This is an email I sent to the ASRock motherboard company's support email address. My motherboard will power my heatsink fan, my led's, the powerbutton, and even my SSD. I am getting no output from the HDMI or VGA slots though, and if no memory is installed I get no error beeps from my motherboard. I have taken the battery out overnight, and shorted the CMOS. Any help on what I'm missing?
"Motherboard : FM2+a88x- ITX+ APU: A10-7870k Quad-Core, integrated graphics CPU from AMD Memory: 12gb (8 + 4) GSkill 1600 Video Card: Integrated on CPU Operating System: none yet Hard Drive : Silicon Power 250gb Bios : 2.50
When I have every single cord plugged in and ram modules in (I've tried just one module in each slot) the cpu heatsink fan will spin and the power supply fan will spin. The motherboard gives no beeps when memory is not in, and I have the speaker plugged in. I've reseated everything three times, but I get no video output. I've used HDMI and VGA. Is it possible that I get no beep codes because the APU isn't directly supported until bios 3.0? If so can ASRock update my bios due to the fact that I can't boot to flash it? Any insight would be extremely helpful!"
