    No, it's not connected anymore to the motherboard tray, it's just the motherboard, lying on it's own foil with some of the protective soft thing inside the bag.

    I'll check the CPU once more for broken pins, I hope the cooling paste doenst get screwed...

    I'll do the reset and then with 2 dimms, but I already tried removing the battery for a whole night, but it didn't work....my local computer store was told (by gigabyte, to try to boot with the battery upside down, but that didn't work either...)..

    Cheerz,

    EDIT: looked at some pictures, my socket seems to be perfectly ok...

    What type of Foil is this? I suggest you put the board on a wooden table or cardboard box to be sure. The design of ESD bags is to keep static collected on the Outside of the bag, away from the inside. So it is not always safe to put a board on a ESD Bag

    Yes about the pins, sorry, they are all actually Bent. You just wanted to look for ones that are possibly bent incorrectly.

    It sounds like you may need to RMA your board

    I also do not suggest putting in a battery backwards as that may fry your battery, I cannot believe they suggested that to you. Although it would be the same as booting without a battery it could also harm your board or battery. I doubt Gigabyte suggested this to your supplier at all

    I brought it back to the shop, there, they told me that only 3 out of 5 of the gigabyte boards work, they gave me another one and it works perfectly....to all those who have same problem, just RMA the stupid board and ask a new one...if it doesn't work either, get yourself an ASUS :)...anyway, thanx for all the suggestions and replies, I really appreciate the effort, the board was just DOA....

    Thanx

    Ahh, great to hear you have a working board now!!

    3 out of 5 working boards, what did you mean by that? Did you have 5 of them?

    @Skratch

    Hey I was having the exact same problem.
    Went back to the store and exchanged it for Asus, Couldn't get OSX to run on Asus.
    Took it back to get EX58-UD3R a second chance. Didn't work again.
    I though what are the odd i got 2 bad Mobo, so i dried attaching all the power cables from my old Vaio on to mobo and it powered up no problem.
    I figure maybe it can be picky or sensative to PSU, try getting a new power supply unit thats how i fixed it


    -Gygabyte EX58-UD3R
    -i7 920
    -EVGA 9800 GTX
    -Kingston 1333 DDR3
