    Default Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 not running POSTing screen

    I'm building a new pc with this Gigabyte motherboard(GA-MA790FX-DQ6). My spec :
    AMD Phenom 9850 Black Edition Quad-Core 2.5GHz
    THERMALTAKE W0132RU 1000W MODULARIZED ATX CROSSFIRE ATI
    New Corsair Dominator 4GB (2GBx2) DDR2 1066 with Fan
    Visiontek HD 3870 X2 Oc Edition
    Western Digital RaptorŪ X 150GB/16MB Cache/10,000RPM SATA
    Thermaltake water cooler bigwater 760i

    I connect all the parts and wires and turn on the power nothing comes up on my monitor The motherboard doesn't power up to POST screen!! It's a new
    pc. When i turn on the power, cpu is working and
    everythingelse but Post screen doesn't comes up. Nothing
    comes up on my monitor. I took out the ram and there is no
    beep sound from the motherboard! Do i have to reset the
    Bios? I also want to know if this graphics card(Visiontek
    Radeon HD 3870 X2 Overclocked Edition)compatible with this
    GA-MA790FX-DQ6! Also on the mobo's Chassis intrusion header
    doesn't have a cap on? Does it suppose to have a cap on? Is
    it the 4Gb ram(New Corsair Dominator 4GB (2GBx2) DDR2 1066
    with Fan ) that i have cause the motherboard not POSTing? Does the
    all the fan headers(cpu_fan,sys_fan1,sys_fan2,power_fan)
    have to be plugged in?
    Well I thought it was problem with graphic card so i tried
    it with another card which is Radeon HD3650 512MB DDR2.
    Doesn't work either! Nothing comes up on my monitor not even
    Power-On Self-Test (POST) There isn't any beep sound either!
    Need help please!

    Well cpu fan is the only one that HAS to be plugged in. Can you test those components in a different system? The graphics card and ram mainly is what I am asking

    Can you get into the BIOS? And do you have a case speaker plugged in at all? If not there wont be any beeps until you do, which I suggest you get they are cheap you can get one on ebay if you want. Or you could cut up some old heaphones or something like that and hook up, if you know how to make some wires to properly plug it in, if not you will need to buy one.

    If you can get in the BIOS let me know, because with 2X2Gb ram you need to make some changes for it to run. You could also try with just one stick in slot one to see for now if that helps, if nothing I would say to check the ram on another system and graphics card to be sure they are ok. Then we will go from there

    Well i took out all the wires and just cpu and the internal

    speakers then plug in the 8pin ATX and 24pin from psu. Power

    it on then wait for the beep sound but No!! Also i did reset

    the bios but nothing happened. So i figured something is

    wrong either with the cpu or mobo. I went out to get another

    mobo and do that again but no beep sound! It just not going

    to POST screen with two mobo. It probably might be a

    defective cpu!! So i'm gonna sent back the cpu and get a new

    one! :(

    Yeah sounds that way then. Unless your board needs a BIOS newer then those have for that CPU, which you would need a older CPU to find out

    Hi

    Had the same issue!!!!!!!!! Used two high end video cards ATI X1950XTX and BFG 8800GTX OC and two Phenom cpus 9500 and 9850 with the results you are experiencing. I know Gigabyte says you need the most recent bios for the 9850, but my DS5 found it with an earlier bios. I am returning mine for a full refund, I figured out tearing down and reuilding my system 4 times is enough.

    Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!
