    None of the cases I've used (in ~20 builds) have come with a speaker to connect, so, you won't ever hear any beeps for board / BIOS level issues.... (system speakers need some drivers to be loaded 1st...)

    Check that your monitor is set to the correct input type:
    - Analog if your connected to the top connector VGA...
    - Digital if your connect to the bottom connector DVI....

    Assuming your using built-in motherboard graphics as you don't mention a GPU card....

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply but I just found out that the new motherboard I had bought had a faulty cpu slot - so I am returning it.

  4. Ok, cool....

    When you get the new one inspect it carefully. Then, be sure the CPU chip is correctly oriented & precisely aligned before closing the clamp on the chip. Being off Just a bit will wreck those sockets everytime....
