I'm building my first PC and I'm running into an issuw with no video output to the monitor. I know the monitor is good - I just unplugged it from my old PC.

 

I have a ASRock FM2A55M-DGS motherboard and a Corsair CX430M power supply. I do not have anything connected to the ATX 12V power connector (4-pin ATX12V1). The manual says to connect an ATX 12V power supply to this connector, but when searching the ASRock website it seemed to indicate that all that power that is needed is supplied from the ATX Power Connector (24-pin ATXPWR1).

 

There were no connectors that came with the power supply that would connect to the ATX 12V power connector.

 

So, my question is... do I need to get some connector for the ATX 12V power connector to make the video work? If not, what else could be causing this?

 

Thanks!

Does the computer stay on when power it up?

I have to hit the reset button th start the PC, and it seems to stay on as the fan in the case, power supply and processor are running. The lights on the front of the PC are on as well.

 

Thanks!

check and make sure that the processor is seated correctly, when I set my computer up for the first time the heat sync on the CPU was heavy enough that it popped the CPU out of its socket because it wasnt clipped right, and I had this exact same issue, reseating and reclipping fixed everything

I think you need that 4 pin ATX connector hooked up.  Your PSU has one.  Ck for an 8 pin connector on the PSU that splits into 2 4 pins.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. It turns out that I needed the 4 pin ATX connector just like dpunisher suggested.
