    Alright well I currently was going to be building a computer..
    But sadly.. I think this motherboard is dead?

    My Motherboard!

    It was a build for a friend, figured this board would be just fine, to power my Athlon II x4 635..Obviously

    But I poppped in the Geforce 9400 Gt and (the board has no onboard video) I turned the computer on, and it beeps 1 long beep and 2 short beeps..which to Gigabyte, converts to a VIDEO ERROR. Meaning it cant find the video card, or the monitor isnt plugged in. It was plugged in, the card was snapped down tight and firm..tested in my computer and worked fine..and it just wont work.

    Any ideas guys?
    The power supply in there (im dumb..) doesn't have an 8pin for the AMD Board..But has a 4. I understand it works fine if you use 4pin though..as I've done it before, and the manual says its fine, but im still getting this issue.

    Any ideas? Please? I dont want to RMA this board.
