new mobo... no POST
i know this hardware used to work because when i first purchased it i had it installed and working. however, i had to take out the new hardware and put in my old hardware to reinstall windows (long story, had to get rid of my raid array).
my new hardware is an Asus a8v mobo, a venice chip, and matching 2x 512 MB corsair memory chips.
i put my new hardware back in but its not posting anymore. i read through these forums a bit and found some suggestions. i tried:
took motherboard out completely and reseated it
took off un-needed accesories (sound card)
i also dropped out 1 memory chip
i also ensured that all the cables are plugged in properly including the 4 pin CPU molex. my video card has a power cable too, and i swapped it with another cable (different line) to make sure it was getting power.
so at this point im getting no feed to the monitor. i can only assume it isn't POSTing, but of course i can't see anything...
any ideas what the problem might be or what i might try? im going to put the old mobo back but im going to use my new memory (instead of the old) to make sure its working. will update shortly.
