I used to have a old 300W PSU

But I have now just installed a 480W PSU Enermax

I have installed all the circuits properly where they should be, (I think) but I probably made one mistake. The reason is that when I turn on the computer, everything seems to work fine. There is no beeping coming from the computer but the monitor doesn't display anything.

I also happened to just install a new video card as well. I used to have a integrated video card and now just inserted a PCI-E GEforce 8600GTS into it. I have no disabled anything from the BIOS as this computer was bought in 2005 so I'm assuming it should self-detect??

What could be the problem?
I installed the PSU and new Video card at the same time. I just popped the new video card in since there was nothing there to begin with.
One thing I'm thinking of is that the power supply for the connector to the motherboard mine is 24 pin, but the PSU comes with 20+4 pins. I inserted all 24 in. Thats correct right?

Also the PSU came with two seperate 4 pined connectors for the processor as well. Since I only have one, (not dual core) I just inserted one of the two randomly into the appropriate slot. Have I made any errors based on this information???

The computer is turning on, and staying on. But my monitor isn't displaying anything.
My MOBO is: ASUS name: PTGD1-LA In case this could help.

okay.

1. connect the monitor to the onboard video.
2. get into bios and set the 1st video option to pciex16
3. exit and save.
4. shut off pc and move the monitor cable to the video card.
5. turn on pc.

that should do it. when you get into windows you will need to install the drivers.

How about fans and hard drives? Do drives sound like they are running? Can you insert a CD/DVD and have that drive spin up?

And...just doublecheck all your PS connections. That's where I usually goof up :thumbsup:.

And yes, the 24-pins into 24-pin was a good thing.

I would remove the video card you installed..and try a boot using the onboard video (which is already enabled).

hey guys, stupid but the problem was that I wasn't hooking my monitor's adapter into the video cards slot. Instead I was just playing my display adapter in the same old place where it was prior to me installing the video card.

Fixed. Thanks for the replies guys.

But for future reference, how do I enter bios?

I think the issues are related you can not auto update your av and such, and you are also having monitor issues.

I can help but will need the info i asked for.
