Hi guys,
Below is my current system. I just recieved all of the parts a few days ago and I put it all together. When I went to start up the comptuer, all the blue lights came on, all the fans came on. I have all of the motherboard voltage lights come on, but that is it. There are no new first power Bios beeps or anything. Just the sound of the fans. My monitor is black except a white bock that is moving around the screen that says searching for analog signal, but I am using a DVI cable. I don't know. I know there could be a good many possible things that could be wrong, I just didn't know if anyone had any first suggestions. I have reseated my video card. I mean for a first boot, shouldn't I atleast get some beeps regarless if I have a possible bad video card? Anyway, any help would be much appreciated.

-Thanks

1. Switch LCD source to DVI (just to make sure the signal is not present).

2. Reseat the graphics card (disconnect the cables and make sure it sits properly), reseat the RAM modules and remove all harddrives (while testing).

Your board doesn't have an onboard beeper I think. Connect the LCD poster and check the post codes.

To hear a beep, you need a tiny speaker hooked to the SPK pins on the mobo. See your manual for the location.

Try & remove all but one stick of ram. If the pc posts, go to bios, load defaults, up the vdimm to 2.1v, save & exit.
