New build, all turns on but wont show on monitor.

everything fires up fine, but no beeps and doesnt go to bios or it might, just not showing up on screen. Any suggestions would be a great help. Ive tried one stick at a time, and fireing it up with the min. hooked up. thank you.

  1. forgot about vid card, its a older card, but is hooked up to the psu and all lights up and fans spin.
  2. What motherboard do you have?

    Is the 4/8 pin CPU power cable plugged in?
  3. motherboard is a Asus p5be
    I ran it w/o any ram and it gave me 3 beeps ( one long two short ). then put one stick back in and no beeps.
  4. It's most likely a BIOS issue. The P965 chipset does not officially support the 45nm CPU's like your E8400. There are some beta BIOS's availabe, but you would have to get a 65nm CPU in order to flash the BIOS. That motherboard is a pretty old model. There have been two chipsets since then.
