I have a fatality board, anyone with it would probably understand the post LED numbers. I turn on the power, and watch the post code, it hits C1, then f1, then C1 again, and halts at 04. All the fans run, except the chipset fan, and my graphics card does not seem to turn on (the fan just stays idle). I used the graphics card in my previous system, so it has worked.

Athlon 64 3200+ winnie
AN8 Fatality
Ultra XConnect Power Supply [500 watt, 38 amps on 12v, basically it has the requirements]
Sapphire X850XT PCI-e
Corsair Value Select RAM (2x512 in DIMM 1/2]
WDRaptor 74gb
LG DVD/CD-RW
Mitsumi Floppy
Zalman Copper CPU-HSF
2x80mm, 2x120mm fans
Front USB 2.0

I have tested the RAM individually (one at a time, different dimms). I have removed the sound card Abit gave me, I have tried disconnecting the floppy and dvd drives, seperately, I have tried only running bare essentials, etc.

The only new thing here is the board, everything else has run on a Chaintech VNF4 Ultra (you can see why I switched, that board was crap).

Please, give me as many suggestions as possible for how to figure out the problem. I suspect it may be the video card, as the fan does not start, but then again neither do the RAM/chipset fans. I have checked for shorts but there are none that I can see on the board...but, please any suggestions and help!

Thanks in advance!

When I remove the video card, the LED goes through the post and ends with FF (for those w/o the Fatality this means post was successful), but obviously I can't see crap. Well, when I put it in, it stops about 1/4 of the way through, sometimes gets a bit faster without the 6-pin pci-e power connector.

So is my video card fried?

If you know the graphics card works, that suggests that it isn't securely in the PCI-E slot, or that your motherboard has a bad PCI-E slot.
