When I power on it goes through a testing phase where all of the LEDs on the mobo light up for a second and then turn back off. The BOOT_DEVICE_LED doesn't turn off though, it stays red. I have both SATA cables connected to my HDD (WD Caviar Black 1tb) and it is recieving power. I also receive no signal on my monitor when I power on. I've tried both HDMI and VGA cables. Is this because of the boot device error? How do I fix this?
I thought the lights turning on then off meant it was posting and just having an error? And what do you mean by done anything? Added anything? Nothing except for just recently connecting the power sata to the hdd.
And by specs you mean what parts do I have? Like I said, first time builder ><

Well it's not my first time turning it on, I just haven't gotten past the error LEDs yet. First had a problem with my DRAM_LED and now that that one is fixed it went to VGA_GPU which was fine and then to this one which is red. I just haven't got past the testing phase is what I meant. Have yet to see a signal on my monitor since I put it together.
