I've just built a new system (detailed in my profile). After switching the system on for the first time, I get the Asus logo screen with a message telling me to hit Delete to enter setup. However, when I hit delete, nothing happens. If I reboot and hit delete early enough, i can get the message to change to "Entering Setup..." but the system just hangs and I cannot get into the BIOS.
My Power LEDS are all on and Power/Reset buttons are working fine. I get one short beep when I turn the computer on at first (which was normal enough in my last PC) but no other beeps/warnings. Also, the PSU fan does NOT seem to be spinning at all but the 120mm case fan is. My PSU fan is correctly connected to the PWR_FAN connector on the motherboard - is it normal enough for it not to be spinning until the system boots up or is this a problem?
Any help appreciated on this - I'm hoping someone else has came across this problem and might be able to offer some advice.
:edit System details are:
Asus A8N-SLi Premium
AMD X2 3800
1 Gb pqi DDR400
XFX 6800 GS
Antec Sonata II // Antec 450W Smartpower PSU
