Brand new system,
Motherboard powers on
when powered on the MB immediately displays q-code "8" the second number display is not lit.
I've flashed to the latest BIOS from the website "0509" naming the file C7HWifi which seemed to go smoothly.
I removed all external devices,
I've re-seated the RAM and CPU,
I have a PCI hardrive seated, but no SAS ports in use, and I've removed the Graphics card.
I've pressed the CMOS reset button.
I have not attempted to pull the battery yet.
I have not replaced the CPU power cable, thinking of trying that next.
Any other things I should try? Before moving to RMA/pay a professional to find the issue?
