Hi, recently i purchased an ASUS P5Q-E MOBO and an Intel Q6660 processor. I installed this in my case using my old GPU a Evga Geforce 7600gs and HDDs, a Western Digital 250g and a Seagate 200g along with a new LG dvd/cd drive and I purchased a 650watt BFG power supply. Before i go into more detail, i know all of the old components work perfectly as i have tested them. OK, so I put in the memory, 2x Kingston 512mb 533mhz ddr2 240pin and 2x Viking 256mb 533mhz ddr2 240pin. install the CPU, and i mount the mobo in the case. next i install the GPU into the first PCI-E slot which is a 2.0 but they are BW compatible. next i get the motherboard power plugs hooked up. The 24pin and the 8 pin eax12v. I rig up the power to the HDDs and the dvd/cd drive run the Stata and ide cables, plug her in and hit the power button.... All lights flick on, all fans spin perfectly, all drives power up...but there is no picture on my monitor yet when i leave it running i can feel the heatsink on the card and it is warm as if it has power and producing a picture. I also noticed that the wireless hub for my mouse and keyboard is not lit up as it normally would at the ASUS splash screen...this leads me to think that there is an issue with RAM, the CPU or, dread, the MOBO itself. When it powers on, all lights come on, all fans start to spin, ect., as if it were going to boot right up. However: as I mentioned before, the mouse hub is not lighting up which also controls the keyboard. this would mean that the boot-up is not occuring correct? is it a sign that the motherboard is damaged and power is not reaching the USB ports a? I am stumped finally and am seeking help with this diagnosis. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I have however tried everything on the ASUS webpage, POST is fine, Grounding did nothing, ect. Any other information needed, just ask and i will provide. (On a side note, i apologize for my sloppiness, i am tired and frustrated. as anyone would be in this case, and gave as detailed info as i could right now.
Thank you for reading,
