    FAtal1ty An8-Sli Won't Boot

    lo guys just built my 939 setup with a fatal1ty A8n-sli

    to find that when i press the on button nothing happens, no bios beep, no system fans, no cpu fans nothing, yet motherboard has power (POST screen lit up)..any suggestions?

    gfx isnt in, ram is in dimm 1 and 3 power supply is running fine tried two differnt Cpu coolere (retail and Asus starice)

    any help would be "most bon "

    also i have a athlon 4200+ X2 this is definatly compatible with the 939 Fatal1ty A8n isnt it?

    Make sure that the CPU fan connector is connected, also make sure that the GFX card is installed properly.

    Yup Cpu fan is connected and Gfx is installed but im using an old PCI gfx for time being, would that make a difference? i thought Cpu fan would still work without gfx...just want to make sure system is running fine before i start install dvd, hdd's ect

    If your getting to post without beeps and fans something doesn't sound right, the PCI GFX might be the prob but I can't see why, try switching the memory in and out to see if a stick is faulty, then, if possible, try a different CPU.

    I would try putting the new gfx card in if you've got one. Make sure you've got all the power bits plugged in - check for extra sockets like a second 4 pin one for the motherboard as well as the main 20/24pin. If using legacy keyboard and mouse make sure they're plugged into the correct ones. If using PATA hard drive(s) make sure they are cabled correctly and have the correct jumper settings. Check the battery hasn't come loose from the motherboard, check you've earthed the motherboard to the chasis ok.
