Barebones Failure x2

  1. Hello everyone, im not my 2nd bare bones from tiger direct. My first consisted of:

    THERMALTAKE Soprano RS 101 ATX Case Black w/Window
    Seagate 500GB Serial ATA HD 7200/32MB/SATA-3G
    Power Up 800w Power Supply w/2 80mm/Blue
    OCZ SLI 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz (2x1024MB)
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 CPU Black Edition
    Asus M2N-SLI nForce 560 Socket AM2 Motherboard

    to run

    PNY GeForce XLR8 9800 GX2 1GB PCIe w/Dual Link DVI.

    after 3 or 4 days we could never get the motherboard to boot, no led, no sound, nothing, and after alot of looking around i found that quite a few other people who had bought that barebones package had the same issue so i decided to return the motherboard, CPU, and ram.

    next from tiger i ordered:

    XFX GeForce 8200 MCP Socket AM2+ Motherboard
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 CPU Black Edition
    OCZ SLI 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz (2x1024MB)

    to go with everything i kept. it has onboard graphics so i left the 9800 out until i can get the PC set up. Ive cleared the CMOS, tried useing the memory sticks in all the configurations possible (single and dual channel). tested the power suppy and its working like it should. the LEDs on the motherboard work and the only response ive gotten was the keyboard lights will flash for a split second then nothing and i never get signal to the moniter

    Definately sounds like a hardware issue, like PowerSupply or faulty CPU or something
    If you have just purchased this (again) from Tigerdirect (or whatever their name is) then guess what? Return under warranty (again)
