    Hi guys,

    Just bought this combination of mobo and cpu, and on boot i get "4 short beeps" and no display on integrated vga...

    tried re-seating ram, different ram, different psu, no hdds/opticals, no expansion cards.... all get same result?

    that leaves cpu? guy who sold it to me said may need to FLASH bios for this to work with 3rd gen intel cpus.. but i can't even get to bios?

    is this the problem or what you reckon?

    thanks

    This^...You could buy a cheap Pentium G6xx to flash the bios...Or buy a new mobo...

    Take the mobo to nearest pc shop and tell them to flash bios for u. They have cpu lying in stock. Easy and cheap.
