I just bought the following system:
- SG41J1 Plus V2
- 2x 4GB DDR3-1066 modules
- Intel Duo Processor E8500
(HDD and DVD Rom probably not the cause for the issue!?)
I plugged in everything and powered up the system - and it stays just pitch black. Monitor (connected to the onboard VGA port) says "no signal" and goes to standby. I have tried to swap the memory modules, put in just one, swapped that again, but no luck so far.
Checked this post
but since the CPU does not have PINs anymore ;)
Also checked this post
=> RAM has been swapped
=> other components (HDD) do get power as they start spinning. No power as it seems for e.g. keyboard
=> monitor is ok, works fine on a different PC
=> cannot swap CPU
So far I am pretty much lost. It's not the first system I ran into problems with when putting them together, but the first one I am stuck at this early point in time. So any help would be appreciated!!
