I've never done that before, by the way. But i often played with computer components
into the new case and plugged psu. I have an nvidia 8600gt as a video card.
Problem is, when i start the computer, everything sounds great. I hear fans (psu is fine then), my usb memory sticks make light (witch makes me think that mobo works?). However, my lcd monitor i get no image. I'm pretty sure videocard works though. I tried to plug monitor into the motherboard video, still nothing.
Monitor gives no signal at all actually, no messages like -no signal-...
I think i just didnt plug something correctly, but i see nothing else to plug on my motherboard... what did i do wrong??
Some blue light flashing, it does it when the lcd is turned on but comp is off.
I went further to see my problem :
-My lcd works correctly
-My GPU works fine too
-PSU works perfectly
-DVD (IDE) : do not work at all
-Mobo... i don't know...
-CPU : i think that's my problem... the fan on it works. I unplugged the fan and turned on computer and the cpu seemed to do no sound or heat at all... seems like that's whats not working...
I tried to remove ram and put it back in, clear cmos memory, still nothing... so i really guess i got a problem with cpu... is it dead???
... oh well i think cpu (and maybe mobo) is just dead i've been passing all day on it, trying everything and that's the only thing i could conclude. Anyway it's old stuff, gotta buy something new now... thx anyways all
