Hey guys,

Ive just put together my new build and everything seems to turn on, even my xfx 5850 fan is running but for some reason i cant get a signal out to my monitor. Ive tried HDMI to my HDTV first and that didnt work and ive even tried to connect it to a normal vga monitor with the dvi to vga connector that came with it but no love... what can i do???

i've worked out the problem, it was kinda weird though, i just swapped around the 2 ram sticks and it worked... that shouldnt have been a problem should it? should i run memtest to see if one of them is stuffed?

it may have just been the fact that you re-seated the ram, may have been a bad connection. Swap them back and see if the problem is still there. But yeah, also run memtest86+
