Not sure why im always asked thay question, but naturally its connected. It's actually an 8pin on this board. All connections are made properly and fans are spinning.
Yep all lights are on.Are the keyboard lights kicking on, like the numlock when you power it on? and if you are using a optical laser mouse do they get power?
Don't see any broken pins.Remove the chip from the new board, and check for bent pins in the socket.
The Dynex only has a 4pin, I returned it. But my main PSU has a 4pin and 8pin cpu/mobo power connector. It also comes with 1x6pin and 1x6+2pin VGA connector that clearly state pci-e on them and their red and modular. The 4/8pin for the mobo are black, not modular and say CPU on them. So I know I have the right connectors connected.ok your psu has only 1x4 wire then plug it in the other half, should have a psu that supprts 8 EATX12v
Don't mix PCI-e with EATX12v
Ya, I had to push it quite harder than most typical boards. But this still was not this issue, since even if there was no ram it would still post.just curious... did you push the ram into the socket... sooo hard? on my asus x58 sabertooth, i had to press them so hard...
thats only if running SLI or cross-fire set-up, need to have moniter in primary card (usally closest to cpu)Maybe its a video feed issue. If you are not getting any beeps, fans are all spinning up, and keyboard mouse are powering up, it just sounds like the video signal is not getting to your monitor.
Try another port on your video card, check the cables, make sure you monitor's input is set correctly. Try settings it again eventhough it may already be on the right settings.
