Ive gone through the hassle of changing wiring, getting new parts, and visisted various websites, but I am still having trouble building my friend's new computer. The problem is after putting together all the parts, we turn on the computer and nothing shows up on the monitor, and I dont hear the beep noise that computer is suppose to make when you turn it in. I suspect the problem could have to do something with bios loading from the motherboard. I would greatly appreciate some advice to fix this problem, so I am able to boot up the computer and access the bios. Any advice or help would be great thanks.
To get beep codes, you have to connect up a system speaker. Most cases dont come with them any more.
If this is a used case, make sure there are no standoffs in the wrong place.
To be sure the basics work, set the mobo on a phone book or cutting board, and attach only 1 stick of ram, graphics card, chip, with hsf, and psu. If it posts, you know these parts are good.
