This is my first build, I know it is cheap haha please do not make fun of me. The blue computer light turns on and the motherboard is lit up orange, the fan built into the case is running, the GPU fan is running, the processor cooling fan is running. I have tried rewiring everying, reseting the motherboard power, changing the RAM locations around, I cannot get anything to work and I feel like I am so close, please help I am about to give up and pay to get it fixed.

I am worried that I may have some defective part but I am really not sure at all.

Thank you in advance!

  1. also the keyboard allows me to use num/caps lock and the mouse light is on when plugged in
  2. Did your motherboard come with a little speaker? It plugs in where you plug your front panel connectors into the motherboard. If so, does it make any beeps when you boot the computer? One beep? Multiple beeps? Long beeps? Short beeps? If you are hearing one short beep, it is posting.

    I assume the issue you're having is that there is no output to your monitor? What kind of cable are you using? I would recommend using VGA or DVI. If your motherboard has video out, try plugging that in instead of your GPU. An issue I've had in the past is HDMI not working on new builds. What I had to do was set everything up and plug in VGA to my graphics card then download and install drivers. After that, you should find everything works with HDMI and other outputs.
  3. Thank you for your response. I do not believe the motherboard has a speaker on it, I am not hearing any beeping sounds when I attempt to boot up, just the sound of all the fans running. I am attempting to connect with a VGA.
  4. Yeah, unfortunately not all boards come with speakers. This is what it would look like if it did (and where you would connect it). http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-90432262887525_2272_195764161

    I'm assuming you have 2 sticks of RAM? Try using just one stick to boot and see what happens. One channel or one stick may be bad causing you issues.
