Just bought a new
Case: V-TECH 8877K
Motherboard: ASUS P4S800
CPU: INTEL SL6WG
Ram: 2 x ELIXIR 512MB DDR -400MHz -CL3 PC3200U -30330
Part Number: M2U51264DS8HB3G-5T
Graphics Card: POWERCOLOR RADEON 9600 R96-D3GN\
The first thing that I really need to check is that all this crap is compatible??? Or have I been sold components which will not work together?
Put the jigsaw together and it will physically 'turn on' but not boot.
By that I mean that the power button will turn on and the the Case power light will come on.
The Motherboard will spring to life (it has an LED)
The CPU fan will start (as will the power supply fan)
But that is the end of it.
The monitor does not switch from standby (The led should go from orange to green)
The keyboard will not light up -referring to the CAPS lock . (Nor can I get the caps lock to function)
I do not know what can cause such a fundamental failure.
If I could get to BIOS - I would have somewhere to start but cannot even get that far.
I have tried with just one stick of RAM (in case one is faulty) and I have tried each stick in each of the three sockets - Makes no difference.
