Hi everyone,
I just purchased a mobo from ebay, and I put together. All other components worked fine with my old mobo (GA EX58-extreme). It will not start - after the initial POST screen nothing happend.
Pressing DEL does not open the BIOS set-up utility.
This MB has 2 BIOS chips, but switching to the second one does not help. Sometimes it give me a redligth for the Cpu (980x) and sometimes for the boot device. What should I do now?

Hi J..

It would help if you could list all the parts installed in your system and especially the memory kit part number...

Hi J..

Apparently the system will boot... as you mention you get the Asus Logo.. is that correct..?  Its the fact that the keyboard doesn't work and the system won't boot into your Windows operating system..correct..?

Hi Ulrich,
I get the Asus logo, and the keyboard works, but I cannot get into the BIOS, and the post stops. After I hit DEL or TAB I get this page:

AMIBIOS(C) 2010 AMERICAN Megatrends , INC.
ASUS RAMPAGE III Extreme ACPI BIOS Revision 1102
CPU: Intel (R) Core (TM) I7 CPU x 980 @ 3.33 GHz
Speed: 3.33 GHz
Press F8 for BBS POPUP
Press ALT+F2 to execute ASUS EZ Flash 2
DDR-1333MHz
Initializing USB Controllers .. Done.
2048 MB OK




(C) American Megatrens, Inc.
65-1102-000001-00101111-092310-TYLERSBURG-A1545000-Y2XC

As you see, I tried to boot with one dimm and with one VGA card, I took it out form the case also. But nothing helped.
Any Ideas?

Hi J..

Are you using the boot drive form your old system.. a drive with Windows installed on it...?  I 'think' that is probably what you are doing and if so, then you may be running into massive driver confusion..  The OS would be set up for the old board.. its driver pointers looking for the old hardware addresses.. which don't make any sense as all the addresses have changed.

Yes, of course. I use the same ssd, but the problem is that I cannot reach the OS, I could not even reach the BIOS. I have a short beep, when I start - according to the manul it means everything is Ok (CPU, RAM, VGA), then the post stops and I can only use CTRL+ALT+De, to restart.  I took some pictures, I wish I could attach to this forum post, but I cannot see any possibility. It makes me a headache. I will try to put my old I7 920, and see what is going on, tomorrow. That CPU works perfectly, as also the other components.
I just found something: I exactly have the same problem:

Hi J..

Stick you Windows 7 disk in the optical drive .. restart and tap F8 and select the optical drive..  Then see if you can do a Startup Repair...
