When I power on I get a single beep, press 'delete' for CMOS to go to BIOS and get a blank screen or a scrambled picture, sometimes a faint BIOS logo appears. I've done this about 100 times now!!
My biggest worry is that the fan on the CPU does not start immediatly. I give it a few seconds and turn off for a while. I've been at this for close on 3 weeks now on and off. I'm on my second m/board! Took the first back thinking it was faulty!
Of course everything being the latest bits I cannot check out everything on my other PC as its DDR1 etc.
I have tried other components, drives I know work etc.
As I did not buy all the parts at one place I am in a bit of a pickle. The only store I rang wanted $100 up front for their man just to look at it! Fixing was lots more!!
Has anyone any suggestions? Nice ones please as to how I can work round my problem/s?
I have swopped the Ram into other slots, no joy there.
The only thing I haven't re-installed is the CPU.......
Heres hoping someone out there can help. Gigabyte could'nt.
EXTRA INFO AS OF OCTOBER 29
I have been lucky. The store I bought the motherboard,Ram and PSU .but not the HHD or CPU, had me take in into them yesterday afternoon and we tested it on the spot firstly. Thankfully the blank or scrambled screen showed up. It was a new fault on them and one guy has 18 years in IT!! They shipped by their courier to their head office workshop and this morning an early call from their other Tech was to say after lots of testing he is sure the 945g chipset is corrupted in some way. The PC works with an VGA card in it. But of course the 945g is an intergrated type. Its not a gaming system. So off the motherboard goes back to Gigabyte and hopefully I will see a BRAND NEW arrive in a few days, pretested before I get it, I hope!
