    Beep and nothing [motherboard and cpu]

    Ok so I'm building my mom's business computer and everything works, I found the PSU cord wasn't 100% plugged in fixed that I booted once bios she beeped and now I got nothing. I reset cmos and power but still nothing. I got a lemon didn't I?

    I'll try a new battery too but this really sucks and I can't afford much down time in this build.

    Ok it might be the PSU or Motherboard. The CPU has to be ok. I just hope I don't have to report the load as damaged on monday.

    Using the onboard GPU atm. the card has no 6-pin

    I did accidentally use one of the usb headers for front panel but corrected that.

    I'm like why are my leds dim and no boot, I found the issue and corrected, I went to bed with it off and unplugged and came to this; this morning. she beeped, no KB flash [Num, Caps, Scroll], nothing just a beep and fail [locked up].

    If the psu has a voltage switch is it set correctly?

    Change out the psu power cord.....

    All cables on the motherboard correct?

    Bad wall plug?

    Try different psu....if one is handy....

    Glad it's sorted out...are you going to RMA the board?

    Investigating further proved that it was not the MB at fault but rather a stick of ram. So we're gonna RMA the ram kit for a good one.

    MSI makes interesting MBs but I want to try Gigabyte sometime I hear they build first class boards.

    ASUS I hear makes mean monitors that make jaws drop but they aren't so hot in the MB department esp with the EVO line.

I have installed windows 8 using a upgrade from microsoft, I am looking into changing the motherboard to support more RAM and i've read that windows 8 is tied to the motherboard. Is there a way to transfer my licence to the new motherboard, I don't mind doing a fresh install.
