ok well im building a new desktop all the part i am use are new except the mobo was an open box from newegg which they clam was checked to make sure it worked properly

here a link to the mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...ntent-_-text-_-

i have everything install ram,hdd,fans,lights, all good the mobo has no on board video card so i put in and nvidia geforce 6600 gt, a little older of a card, turned it on and got nothing no bio screen no splash screen, just black and the monitor goes un resposive after a few seconds like theres no signal. thinking and hoping it was the video card i went out and bought a new nvidia 8400gs, a cheap 60 dollar card for trouble shooting, installed it turned on and again nothing. i get no beeps, all the lights and fan come on, the only other weird things it the HDD light on the case is red. so thinking that might somehow be a problem i uninstantiated the HDD still nothing. so what does everyone think the mobo is fried? or am i doing something wrong. i know the video card has to be installed but i should get some sort of picture right, or be able to get into safe mode?

ty in advance.

First thing I would do...is recheck all connections, including the front panel connectors.

You have another system...to check the functionality of parts (PSU, hard drive, etc.) on?

I don't see that you checked the front panel connections to the motherboard from the case...or the PSU connections.

As for "new" components...they arrive DOA everyday somewhere in this thing we call a world. That's why manufacturers issue RMAs...things often go wrong.

Hi aprillia99, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Would you please list the components that you use in this build?

What operating system are you using?
