Hi, I'm new here.
I admit, I am the problem (as is usual, eh?), but let me tell you what happened.
I bought a computer from Craigslist for 125 dollars. It was great. It smelled like smoke. I bought a new case, switched it out, and it was the best thing ever.
However, I went to on to donate my case for various reasons, and I bought a smaller one because I thought it would be cool to hide my computer under my bed. (yes, I realize I'm retarded, but in my defense, it would have been cool!)
So, now, I put it back together, and there is no picture on my monitor. Here's what I've ruled out:
the monitor (worked for another computer)
the graphic card (I swapped that out too, still nothing)
the power supply (swapped it out too, they're the same wattage)
Now, I've tried taking out all the RAM, save one, still nothing. All the fans works, I don't know about the lights (I also thought it would be cool to spray paint the case... err), and there is no sound, which I made sure to connect.
I followed the ASUS P4P-800VM motherboard manual instructions down to the dot, and STILL NOTHING.
Side note about the audio: There were a few options, "Internal Audio Connectors" which were: CD1 and AUX1 (which were both too far from the wire to connect), a Digital Audio connector (also too far), and the "System panel Connectors", where all the Power/Reset switches etc. reside. This is where I connected mine.
I can't believe I did this before. I'm so embarrassed.
