    look like the case doesn't have a hdd led so it won't have a cable. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=25_1055&products_id=21166

    No big deal.

    it still dose not explain why the pc starts but it dose not display it on my tv when i have the hdmi cable connected to my tv (as i am a noob at this i am basically trying to put it together using the manuals) do u have any idea why my pc would start fine but not display anything on my tv ? are there any cables i should have plugged in for the hdmi port to work ?
  3. OK so now you've added another problem. You're only supposed to address one per thread. But let's do it anyway. Just remember if there's a next time.

    Have you got the tv switched to the hdmi that the pc is connected to? Is there actually a pc connector (eg vga) port also on the tv? Is the graphics card in properly? - seated and locked into the pcie slot? Power connectors connected to the 760?

    Does it work connected to the pc monitor?

    i have not connected my graphics card i assumed that my moab would have an onborad graphics (i however do have a grapics card but i am not sure how i set it up grapics card(Palit Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB GDDR5 Jetstream )would i use the cables that came with the power to connect it and dose it connect to the power or or the moab
    i just connected the graphics card as far as i can tell it is the graphics card is working but it still is not displaying any image on my pc monitor or on my tv
  5. If I remember right (it's been a while since I did this on my own R4), you have the option of either hooking up the single LED to the power button led or the HDD led light path..I remember going with power as I don't really care about the HDD led

    As for not working when hooked up to the tv, if it is the first time booting up try using a regular computer monitor first when setting things up, I have read many times about how people can't see the BIOS when they use a TV screen. Assuming everything else is functioning, a monitor should work properly
