    Default GA-MA790FXT-UD5P - Possible BIOS Issue?

    Hi! First time poster here, so let me start off by saying that this is my very first time building a computer. Anyways, after turning the computer on, the fans run, as well as LED lights. However, the monitor will not display anything at all, and the keyboard is unresponsive; it won't even show the splash logo or anything. I know the monitor isn't defective as it worked hours before. No beep codes either.

    What I've already tried:

    • Clearing CMOS
    • Moving around RAM, removing RAM
    • Checking wire connections
    • Switching monitor ports
    • Switching PCI slots

    A friend suggested that a BIOS flash may be necessary because the CPU I am using is a AMD Phenom II x6 1090T Black Edition; would this be the case?

    Also, my build if it's relevant:

    • Case: InWin Maelstrom
    • CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1090T Black Edition
    • PSU: InWin Commander 750W
    • Graphics Card: HIS Radeon HD 6870 1 GB
    • Cooling: CoolIT Liquid Cooling E.C.O
    • RAM: Kingston HyperX DDR3 4GB
    • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P
    • Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200.12

    Thanks in advance!

    seemslike the bios that came with the mb is old and wont support the 6core chip,you need to update the bios to the latest one which will support the 6core but for that you would need an older 4 core chip to flash with,then after flashing put in the 6core chip and it should boot up,its the same thing for the intel 6cores

    Alright, hopefully the CPU switch will work!

    Update, I put in the quad-core chip, absolutely no difference. This time though, I can't seem to even turn off the computer, I have to unplug the power cord. Any ideas?

    Tried CMOS clearing again, still nothing, could be a faulty motherboard, but the previous owner is positive it worked.

    I would run a diagnostic test on the hard drive.
    MHDD 4.6
    Download MHDD 4.6 Free - MHDD is the most popular freeware application for low-level HDD diagnostics - Softpedia

    I see reviewer ratings on the Seagate drive at Newegg at only 54% for highest rating.

    Does it start with nothing connected?

    try the board outside of the case and off the motherboard tray, on a wooden table or cardboard box, and then connect only the CPU and heatsink, one stick of memory, and the graphics card and see if it will start.

    Also, can you test the graphics card in another system to be sure it is working properly?

    I took it out and put it on bubblewrap and an anti-static sheet. Only put on the motherboard, the CPU, cooler, and PSU. When I press on, it beeps once every five seconds; non-stop I believe. Insert RAM, the beeps disappeared. Reseated RAM in varying slots, same effect. Inserted graphics card, still no beeps. Left the graphics card, but removed the RAM, same beeps, once every five seconds.

    Don't have any way of testing the card, unfortunately.

    Anti-Static sheet it to keep static out of the wrapper, so static actually builds up on the outside of it, so that is not good.

    That is why I suggested a wooden table or cardboard box, just FYI.

    It could be the card, try to find a friend that will let you come over and test with their PC or see if you can test at work maybe.
