Hey guys so my buddy is putting together a video editing computer for me ( I am the one funding this and he's built about 20 computers in his life and here is the problem, everything was connected properly -- as far as he knows -- when we power the computer on and hook it up to a monitor absolutely nothing happens on the monitor. The computer is on, all the fans are spinning but there is no BIOS being displayed on the monitor, it doesnt register a signal of any sort. I think part of the problem as far as trying to diagnose the issue is that neither computer case nor the motherboard appear to have a speaker that would usually prompt you as to what the problem might be....any suggestions???

the motherboard manual is skipped over so many times in the midst of new build excitement, there is so much information in there that could relate to this scenario. the first thing i think of is ram sticks not being in the right slots or the USB hub routing mismatched.


 those sabertooth boards  don't have an onboard integrated video function so that isn't good. is there another basic video card that can be used at least to be able to get into BIOS display?
