Windows 7: MINI ITX Build VERY Strange problems

Layback, you're right, the boy is mixing Radeon with NVidia, for starters, which is why I've avoided the 'A' series. Still build with AMD, I just don't buy the 'A' series. The Radeon is built-in to the A-series.
AMD A-Series APU Processors

2008 was the last time I had a build fire up without seeing the bios.
Turned out that the now out-of-business Ram vendor sold me two sticks
out of four that were no more useful than carpenter's nails. ie dead.

What bios thing did you do?
Do you have the motherboard manual?
Let me try to be more exact.
Do this.

Starting hardware.
1. CPU
2. Motherboard
3. Ram
4. Video card
5. Power supply
ect.

Parts changed for testing and the results.
A.
B.
C.
ect.

Parts the computer has now.
A. CPU
B. Motherboard
C. Ram
D. Video card
E. Power supply
ect.
I'm trying to figure at what stage things went to hell in a hand basket.
Well I said I would stay out of it but when I did the Googling on all of the mentioned components none came up as compatible hence my second last post. I did see a reference too to installing the old typ CPU and powering up and running BEFORE installing the new CPU but again I don't know or se what relevance that would have.

Personally I would like to see some readouts from HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download
re whatever especially on that PSU volts. I as you know - am always heading for the Power_Good readings as per this
Voltage Rails - Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications point 2.

Plus who is to say the RAM is compatible for that matter.

This is the board sisrace quoted he has, GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket FM2+ - GA-F2A88XN-WIFI (rev. 3.0)
Which has a FM2+ socket, which the 7700K needs a BIOS update to work.
The 6800K is a FM2 chip which should work.
I don't see, may have missed it, what GPU is being used anywhere.

Just a 2 cents post:
When doing a troubled build there are a few things that can be tried to narrow things down a little.
I know you have said you have tried everything but what I don't see is a limited setup. What I mean is this.

1. Remove all devices including mouse and keyboard (vid card as well)
2 start with 1 stick of ram, CPU, cpu power and 24 pin power plugged into the board.
3. power cord and vid cord only plugged in to machine.

This will show if those devices are talking to each other correctly. If still no signal I would hazard that the one boot did damage to an incompatable cpu.

Finding information for AMD is like finding hens teeth for me.
I think you right Gary about the cpu and motherboard with a (A88X) chip set.

Thank you Gary for the site.
I have spent hours going through AMD sites and all I get is conflicting information.
I hope we all can help fix this computer but I still can get a answer whether the bios has been fooled with.

Just changing fan operation in bios should not of started all these problems. I'm missing something.
