Red Screen on First Boot
I just received 90% of my order today. Everything except my hard drive,which conveniently was shipped alone, and will arive 5 days from now, after the long weekend...
Ive received everything else and built my system today. When I power it on, The background is all red and distorted, but things seem to work fine. Obviously I cant do much without the hard drive, but the mobo posts and things seem ok.
The only problem is that the background is all red. I have an ASUS P6T mobo, i7 920, saphire 1gb 4870, ASUS VW246H Black 24" monitor.
Any ideas on whats causing this? Maybe something is plugged in wrong? I used both power connectors on the video card, also for the processor, i used 8 pins to power it. 4 of them were covered over, i removed that (the 8 pin power connection by the chip).
Thanks guys! Im almost there!
