Rebuild not working.





Everything's hooked up, powered up, and spinning, just no signal to the monitor. With the PSU on, there's one red LED lit on the mobo, powering on the machine adds a blue one to the mix is this correct? Graphics card gives green light on back, indicating proper power. I know the monitor works, I took it from another machine I have, and I've tried switching memory configs and just one stick (2G). I've also cleared the CMOS several times. Have also tried a PCI graphics card, still nothing on the screen.




Cheers jules :thumbsup:

Is the monitor cable the correct one for your setup? Check and make sure there are no bent pins

Hi, I'm just using the monitor cable that is attatched to the monitor with an adapter
stuck on the graphics card. No none of the pins seem bent. Have tried 2 different
screens that I know work on other machines.

Cheers jules

Do you have the PSU connectors for the CPU and graphics card plugged in?

What does the user's manual say about the LED display on the motherboard and the RAM population?

Have you gone back and checked all of your connections?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Are there any jumppers that came with the video card? If so you will need those hooked up.

Some adapters just don't work. That would be my first suspicion What type of connection do you have at both ends?
