A LED display lies atop the HDMI port allowing you to monitor the status of the motherboard

I take it, you mean the LED on the left here ? (http://www.motherboards.org/imageview.html?i=/images/mobot/motherboards/10469_bpio.jpg)

Go to the site and download the manual

If you brought the mobo, it should have come with the manual

Well 61 must mean everything is OK, if youre using it now.

Its when it says something else you have to worry.

hey what if the debug lcd doesnt show anything??

im in the process of building 3 identical pcs, still stuck on the first one though..

Installed mobo/cpu + cpu cooler and sata hdd, using onboard gfx, but cant seem to get her to come alive??? no beeps or error messages, just no signal on my monitor... now i do have lights on the motherboard , a PWR_LED and the lights for the DIMM slots...

any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!! thank you!

Have you plugged in the small square 12V plug to the mobo?

ahhh gary67, thank you!
after double and tripple checking EVERYTHING, i overlooked that connector as i thought it was only for PCI-e, which i am wrong!

again, thanks for the simple words of wisdom :)
greatly appreciated, now im moving onto the next problem! (actually its going great so far now (touch wood) loading up windows now!)

Great I love it when a plan comes together, it's often the simple things we forget to do that make the difference.
