Here's what I have:
1:ASUS P5K Mobo
2:Antec 400w PSU
3:2x 1GB RAM (new/compatible)
4:BFG Nvidia Geforce 6800 GT vid card [New, just out of the box] (DVI > VGA converter)
5:Intel Core 2 Quad CPU
6:Old IDE 80GB WD HDD (Until I buy a 500GB sata)
7:CD/DVD drive (no IDE slot to plug into on this mobo? or am i missing it?)
Here's where I'm at:
I can get my computer to turn on, and stay on, all lights/ fans work, except for my CPU fan, it WORKS, just not on the 4pin its supposed to be on. I have to connect it to the 'pwr_fan' just off the side of my video card for it to run properly, and Im concerned that this will be a conflicting matter later on. Fan speed controls all work (side and top).
The HDD nor the CD drive are getting any power no matter where I connect them to, none of the power cables will work on them, yet the HDD works in my other computer just fine.
Along with my set of problems, at no point in the machine being on and running do I get any beep codes, nor do i get any video.
I'm suspecting one of three things;
1:Bad Motherboard. Based off earlier research into my mobo, the LGA 775 socket was known to have bent pins, though I checked, It's hard to tell whether or not there are any (it didnt seem like there were).
2: Bad CPU.
3: Bad vid card (or maybe i just did something wrong?) theres a small 2 pin connector off the side of the vid card, which i have no idea what its for, there weren't any cables that came with it that I saw in the box that were supposed to be connected to it. Right at the moment its only seated on the mobo with the 6pin ATX power connector on it.
Here's everything I've tried:
Earlier I reset my cmos/CLRTC which brought me to where I am now with no video and power only.
I checked my mobo screws to check for any shortage in the board
I CAN post images if requested.
Any help is greatly appreciated, this is my first build, I'm learning a lot from it already.
Edit: I'm pretty sure it's the motherboard after reading a few posts, since I'm not getting any system beep codes, I'm assuming newegg sent me a bad mobo. and since it's past the 30day return/replacement, AND it's a deactivated item, I dont know if they'll rplace it or ill have to use what little money i have left to buy a new board.
Still though, I may be wrong, I'm honestly HOPING im wrong on this one, any help is greatly appreciated.
