I've just finished assembling a micro atx build and i'm having some problems with it. When i start it up, first i dont get a video signal, and second it restarts itself after two seconds. Sometimes i'll get a loud beep (from the bios?). This is my second build and i am confused because my first one went without a hitch.

here is my build:

APEVIA X-QPACK-NW-BK/420 Black Aluminum 1.0 w/ ABS plastic front panel MicroATX Desktop Computer Case 420W Power Supply

Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6500 Wolfdale 2.93GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor BX80571E6500

Seagate Barracuda ST3250312AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Foxconn G41MXE-V LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML4GX3M2A1600C9

SAPPHIRE 100291DDR3L Radeon HD 5450 512MB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

I have tested the video signal from both the video card and the integrated on different monitors and still nothing, i have also changed the RAM with the RAM from my computer, which i know for sure works.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this has been frustrating me for the past 5 hours.

Thank You

Does your video card require supplemental power? If so, is it connected?

no that was the first thing i checked since i accidentally forgot that on my first build, it doesn't work with integrated graphics either, in case im just not seeing a supplemental power port. Thanks for the suggestion though
