    Hi I recently had to replace my motherboard as it apparently died. I have replaced with a new on and cannot seem to get “signal” to any of my monitors. This makes it impossible to get to bios and start the process of getting my computer ready for use.

    Specs:

    Mobo: Asus maximums hero 8
    Cpu: i8-6700k
    Gpu: evga gtx1070 founders edition
    Ram: rip jaw ddr4 32gb
    Assortment of Hdds and ssds


    Things tried:
    -cmos reset
    -new cables internally and externally
    - startup with no gpu
    -startup with 1 stick of ram
    - plugging into mobo and into gpu
    - triple checking everything is plugged in


    Weirdest part is everything seems to be working. Everything is lit, I can hear the hdd working and mobo is showing Q code 29 which I can’t find in the manual. Any help would be appreciated as it’s been months of computer issues already and I’m at my wits end

    Take it back down to a barebones setup out on a table. Nothing but:

    Motherboard (on a non-conductive surface),
    CPU (w/heatsink),
    RAM,
    PSU,
    keyboard, video and mouse.

    Now see if it will boot into the BIOS. If not, try different PSU and/or RAM. Once you do get into the BIOS, reset the BIOS to factory default.

    Now try running an Operating System (*nix) from a bootable USB flash drive. Exercise it some (web) and then leave it running overnight.

    If it's still where you left it the night before, power down, hook up your drive with Windows on it and try the same, (exercise it, web, games, whatever), and leave it running overnight.

    If it's fine the next morning, power down and reassemble everything back in the case. As you continue beyond the bare minimum though, only add one or two pieces of hardware at a time and then test to make sure what was added isn't causing problems. You get the idea ...
