Component Upgrade = No boot

  bazwaterboy 16:07 22 Dec 2008

Hi after saving for 6 months without a PC i finally bit the bullet and bought the bits I wanted.

My old CPU - AMD Athlon 64 6000+
Old GFX Cards - x2 Radeon HD 2600 512mb

CPU - AMD Phenom x4 9950 black edition
GFX Cards - X2 Gigabyte Radeon HD 4650 1GB

My motherboard is unchanged - Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H
Running a 700w PSU

After installing my new parts and clearing CMOS (battery method as no jumper of MOBO) the PC does not boot. No post screen and no display signal. I have unplugged HDD and DVD drives and the system still doesnt boot.

My symptoms are PSU fan runs but no LED`s, Case fan Runs, CPU fan runs but not full speed, GPU fans run and the HDD (front LED) light flickers constantly and a clicking noise then comes from inside the case. No Post Screen and No Beeps with or without RAM.

Please help as I`ve spent alot of money to find the stuff dont work.

I presume the Phenom 9950 isnt compatable with my Mobo.

Any ideas?
