    Doa???

    hey guys,
    So I finally ordered all the parts for my mini itx gaming build. Came yesterday.
    Gigabyte H67N-USB3-B3
    i5 2500k
    4GB Crucial DDR3 1333mhz
    EVGA 460 SC EE

    Today I put it all together, switched it on and... nothing.
    The psu and fans spin up for a second, the motherboard leds all light up for a second, the motherboard makes a long (or possibly short I can't decide, maybe half a second) beeping sound and then everything goes off. Then a couple seconds later it does it again and again etc...

    The motherboard manual is useless, it has two lines about it which basically say a continuous long beep means gpu not inserted properly and a continous short beep means power error.

    I've checked the gpu was seated properly and properly powered to no avail. At this point I have removed the gpu, removed every other onboard connector except the two power connectors (24 pin & 4 pin) and have tried another psu which I know works. Still the same issue. I'm guessing that the motherboard is faulty but I wanted to know if there was anything else I could try before I send it back to scan. (I don't have any way of testing the CPU or RAM unforetunately).

    So any suggestions/ideas or should I send it back?

    Re: Doa???

    Unless you can get adequate parts to eliminate all other possibilities, I'd suggest either :-

    1) RMA the mobo and get it checked, and if it's faulty, replaced or

    2) Use the DSR cancellation to just return it and get something else, and/or from somewhere else.




    Just be aware of letting the very strong 7 working day DSR protection expire while you try other options.

    Not to sound stupid but I have no idea how to clear the CMOS on this board. The manual doesnt say how. Or would removed the battery and then reseating it work?

    Re: Doa???

    Try holding down the INSERT key while powering on. That works on most Gigabyte boards - it resets all CMOS settings to default.

    Re: Doa???

    This is going to sound dumb but did you use that spacers/pilars to offset the motherboard in the case? Many first timers don't and screw the board to the case directly.

    The case I used is the Silverstone SG05. Has standoffs preinstalled.

    Re: Doa???

    You can test the RAM by inserting one stick at a time. Try each stick individually in at least 2 different RAM slots. It's extremely unlikely that both are faulty at the same time.

    If you can't work out that it's faulty RAM, then I would strongly advise sending the whole lot back to Scan again on the basis that if they find one faulty component they won't charge you a NFF fee.

    If you send back just the motherboard, and it's the CPU that's faulty, they'll charge you a fortune.

    However, they don't always offer the service, seems to be a bit hit and miss as to whether they'll do it or not.

    Re: Doa???

    thanks mate. I have tried both ram sticks seperately etc... same issue. But the ram was from a different reseller, I'll see if they'll accept the cpu and motherboard together to see which is faulty.

    Re: Doa???

    Ah, that's a pain. Mind you, as I said, it's very unlikely that both RAM sticks failed independently so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    have you connected the 4 or 8 pin cpu connection as well as the 24 pin main motherboard connection ?

    if so then take it out the case and test again.
