I'm trying to put together a computer with an MSI motherboard, ati video card and some basic 512 X3 ram. (not sure what the processor is) When the computer boots up nothing shows up on the screen. Fans run etc. and the monitor light turns from yellow to green for an instant and then back to yellow. I removed all but one RAM, the soundcard, (i even tried removing the hdd and the cd drive) and still nothing. The monitor for sure works as i tried it on my laptop. I tried a different video card so i don't think that's teh problem (however the fan on the first vid. card never spins... probably just because it's temp controlled though)
Is there a way to flash the BIOS if no BIOS is even appearing? Is there somethign else i should be trying?
