And the damn thing doesn't work. Lights blink, fans spin, no video output and no post beeps. The mouse lights up but the keyboard doesn't.
This isn't my first rodeo, I managed to get the last system I scratch built up to installing the OS before I hit any issues. I can usually make it to the post code and work it out from there. I'm no master, but not a rookie either and this has me completely frustrated. The last time I had a "no reaction" was years ago when I hugged up the CPU install (I hate that little lever.) and it worked great when I figured it out. I've run the gamut of troubleshooting and the only thing I haven't done is clear the CMOS settings... and I didn't do it because I don't have the parts. Yeah, missing the little black nobbly thing to put on the jumper pins.
So now I got nothing but the netbook and no idea what to do next.
Gigabyte 880gm-d2h rev 3.1 mobo, AMD FX6100 chip, ripjaw DDR3 ram 1600, and a seagate 1.5TB drive...
Little help please?

Also, try excluding a bad stick of RAM or bad RAM slot. Take all but one stick out and see if it will POST. Shut down and move it to the next slot. Repeat for all of your sticks to see if a stick or slot is bad. Also, make sure you have them slotted according to your motherboard's recommendations. Some are super-picky and simply will not POST if the slots aren't filled correctly.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Newegg accepted the RMA, the chip and board are going back. Right now, I am unsure as to whether their getting refunded or replaced, but whatever, I ain't paying for dead tech. This ain't fallout.
