New build no display issue

Parts:

Intel Pentium Dual Core E5400

Asus P5G41C-M (Onboard Intel X4500 Graphics

Antec EA-430D Green Earthwatts 430W Continuous Supply

Mushkin Silverline 2x1G DDR2 800mhz


For the time being I'm not worried about drives because I can't even get this mother to POST.

I've tried everything I can conceivably think of, I've tried three different video cards, two of which I know for a fact work, Reset the CMOS, It's all brand new parts.

Everything boots up, no beeps, fans run, Roms flash/spin/open etc, Everything that should be happening at boot is, except the Monitor gets nothing, just remains in sleep mode, I've tried two different monitors (And cables.)

I am completely and utterly stumped; The only thing I can think of is if the onboard graphics are no good?

    The only thing I'm not 100% on is the CPU/Bios revision compatibility, I will look in to that.

  7. You are using a case speaker that is attached through the motherboard header, NOT hooked up to the audio out ports, Right?
