Default Gigabyte GA-8I945GMH-RH Not booting, not one bit

Ok,

Just put together my new shiney Dual Core PC and I cant get the **** thing to boot.

Important stuff is

Gigabyte GA-8I945GMH-RH
E6300 Core 2 Duo
Onboard graphics
Corsiar 512MB DDR2 667MHz 64Mx64 non-ECC 240 DIMM Unbuffered CL5 RAM

I put it all together and when I power up the fans all spin, the harddrive spins up, but I get nothing on the screen, no bios, no beeps, nothing. Changed cables around, checked everything is seated properly, psu is powerful and new, tried different screens, tried all sorts :/

Any ideas you wonderful people?

Thats not true. I have the same problem with a Gigabyte 8I915G mobo but I replaced it with a different model by Gigabyte and it didn't change anything, couldn't get to the bios. But there is a chance it could be the motherboard. Try find another system to test each component on and if you find out what wrong get it replaced under warrenty.

That’s exactly the same symptoms as mine but my system was running fine for 9 months and one morning wouldn't start up. I ended up buying a new mobo and tried everything in that one and nothing changed (Ended up replacing PSU and RAM aswell which was a waste of money). I'm replacing my processor which I should get tomorrow (Core 2 Duo E6400) cos I think that might be my problem but in your case though it sounds like the motherboard. Make sure you include EVERYTHING with your motherboard when returning, they like to find any reason not to take it, although if your returning within 14 days shouldn't be too many problems. Good Luck

That aint good, If you are willing to spend £100 I can reccomend a decent mobo, it's the one I replaced mine with and it does support Core 2 Duo but it isn't mATX like your current board http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...me=GA-965P-DS3
