I have a desktop computer that I built around 4 years ago. I was trying to get it running recently and am stumped on the issues it is having.
I don't have the exact spec list anymore and newegg doens't seem to record my history that back far, but from what I remember/can see:
1) intel motherboard
2) E6600 processor
3) 4 ram slots , with 2x4GB ram*
4) no built in display (vga, hdmi, ...)
5) corsair power supply
Now the issue is that I do not see any display on boot. At first the computer would boot and make 3 beeps. So I googled the 3 beeps for intel boards and it said it could be the RAM. I then took all the RAM out and put one in at a time. One stick caused beeps, but the other three do not.
Even with one of the other three in though, it still boots to no display.
The monitor I am using works with other systems so that I know it is not that. I also tried several VGA cables (including ones that work on other systems). I also have tried 3 different video cards all in different PCI-E slots, but still cannot get a display.
Does anyone else have ideas as to what it may be? Is it very hard to debug the issue when I cannot even see a BIOS menu...
