    Abit IP35 wont post

    Hi

    I have just bought this board to go with my new system but i am having problems just getting it to post. I have tried building out of the case, resetting CMOS, different PSU, one memory stick in each slot, different ram but still nothing.

    My system specs are:
    IP35
    E2180
    OCZ 2x1GB PC2-6400C4
    Antec EarthwAtts 500W PSU
    Sapphire ATI HD 2600 Pro

    Can anyone suggest anything else i can try or have maybe overlooked.

    Thanks

    check what voltage the memory wants.

    you might have to find some cheapo stuff, get the board to post, set the voltage right, then stuff you ram back in

    MrP: Have bought some cheap, generic ram to try but I am just getting the same results.

    BUFF: When the PSU is switched on the red led comes on showing power is getting to the board. When i press the power button the green led lights, fans spin but no beeps, nothing after that.

    The OCZ memory is the Platinum Revision 2 XTC.

    So nothing on the monitor?
    If thats the case then setting any voltages or any form of diagnostics is not going to happen.

    I think it maybe RMA time

    Try resetting the CMOS - a lot!! Sounds daft, but it worked for my IP35. I had to reset about 6-7 times in a row, I.E. CMOS reset jumper on, wait for a few seconds, jumper off, reboot to see if it worked and then repeat ...

    Re: Abit IP35 wont post

    Are all the power cables plugged in? Not to sound patronising, we had someone not long ago who forgot to plug the 4 / 8 pin ATX 12v cable (near the CPU).

    Is the power supply tried & tested?

    Did this issue ever get resolved? I am experiencing the same issues with the same MOBO!

    Re: Abit IP35 wont post

    which PSU?
    aren't you expecting it to power rather a lot for a 425W?

    have you tried with only 1 DIMM installed?

    Re: Abit IP35 wont post

    Buff, I so believe 425w is not a lot of power, but after trying with no GFX card and 1 dimm, the machine continues to switch on and switch off, all the lights are present and correct on the mobo, red and green, tried disconnecting the HDD as well to no avail.

    I am yet to try the bios update, as I can get into post/bios on the odd occasion, usually from a cold boot. I am also going to try changing memory voltage to 2.0 (if it isnt already) as suggested due to the GeiL Ultra DDR2.

    The other issue regarding the PSU is I have the PSU installed on an AMD64 3500+ with my 8800GTX and 3 HDD running and runs fine, surely the Intel machine is more efficient and use less power? especially with only 1 HDD running. Or is this a total misunderstanding on the fact Intels are more power efficient?

    it's not going to work without a gfx card as it will halt.

    For some reason the system drop down doesn't seem to be working for me atm but that's all that I could go by - at no point had you said that you had tried with only 1 DIMM, I HDD etc.
    You can get differences between mobos though in their PSU requirements e.g. I've read a couple of times recently that some people are having problems with MSI mobos & Coolermaster PSUs, some people have had problems with Seasonic built PSUs on the IP35 series & the Enermax Galaxy series has had problems with both nForce 680i & Intel X38 mobos.

    Same motherboard, exactly the same problem.

    I was searching with google, to find a solution.. and I found this thread.

    hardware config:
    mobo: IP35 (new, just pulled out of the box)
    cpu: pentium D 820
    ram: 2x512 corsair DDR2 800
    video: ati x550
    psu: 400w

    I've bought this board yesterday... I don't want to send it back

    Re: Abit IP35 wont post

    & which exact 400W PSU do you have?

    To cover the basics you need to have:
    the 20/24-pin ATXPWR & 4/8-pin ATX12V1 plugged in plus an rpm sending fan plugged into the CPUFan header.

    If you are using an HSF with the standard Intel 4 peg type of mount check that they are all in properly - it's quite common for people to not fit them properly resulting in a rapid CPU overheat & the mobo shutting down.

    Re: Abit IP35 wont post

    the cpu heat sink was cold.

    however, i've done everything i can (reset the cmos many times, tried another psu, disconnected and reconnected everything, pushed reset many many times...)

    AND NOW IT WORKS!! (honestly.... i dont' know what made it work...)

    something strange happened: the last time i pushed the reset button, the cpu fan started to go slower (good sign! the fan throttling - wich i think is controlled by the bios - was working), and the system started to power on and off ALONE (i wasn't touching anything)... After few times.. I HEARD A BEEP!! and then the POST on the screen and everything else
