I recently built a new computer with a ASUS M2R32-MVP motherboard, Antec earthwatts EA380 380W psu, AMD Athlon X2 4450e, and an nvidia geforce 8500 GT which works fine since I am using it now on my other comp. The problem is when I start up my new pc that I just finished building, everything turns on, the mobo light turns green, the dvd drive can open/close and usb ports and fans and all that stuff work. The only problem I can see so far is I get no display on my monitor (All I want to see is the BIOS!!!). It seems to recognize that a cable is attached, but it just does not display anything. I thought it was the vid card at first, but after testing it on this comp right after, I figured out it wasn't. What could it be, and how can I fix it? Thanks

Hi favre135, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Do you get any beeps from the motherboard when you turn it on?

Have you rechecked to be sure that your RAM and other peripherals are plugged in properly?

Hi, I do not get any beeps and am pretty sure I have everything hooked up properly.

Check you user's manual to see what you should have for beep codes if it starts up properly, if I'm not mistaken you should have one beep to indicate a normal POST.

Is the PSU connector for the CPU connected?

What RAM (make and model) are you using? Do you have it populated properly?

It would be worth it at this point to try reinstalling the RAM modules and graphic card. Make sure that when you install the RAM that the clips pop into place.

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 is the RAM I have. If I take out the HD, and DVD drive I do not get any beeps. I believe I have the PSU connecter for the psu connected, where would it be located? What do you mean by populated?
