I built a new computer: ASUS A8N-E motherboard, AMD Athlon 64 3200+, Sonata 2 case with 450 Wt power supply.However, the first boot failed: no beep, nothing in the monitor.
All the fans work, "power" button turns the power on but cannot turn it off (even after pressing it for 4 seconds as instructions say), "reset" button doesn't work either. I did the minimal boot: only CPU, memory (2 sticks) and videocard. Everything is brand new. I have checked all the connections several times, re-placed CPU 4 times - nothing!!! No beep!!!
I had the same problem a couple weeks ago with ASUS A8N5K. That time I made a decision that the motherboard was bad and I replaced it for ASUS A8N-E. However, the same sad story...
Could anybody help me???
Thank you for your time.
