Default new motherboard issues

I just replaced my Asus P5GD1 mobo and installed a Foxconn 915P7AC-8KS mobo in my computer(listed in sig).

When I try to boot up the computer it constantly acts like it's rebooting every 1/2 second. Doesn't even get close to starting POST.

Right after you press the button to start the computer up it tries to boot, then 1/2 second later it will restart again, again, again, again, continuously. I get no beeps, tried unhooking drives, and peripherals to no avail.

I tried to clear the CMOS.

any other ideas?

RAM is good, works fine in old motherboard. PSU also is good. 4 pin connector is plugged into the motherboard.

Default Re: new motherboard issues

Well i just found something very interesting. Looking at the piece that holds the processor down, not the latch but the part that holds the processor down(on all the corners) is bent. The processor feels like it is solid in there when it is latched down but even if a couple of the pins were not touching slightly could this lead to my problem? If this is causing my problem do I dare try to bend it back? I am baffled how this even happened, I sure as heck didn't do it.

EDIT: I looked at my old motherboard and it has this same bend to it. I guess I never noticed that they had this bend in them.

Default Re: new motherboard issues

I am getting so aggravated with this I would like to take the tower in an empty field, toss a grenade in there and be done with it.

Still having the EXACT same problem with a NEW motherboard straight from FoxConn. I got my old one RMA'd. I know all my other components work fine, tried them in the Asus board. Does FoxConn make junk or what? They sure aren't getting any of my business again.

I'm about ready to go back to my Asus mobo, even though it's a POS too. Always takes 2 tries to boot on a cold startup. I bought another GB of RAM(already had 2GB) in it. Low and behold the mobo won't recognize anymore than 2GB of RAM. Grrrrrrrrrrrr. So I have a stick of RAM that's worthless, maybe I'll use it as a butter knife.

I have the worst luck with motherboards it seems.

Can anybody recommend a RELIABLE motherboard for me? I don't care if it's used or new, I just need something to get this paperweight working again.

Socket 775 P4 800 Mhz FSB(3.0 Ghz)
DDR 400 Memory(Needs to support 3 GB of RAM, 3 or 4 slots preferrably so I don't have to spend more money).
One PCI-X 16 slot
Two PCI slots
Two 1.5 Gbs SATA ports
One IDE controller

Dang that's a bummer. I would DEMAND a refund from foxcon or who ever you bought that mobo from.
