    Hi all

    having a bit of bother with the board i recentlybought. Asus Sabertooth P67 B3

    decided to build up my system today knowing I would have to flash to the latest BIOS so my i5 Ivybridge would work.

    Built it up with a Celeron and 1333 RAM. Plus an old pcie graphics card.

    I have it built up out of the case. When I turn it on I dont see owt on the monitor. i have tried two cards in both slots but get nowt at all on sceen.

    going barmy here thinking I may have bought a dud board.

    Any ideas...PLEASE...

    I have just tested all the same bits including the pcie graphics card on a socket 1155 H61 Asus board B8H61 MX.
    everything is working fine.

    So it seems i have made a bad buy and bought a dud.....

    swearing right now....

    fool...

    sorry to hear it tnx :hmm: Does it have onboard graphics or auto feature for video in bios? Have you done bios mod? or tried reverting to previous known good bios for video?

    Edit: oh. I see is UEFI:Lighten:

    what are the beep codes ? for instance does it beep with no ram inserted?

    also have you cleared cmos by taking out battery ? and then tried to boot

    thanks for this info...

    NO BEEPS what so ever !!!

    Yes i cleared CMOS. No difference.

    as for that checklist. Yep went through all of that.

    had two totally different cpu's. An i3 sandybridge and a Celeron. Both are compatable with my Sabertooth and the Sandybridge shows it would work on the lowest BIOS version.
    Not bothered trying my i5 Ivybridge.

    I dont know what else to try to be honest. Maybe the seller might get back to me..Hopefully

    No beeps is not good .. I hope the seller is an honest person .. The board itself is a good choice .. maybe Asus has a basic fee for repair if you don't have original receipt or maybe you can get the receipt from the seller .. I wish you the best on this mate :)

    I have been looking through my ebay messages I sent to the seller regarding the board before i bought it.
    I was asking several questions making sure this was the board for me.
    One of his replies clinched it.
    I quote


    Been doing a live chat with ebay and it has been too long since the auction ended for any sort of dispute to be made.

    Still not holding my breath though..

    check cpu pins, maybe some of them are deformed or broken(you need magnifying glass for that, or microscope if you have one messing around, 10-20x zoom should be enough)
    check ram pins, then clean golden pins on ram itself with cloth and do the same on cpu(not pins on mobo, you will possibly just broke them)
    Also when you checked everything on another mobo I hope you did it in the same PC case, otherwise may be PSU.
    If none of above, your mobo is bricked.
