Hello, I just got everything in my case. New parts. I got the Asus M4A78LT-M motherboard and AMD Phenom II x4 3.2 955 am3 cpu. I got everything together and booted it one time, it started just fine. I went into bios to change device to usb thumb drive, bc it has my OS on it. I read that the mboard comes only working with 3 cores. I saw the setting under advanced-cpu and changed to all cores, while i was in the process of changing boot priority. Rebooted to a blank screen and unable to get in bios.
I tried clearing the CMOS data by turning off, unplugging, and moving the clrtc jumper. Also did the same and removing the battery. And then the ram. Then I tried unplugging all components(cd and br rom) & hd. To no avail. I also tried (with cdrom only as master) putting in the motherboard dvd to see if it would auto fix. Didn't work. I even d/l'ed the initial bios file from Asus and put on USB drive put in and turned on still didnt work.
