Thanks to this thread I built my first computer.
Gigabyte P35 DS3L
OCZ 4gig (2x2 DDR2 PC6400)
Earthwatt 500 PSU
I had all the other items needed to hook this up to my 52 inch Samsung LTN5265 1080P TV as a HTPC.
I am having a problem, perhaps the more knowledgble members may be able to help a first time builder.
I realize the e8400 is a new CPU. The motherboard is rev 2. When I turn it on I only get to the LOGO SCREEN. I'm using both a USB and a PS/2 keyboard and nothing lets me get into the bios. I just sit at the Logo. The guys at Frys told me to reset the bios. I did. But this comp has never run, ever. I've read even older bios for this board will post.
So, my understanding is if I'm getting logo, the video card is working, the CPU is okay. I've unplugged my drives. I only have 1 2g ram installed.
Any thoughts? Gigabyte is closed for Chinese new year until next week.
PS I exchanged the Motherboard and get stuck at the Logo, so it isn't a bad board. Both keyboards work with my 5 year old Dell. i'll try and get a new keyboard today. but i don't think that is the problem. peace;-)
