Anyone have any experience with Foxconn WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS Motherboard?

Hello,
Before I RMA the above motherboard, I wonder if anyone has had any
experience with installing it. I'm replacing an ASUS A8V Deluxe
motherboard with the Foxconn WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS Motherboard, and
when I do, I don't get a post of the Bios, and the PC Speaker does not
even beep, and no video.

On the A8V, I was using a Geforce 5700 LE, but the Foxconn has a PCI
Express slot for video, and integrated video. For the moment, I don't
have a PCI Express video card, and I was hoping to use the integrated
video until I can obtain one.

CPU : AMD64 3400+
RAM : 2Gb (4 512MB sticks 3200 DDR)
HD : 1 120GB Ide, and 1 300Gb SATA
DVD : Sony DVD
Power Supply: Antec TruePower 430 Watts

One thing I did notice is that if I have the DVD drive attached to the
seondary IDE controller, I can't even press the eject button to open the
drive. If, however, I disconnect the cable from the motherboard, and
just have the power cable to the drive, I can open the door.

Also, the hard drive LED light stays on constantly, but the power led
does not come on at all. As I said, there are no beeps whatsoever..


Any help would be appreciate

Thanks
Phillip

That's usually what happens when the drive cable is on wrong. Try reversing
it.

You should get it down to a bare minimum. All you need to POST is
the motherboard, CPU, RAM and video. Disconnect all drive cables
and all memory modules except one. Experiment with different memory
sockets as well.
