Help - New Build - No Video

Thursday I assembled all of the parts for a new computer, a first for me. Alas all is not well. The components are as follows:

Mobo-Asus P5N32-E-SLI
CPU-e6600
Memory-Corsair CM2x1024-6400C4D
Psu-Corsair HX620
HDD-Seagate 320Gb 7200.10 SATA
DVD R/W-LG GSA H10
Video-EVGA 8800GTS

After all was assembled the system was powered up without any beep codes. The problem is that I get no video on the monitor to view POST and go into bios. I have verified that the monitor works by connecting it to the DVI out on my laptop. Please help this noob.

  1. I had a similar issue the other night. I started pulling non-essential parts (2nd HDD, sound card, etc.). Then started disconnecting the rest of it. Think I started out with memory, disconnected power to vid. Then things started happening. At least I was getting error codes then. It gave me a starting point, and now I'm up and running.

    May work for you too. Give it a shot.
  2. Actually I went out last night and bought a different vga card (PNY 7600GS) and installed it this morning. Everything worked fine. The 8800gts was apparently DOA.

    Sorry to hear that, PEH. It's what I was afraid of but I could not think of any way ... other than what you did ... to test it out. (It's one of the reasons I continue to hold on to some old, totally outdated PCI video cards. In a pinch, I've got something I can use to test with).

    I assume you're going to go through the RMA process now with the 8800GTS. But what are you planning to do with the PNY 7600GS?

    The 8800 has already been returned to NewEgg for replacement. I will, with some reluctance, return the 7600GS. Thanks for your post on this thread and the previous, which apparently got edited.

    Not edited. I think the links to the data just got lost when the SQL database for this message board crashed. There was nothing intentional about what happened, it was all just a bad software and/or hardware failure.
