    Default Problems EP45-UD3P

    I just tried an new build with the following:
    EP45-UDP3 Mobod
    Q9550 Intel Processor
    4 X 2GB Corsair XMS - 1066 RAM
    NVIDIA 9800GTX

    My problem is that the BIOS never comes up. I also get no beeps through the speaker. I am getting power to everything, graphic cards fans spin up, I also get all the PANEL LEDs lighting on the mother board. I have tried different ram, different graphics card, even a different processor and the BIOS still does not come up. Also the CPU FAN does not spin??? If I plug it in to the SYS 2 FAN it spins non-stop.

    Any one have any ideas, I am at a loss????

    1) Remove your motherboard from the computer case and set the mobo next to the computer case with the mobo sitting on a cardboard box or stack of books.
    2) Try booting with only one memory module in slot #1. If this doesn't work, try booting in one of the remaining memory slots.
    3) Try with another speaker hooked up to your mobo.
    4) Try the suggestions in this post using a minimalist mobo setup.

    I am using a Thermaltake Black Widow 550W.

    I also noticed something. Does this motherboard require the 8pin 12V to operate correctly???

    I have tried all the things I did above with the MOBO on a static resistant pad.

    I am using the Intel supplied fan.

    An 8-pin ATX12V connector is recommended, but your system will probably work with a 4-pin connection.
    I don't know if your video card "requires" the 8-pin ATX12V mobo connector.
    Had any progress with the minimalist setup?
