I just finished putting together my latest computer build. Everything to my knowledge is connect and fitting correctly. As of now I only have one stick of ramm in the A1 slot. I have disconnected the all-nonessential bios boot hardware. (eg. CD-Rom, HD, SSD) the motherboard is connected to the power correctly and the power is also connected to the video card along with it also being correctly installed. I am wanting to build a crossfire build but after the first boot failed I took out the 2nd card and just trying to boot via one (seems to be working) card. Also i made sure the CPU is also correctly installed.the back of the video card has two dvi connecters, and it comes with the dvi to vga adpter. The motherboard has a memok! button, I pushed this btton it goes into a check, i'm assuming, it states on the digital readout "tuning 1" all the way up to "tuning 25' after this completed it said fail. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.
