Hi, I recently recieved my RMA'd motherboard from Asus (P8Z77-V). As such, I was excited when I found out that the LEDs, fans, etc. would turn on. However, I discovered a horrendous fact: There is no display output! Does anyone know why? I almost forgot - I recently switched displays (form a 19" Viewsonic 1440x900) to an Asus 22" 1080p IPS panel. Same connectors, cables, same everything. I tried taking out the GPU, etc,but no luck. Everything else in my system is functional (CPU, display, GPU). The motherboard has this LED that turns red when the memory settings are bad, but the DIMMs I used were the same one I used before. There's also a memOK! button LED that claims to fix the problems, but no luck. I've already added bad DIMMs to my list of possible problems. Anything else?

If you have system sounds on, listen for the windows sound, meaning your computer booted fine.

Nope, no sound. Another note, no input devices are working. Mouse and keyboard's LEDs are not lit up.

I think it's very unlikely. Asus tested it. I'm under the impression that it's the RAM.

Could be, do you have any spare RAM laying around, even if its like 512mb?

As it turns out, it was a CPU installation issue. Thankfully, I did not have to replace the processor. I just reinstalled it and the isssues went away. :D
