(help) No video out and GPU fans spin up to max.

I broke my old CPU pins off so I bought a new one I know works. Every time I power on the computer the GPU fans run at max speed and I can't get any video out or any other indication it is working. So far I've switched RAM slots but not the RAM itself(I only have one stick), tried a different PSU, tried a different graphics card, and cleared CMOS. All resulting in the same thing. Can anyone help me?

  1. use the iGPU and then disable it in the BIOS?
  2. Also I don't get any sound from the case speaker

    then you aren't posting

    your computer may be having problems boot up. Try reseating the GPU and then try it again.
  4. I should have stated that I am running an AMD FX build with no integrated GPU. A Radeon 6970 and FX-6350.
  5. I've moved the GFX card to both the primary slot and the secondary slot. Neither have an effect.
  6. I'm new to these forums and I accidentally just hit the solve button. How do I change it back?
  7. defective unit maybe?
  8. I know the CPU works as I've tried it in another board.
  9. no i mean defective GPU
  10. I don't think that's the case either. I tried running the computer with an old GPU I found and the same thing happens.
  11. defective PCIE slot?
  12. Not unless it's both of them. I tried both GPUs in both slots
  13. maybe some power connector is not seated correctly.
  14. I've reseated the CPU power connector, the GPU and mobo connecters and that doesn't seem to make a difference.
  15. what does the computer do when you try to boot up?
  16. All the fans turn on and light up. The hard drive spins up along with the GPU fans revving at full speed. There is no case speaker beep. The heatsink gets mildly warm and that's about it
  17. so it's turning on but it's not posting. Could be RAM perhaps?
  18. That's what I was thinking but would it cause it to not post?
  19. well I assume that if there's no RAM that the computer detects then it wouldn't be ABLE to post right?

    how many sticks do you have? one, or two?
  20. Only one. I'll try turning it on without any and see if that makes a difference.
  21. Try stealing a stick from another computer and using that alone. that could help
  22. Ok so it acts the same with and without the RAM. Which means it's either that or the CPU is damaged.
  23. probably the RAM is damaged at this point
  24. That's what I'm thinking. I'll buy another stick. And if that doesn't work I'll buy a new CPU. Thanks for your help. I wish I could mark your answer as the solution but I already marked someone else's by accident.
  25. haha the one you marked was a different answer from me ;)
