Hello all!

I have received my new computer parts today,

Ram: Corsair Dominator DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL8 3x2GB

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7

CPU: Intel Core i7 920 2,66GHz Socket 1366 Box

Components that I had before.
Graphics: XFX HD5850 Black Edition

Hiper 580W PSU.

Now when I start the computer, all fans are running & all Onboard LED's on the motherboard lights up,
but I get no picture on the screen ..

There is nothing wrong with my monitor it because it worked before I switched parts.
Have tried to test the memories 1 & 1 at a time.
Tested with my old 8800GTS graphics card but no luck.
Disconnected all hard drives & CD-ROM drive.
All power cords (24 & 8-pin) are plugged in on the motherboard.

I get no start-up image or nothing, the screen flashes as if it were in standby.
When I turn the monitor on and off I get a message on the screen that it is looking for either a Analog or Digital output.
No beeps from the motherboard.

Could it be a faulty CPU or a broken motherboard?
Or could it be that I have a weak PSU?

I cannot test with another cpu, psu, motherboard or ram because I have none.

Really grateful for answers!

The first thing is to go through EVERY step in the READ before posting about boot problems! sticky at the top of the forum. It was created to troubleshoot this exact type of problem.

I did read it but it didn't help me at all.

I found the solution just now though. The ram should be inserted in the three white slots instead of the three blue ones. Now it works perfect
