Hello all on Daniweb
I have come to ask is my mobo dead
I have a fair knowledge on pc building but this is just tearin me up ...the other day I decided to build a new pc out of parts that I have in the cupboard , namely , a Athlon x2 3600 a ECS skt 939 mobo 2 sticks of value select 512 mb corsair ram .... 2x cd/dvd drives and a Hitachi HD oh , and a Radeon graphics card ... I know ALL these parts are working , as I have individually tested them all and the most of it is my last PC .....anyhow .......mobo processor and ram ...boot up and are visible on the BIOS screen ......as soon as I plug a drive in and try to boot it wont come on ....AND I KNOW for definite all 3 IDE drives work ,,, the only clue I seem to be getting is, when I boot up the mobo ram and proc ....it says ...CHECKSUM ERROR ...loading defaults ....after some googling I decided to try a new BIOS battery ...it has made no difference .. I have looked at all the jumper settings etc .. tryed one stick of ram ... and NOTHING .... it won't even save the BIOS settings .. when I press f10 save it just goes dead ..... cmon guys whattya reckon ... THE BIN ?
