Yesterday i installed a new system into my old case,



HD 3850 256mb

OCZ DDR2 2x1gb RAM

OCZ 600w PSU

sorry i cant be a little more specific at the moment.

It all went fairly smoothly. The PC worked, apart from some issues with the onboard Realtek HD audio, after a lot of fiddling around and restarts, the monitor now shows no input.

i cant tell whats going on when i restart (BIOS BEEPS ETC) as i dont know if my internal speaker is plugged in <(noob)

the GFX card has 2 DVI outputs and im using a supplied DVI-VGA adapter for my acer monitor 19" lcd, ive tried both DVI slots and hope to try a new monitor soon. im really hoping i havent inadvertantly fried the GRaphics card or the motherboard.

basically it worked fine for a few hours, then after some tinkering it has no input.

please please help

Try a different monitor.
Re-seat the video card.
Try a different cable and/or DVI/VGA adapter.

Did you reinstall Windows, or at least try a repair install?

You can always buy a small speaker for a few dollars at Radio Shack and connect that to the speaker header pins.
First, try clearing the CMOS according to the instructions in you MB manual.
