I'm new to pc building and spend most of my weekend getting this setup (see below) to work. When I start the pc I get all the lights and fans to spin. The EZ debug led of the cpu goes on for 5 sec and then goes off, no other debug leds light up (I think that is normal?). The problem is that I don't get any display signal (neither does the mouse or keyboard light up) so I don't see any BIOS. I did some research and already tried several things: - use the BIOS flashback + to update the mobo to latest version (also tried some earlier versions) - minimal setup: mobo out of the case, 1 ram (2th slot), cpu - use the DP instead of HDMI
I'm thinking i might have a DOA mobo but not sure if there is anything else I could try. Any ideas? :)
update: I have read that the RAM debug light should light up as well (for 2 sec) when I start the pc. This does not happen... only the cpu debug light does this.
The setup that I'm using now to get it running just has the mobo, cpu, ssd and 1 ram stick
2th update: success! I removed the ssd and reseated the cpu again. That got it working! One by one I'm adding the components and it all keeps working. So it was a badly seated cpu is my best guess. Thank you all for the help!
