  1. And you did connect PCIe power to the 7770? If there is motherboard speaker does it beep with no card in?
  2. OF course I plugged in the Extra 6pin graphics card POWER Im not stupid----------- and it may have some speakers ...I do not have them connected though----- only the power switch is connected to the mobo and the case fans and usb are the only case related things connected to MOBO----- I remember hearing a sound of some sort earlier come from the machine after starting up------ ALthough I have been working on it for a long time with only the power switch enabled---- perhaps I should connect all case functions and make diagnostics based on observations-------------------------------

    However I will wait for a little bit----- I think i will go reset up my old computer that I took my 7770 from so I can play LEGAUE of legends with my new razer death adder--- lolz ---

    ALso The hard drive that I have set up to be with my new computer Deafultly boots to linux backtrack 5 if I do not do any inputs--- I do not know if it will autboot with the new MOBO and PRocessor--- but with linux it might--- perhaps type Startx ROOT TOOR ----- and see if backtrack can make it work----- however I WOULD SEE BIOS LOAD BEFORE LINUX WOULD LOAD AND I DO NOT SEE BIOS AT ALL --- ALL CARDS SHOULD HAVE A DEFAULT BIOS RESLOUTION --------- AND IT DOES NOT ON 2 DIFFERENT CARD THAT ARE TESTED GOOD---- Is it mobo broken or is there a solution???

    When you have no video it is usually memory.
    Power off and insert memory into the blue slots and be sure they are properly seated.
  7. Power off reseat memory in blue memory slots.
