Asus Crosshair V mobo
FX-8120 CPU
8 Gb G.Skill DDR3-1866
Sapphire 3870x2
Air

Had it all up and running just fine till the other day doing some much needed maintenance, did a reboot and now nothing. The LED's along the "front" edge of the board are supposed to insinuate problems and light up if there is one. CPU LED stays lit all the time...
Cannot get into BIOS. I've cleared CMOS until I'm BLUE in the face.
Mobo came new from Ebay, CPU from the Egg.....

Open to ideas and suggestions...:pullhair:

edit: on closer inspection, I see that the lights are for "boot device, vga, dram, and cpu", the CPU light stays lit at all times and the DRAM light blinks twice and the rig shuts down...

edit #2: Pic of which CPU LED...

Problem is back only with the "Boot Device" LED...
Asus Crosshair V Formula mobo w/AMD FX-8120

Had it running on air in Mid Tower ATX case, pulled it and put in Full Tower ATX case on water. Now when I try to boot the 4 little Q-LED's along the front edge of the board flash in sequence as they should, but one stays lit. Boot Device. This is telling me that there is no boot device available. I've cleared CMOS, tried different hdd's, pulled out some hair, all to no avail...

Ideas or suggestions please??

Well, I have gotten it to POST and let me into BIOS where I selected to "load Optimized defaults", then set the time and date properly and switched from booting with PEG/PCI to PCI/PEG cause I'm running a PCI card in it...I couldn't get it to boot again using my 3870x2...Posted Image
Problem is that when I save settings and reboot, it doesn't reboot. Actually it seems to, but I get no video...and the dadgummed "Boot Device" LED lights up again solid.
I'm about to RMA this board to Asus in exchange for another if it doesn't straighten up...:pullhair:

Got it!! Gawd what a battle!! Just kept fighting with it, finally got it to use the 3870x2 and let me in BIOS, and then finally got it to set/reboot and actually start. I don't know that I did anything specific other than setting the UEFI BIOS to EZ Mode and hitting the O/C button of the BIOS.
Mobo has an O/C button too....hmmm.
