    GOT IT! Check the CMOS config jumper. Pins 1-2 are normal. Pins 2-3 clears and system does not boot. Absence of jumper also cause the same problem. Happened with me. Check.

    Hi, by cmos config. I presume its the clear RTC jumpers.
    I re-checked and it was in the correct position, I then reset the jumpers , removed battery and reset it . but still the same effect.
    shorting green and black wire, fans on and cpu led on. ( I tried with cpu fitted and not fitted)

    Cmos chip arrived,

    If there's a mem OK button on the board, start the board by pressing and holding it. Keep everything connected. See what happens.
    Also, you can donate the board to me. I have some spare boards to fix if I get spares. I will pay the shipping + a small amount maybe if you want. :)

    Same procedure as above,

    • Insert new chip
    • Reset CMOS
    • Reinsert CPU
    • Insert ram
    • Try to start the board without any add ons pinned on
    • Listen for beeps from PC speaker and find the error code

    In 99% of the cases like this its a faulty CPU or a faulty board. If this procedure doesn't help, RMA it. Your serial number should be located on the mobo somewhere. Remember that it has 10 digits usually and its tricky to find :D

    Don't give up easily, if it looks new then it probably is. But as you mentioned u got a full refund without a word and u get to keep the board, it's fishy :D

    Think autobot it :)
