Bleepingcomputer,

Building a comp for a friend, connected everything and booted up the computer for the first time which gives just a "black/no signal" screen. Two different monitors and 2 diff AGP cards I get the same black screen...The monitor reports there is no signal coming in. Power is getting to the monitors and to the AGP slot which brings power to the cards (one of them has a fan which goes on). Praying the mobo is not bad and maybe I just noobed it up somehow...any ideas? Help would be appreciated, thx.

Mobo:
ASUS K8U-X Socket 754 ULi M1689 ATX AMD

Card:
ATI 100-437105 Radeon 9550 256MB DDR AGP 4X/8X Vid Card

Thanks again,
Some guy.

Do you have the small internal speaker hooked up, and if so do you hear any beebs when you start the system? You should hear one beeb, if you hear several beebs or no beebs you have a problem.

Don't mistake the standard audio with the internal speaker, the standard audio (that you hook your speakers up to) is hard wired to the MB. I am talking about the small internal speaker that should come with the computer case. The connection for that small speaker is down where you hook up the Power and HDD LED's. It should be stamped on the MB next to the connections. The only manuals I could find for that MB are in French and Chinese I will keep looking. (Unless you can read French)

I see what you are saying, if we can't get beeps we can't know if the POST will go through or not. One thing I don't understand, is there are what appears to be audio connectors (actual speaker plug ins) pink (MIC?) and green (AUD?) jacks coming from the front of the case's internals...I'll keep looking but i've connected everything so far and didn't see any audio connectors other than the ones I just mentioned. : \

Inside the case do you see the small speaker either on the bottom of the case or on the inside front panel?

I had similar problem. 1, check to see if ram is compatible. My board would not POST without buffered memory, 2, clear CMOS jumper and try to start.

You should not have to access the front panel you should be able to see it from looking inside.

Did you use the silver thermal paste in between your processor and your processor fan?

Looking still, about the processor, it was bundled with the heatsink and fan. It already had a square of thermal paste on the heatsink for CPU contact.

I see the Fron panel audio connector on the board now labeled "FP_AUDIO" but not seeing any connectors from the tower. However the specs from the manuf do say "Front Access Ports 2 x USB 2.0, **2 x Audio"**
