I am building two 3d/CAD machines.
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 ghz
Intel D955XBK MOBO with Crossfire
Seagate 500gb SATA 14 mb
Maxtor 40 gb hd
550w dual fan power supply
Kingston KVR667D2N5 1 gb x8
Masscool CPU fan with copper pipes
Samsung Litescribe DVD_RW
nVidia GeForce 6600LE 512 mb
I have 1 stick of ram plugged in, the 20 pin power cord, the 2+2 powercord that goes with the 20 pin, and a seperate 2+2 cord that plugs in next to the processor. I also have the CPU and GPU in the MoBO. BUT...No post. The fans all work, the mobo is OUT OF THE CASE on an anti-static surface. Also, when i take out the ram or take off the GPU, i get no beeps. The board has a built in speaker on the board. But i get nothing. Even if i take out the memory. I got the boards from www.geeks.com and it seems like there is No BIOS whatsoever. Almost like i either have to burn bios onto the board, or its a bad board. The thing is, this would be boards 3 and 4 of this specific intel type that hasent worked for me. Any ideas as to the location of the problem? Thanks in advance.
