Just built new pc with all new parts from newegg. Finally got system put together, pushed power button and the computer starts, but nothing comes up on the screen. Not sure what the problem is, im going to grab a couple video cards from work tomorrow and try those but i would like to use the video card I have now. Here are my specs.
GIGA-BYTE K8NS-PRO
AMD ATHLON 3000+
512 Corsair Value

Go through the basic checks.

CPU pins, if it isnt contact.
All IDE/Sata/power cables.
Reset cmos jumper. (if available)
Cmon battery ( unlikely as root of problem)


Any beeps? any noises at all? If it isnt anything above, I think its vid card.

duckswin,

Make sure that you have the small internal speaker (the one inside the case) hooked up so that you can hear the POST beebs. Those beebs will not come through the regular computer speakers so you must have the internal hooked up to hear them. You may also want to take out the video card, and memory and reinstall them making sure that everything is seated correctly. If you suspect a bad video card try the video card on another computer.

Tried Video Card in another computer and it worked fine, reset CMOS and removed battery for 30 minutes. Checked all cables and ram...still no luck. I will be bringing home some more parts to try out on the mobo today...hopefully with some luck.

Is the new video card PCI or AGP?

You might also want to try the memory on a different computer since the video checked out okay. Couple other things:
1) Is there power getting to the system? (Fans coming on?)
2) Make sure RAM is compatible with the MB
3) Make sure you used the proper insulators (risers) so that the MB is not shorting out on the case
4) Did you apply the sivler thermal paste between the processor and the processor fan?
