Easy enough. I've built a computer prior to this. Not even close and I want to stab my eyes out.

So my brother and I put it all together and powered up. everything ran great. Lights, HDs, burner, keyboard, mouse, monitor light stayed orange. RGB no input signal flashed onscreen and that was that. Here is some of the EVERYTHING I have tried.
I took the PCI-E graphics card and drove 2 hrs to try it in a friends computer. It worked.

I tried my monitor on someone else's PC. It worked.

I tried a different monitor on mine. It didn't work.

I sent back the motherboard and got a new one. It didn't work. (same problem)

I reset the BIOS.

Checked connections.

Tried new monitor cables.

Checked for bent pins.

Disconnected the HD's.

Disconnected the burner.

Bought a new antec power supply

POST info:
the keyboard lights do all flash and then go out as they should.
I have taken out one stick of ram...1 short beep
I have taken out two sticks of ram...3 long beeps
I have taken out video card....no beeps
I have left in two sticks of ram....no beeps

I notice when there are no beeps, there is the most faint beep of a different tone. You could only hear it if it were completely silent in the room.

I have also tried running the system outside the case.....same issues.


It has been over a month of trying to figure this out. Someone please tell me I'm retarded and forgot something very simple!

That or I send every part back next week. . . .



is it possible this video card needs to be plugged by the PSU? I saw no document on that and didn't need to, in a friends computer. But could there be something to this?

So let me get this straight, you have NO beeps when you have no vid card in the PC?

are you using the D-SUB conn? or the digital? i dont know if that will make a difference but it could be your monitor wire is busted. sometimes u gotta look at the things right under your nose

Now I can't remember the POST code, so I looked it up. If you booted up the PC without the vid card, there should be 1 long beep and 8 short beeps for AMI BIOS, 1 long 2 short for AWARD BIOS. I understand you're questioning the mobo and VC.. you've tested the VC on a separate PC, and you sent the mobo back... I agree with Lego, check ALL connections between the PC and the Monitor. I know you've tried a lot of things, but think of the most obvious.... is the VC fan firing up when you turn it on? If there is a power connect from the VC to the PSU, try connecting it to different power connections. Put it all together, and look closely at everything. If push comes to shove, let newegg know what's going on.

I understand you used the VC on another PC, but it may be that you need to return the VC... no need to return everything if the other parts are ok.
