I got this computer from work and I am trying to get it running.
MSI 955X Platinum
2GB DDR2 667
Rosewill 550W PSU
Unknown CPU (havent gotten it to boot to see what it is)
8500 GT (I think)
I am getting no video output. I tried the 8500 GT that was in there and got nothing. Tried my 8800GTS that i know is working and nothing. No motherboard lights come on when I turn the PSU power switch on. When i hit the front power button, everything seems to come on, all the fans spinning. Kinda think it must be MOBO.
I have the same exact problem, but this time with brand new hardware: no screen, no beeps, nothing. Only the fans and the hard drive are starting, that could mean OK electrical activity but nothing else.
Having no other compatible CPUs, ram modules or motherboards to test, I still don't know how do determine WHICH component is failing: motherboard, CPU or ram?
Yeah, it's pretty hard to test with no reference parts. Usually that is a motherboard problem though if it's not beeping to tell you about other hardware problems. Make sure you attach the provided speaker to your motherboard.
