    Default Cannot get EP45-UD3R to post

    Hello all. After perusing the gigabyte section for a suitable answer, I have found none, so I come to you bearing my woes. I built a semi new system consisting of:

    E7300
    EP45-UD3R
    OCZ Reaper 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2-800 4-4-4-12
    Sapphire HD4870 512MB
    Corsair HX520 520w modular PSU

    the problem is I cant get to the bios at all. no beeps, and the CPU power phase light is in full bloom (all lights lit up) constantly. I dont know what to do, I've tried only using one stick in each slot, using only required hardware (cpu/ram/gpu only) and still no luck. I don't know whether I got a bad board or if one of my other components, halp.

    Well you could go to phase 3 of non posting right away.
    Take the mbrd out of the case connect everything up n test it that way(for possible shorts from the mbrd back against the case panel).

    Doing this will make you redo all the connections again anyway.

    If that solves it maybe cut a sheet of thin soft cardboard and place it behind the mbrd before remounting it .Take mbrd off again see if there are any little indentations in the cardboard where it may have been crushed between the mbrd and the case panel.

    Then you could put a suitable non conductive material behind the mbrd such as the cardboard itself or psychos suggestion of using the sponge that comes in the mbrd box.

    If its not that then you are on to resetting the cmos either by turning off pc and hitting the psu switch to off to clear residual current for say 15 min/shorting out the cmos jumper/or taking out the cmos battery.
    And try again

    There is also the amazing semi secret Lsdmeasap's board recovery method ,which i never bothered to link in favorites,but its in this forum somewhere in the last 6 mnths! but thats a last resort if youre sure its the board thats the problem.

    stage 2 is really testing components other than the board ..other memory if you have it ,diff gx card/diff psu/or different cpu even but you may not have those so hopefully one of the other things will work.

    Your on standard intel cpu heatsink? make sure its seated properly as cpu will get heated up very fast n auto cut out if it isnt.
