Up until now my entire set up has had no problems. The computer starts, POSTS and even signs in to the desktop. The ONLY problem is absolutely no visual.
I have done everything I can imagine: Removing the mobo battery, waiting overnight and reinserting (this has worked before); making the needed configurations in BIOS; swapping out the GPU; using a different monitor; re-seating the RAM; re-seating the graphics card; re-installing the latest drivers.
The graphics card is locked into place and bolted in with a screw. The fan spins, but using the HDMI port yields no visual. Using the DVI port also yields no visual.
I consider myself well articulated and versed in computer hardware, but this has left me completely stumped. I turn to you all in hopes that someone can help.
I was using the onboard video + a CRT to get visual.
The problem was solved, however, after my dad inspected my case and noticed I hadn't put in any standoffs to hold up my board. Took the ones out of my old case, attached them to the new chassis, screwed in my mobo and voila.
My expansion card wasnt seated properly like I thought it was.
