Also, do you have a readout error code on the main board led display that could help you troubleshoot?

There is a main board led display, and I think it says 85, but I don't know what that means.

Also, I saw on certain ASROCK PCIE16x connectors that they do not have automatic spring-lock for cards, but you have to slide the lock guards manually to lock the card in the connector.

Hi, thanks for your help! This is in fact the case, there is a thing that I slide to lock the card in, but after I insert the card and lock it, it is still very wobbly and if I pull the side of the card (on the left side, away from the slide) I can pull it out easily. I don't know if this is just how it's made or if I didn't put it in correctly.

Hi Guys,

I finally got the time to put together my rig and I have been having problems where I get a black screen.

This is what I'm running:

   ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD
   AMD Sempron 140
   2GB DDR3
   CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W, 80 PLUS Certified
   2x Sapphire Radeon HD 5830 1GB XTREME

I made sure I plugged in the 2x 6-pin connectors for the video card, plugged in the 24-pin connector, and also the 8-pin connector into the motherboard.

I am trying to boot off of my USB stick and use linuxcoin.

Even without the USB, shouldn't I be able to access the bios? I am not even getting anything to show up on the screen. My cpu and video card's fans are spinning, but nothing is showing up on the screen... I am using just a basic dvi monitor. I tried to only use one video card to see if one was broken, but it still didn't work.

Some extra questions I had also:
When I built a computer in the past, when I stick the my video card into the PCI-E slot I hear a click, but on this motherboard I don't so I'm unsure if I put it in all the way (it's easy to move around in the slot/not very sturdy).

don't mine with hopes to get rich quick, it's ok if you decide to mine as a hobby/for fun...

No big deal, it'll rally at some point, not like you depend on the money you get from selling your BTC to survive anyways, right?

exactly! hold to win  Smiley
