    Default Re: X79 will not POST

    i traced the fault to the SATA connectors, if you plug a SATA II device into the SATA III socket then the board hangs and it hangs before it starts to give out any video signal, hope this may help some one else as it took me several hours to find it out and no help from AS Rock manual.

    regards Poppy Ann
