything out and check to see if it posts set up in the motherboard box and not in the case. That's an easy way to determine if its simply hardware related or not. Small possibility, very doubtful, that it might be a ram compatibility issue too.

Nice powersupply !
Have you thought to change it and buy a branded real one ?
Because that may be your problem.
