Hey HiveMind,


I desperatly need your help.

I spent the last hours carefully assembling my new hardware. But now when I took her for a testride the screen stays black.


*I checked the monitor on my laptop, it works perfectly fine

*there's absolutley no beeping, I even put out the RAM to provoke some - but nothing ... might be explained because I didn't find the pin to put into the beeping port

*all fans are running

*graphic card's fans are running at it shows a light indicating it's running

*power button shows green light indicating LEDs are plugged in correctly

Hi, please note that not all cases contain a speaker for POST beeps. If yours does not then we are going to have to diagnose your problem without them. If you do have a speaker on your case, please refer to the diagram on page 20 of the motherboard manual to connect the speaker.

Please also try connecting your monitor to the onboard graphics - I would like to determine whether it is an issue with your GPU.
