Okay… So I purchased two B250 MotherBoards for two rigs
Here is the lineup:
i5-7400 CPU - Verified it is compatible with ASUS via their FAQ.
Memory is DDR4 2400 Hz
I have connected the PS to MB connector “A”
CPU power is connected on the MB
Hooked up a SATA SSD.
Upon power-up, the CPU cooler fan starts up and then nothing. No BIOS no post. Just a blank screen and the monitor shifts to another display due to no signal.
Although this CPU has onboard graphics, I tried out a GPU in the PCIe X16 slot. Same result.
So I either have two bad motherboards, new from ASUS, or I am missing something?
