No Video Tempest i5000PX (S5380) BX805565160P

Hello,
I'm building a computer for work and using the S5380 with the BX805565160P CPU and a MS-4600-010 power supply - the RAM/etc is all correct - i know this because we've built many of these systems - so CPU/MoBo/RAM - all checks out - the ONLY thing i can think of now is that the power supply isn't right....

it's a MS-4600-010 - and it says LGA775 - and this CPU is LGA771 - is that the problem?

Let me know if you have any other suggestions before i go down the power supply road.

Everything powers up - just no video

Thanks

The psu should be fine, do you get beep codes with the ram removed? Make sure a system speaker is pluggedinto the speaker pins as motherboard doesn't appear to have an onboard speaker.

Do all systems have a speaker?  I'm not seeing anything on the MoBo or inside the tower

the LED indicator says "FF" - i tried googling this already and using the manual to diagnose it but i can't seem to find what "FF" means

FF can indicate bios handing over to the os, or it could be a faulty motherboard. Remove the ram and see if the diag code changes.

It was the memory!  I'm always used to the 1st memory slot being the highest on the board - well on this board apparently i need to put the memory in starting at the bottom - always something simple.

Ok - new problem though - the DVD Rom drive is not being detected so i cant install an OS

IDE cables are in correctly and i've used 3 different ones - i've also tried 2 DVD roms - one which i know works from another PC.

Any suggestions?
