No Video at Startup

Hi Everyone,

This is my first build, first post as well.

Just after finishing my build, I started up and got the single short beep which I believe means all is well. LEDs light up, hard drive spins, fans go, ect. But there is no video output. So I shut down, checked the seating of my video card, and started up again, still nothing. There is no video out on the MB. So I switched PCI slots, nothing, switched monitors and cables, nothing, tried a different graphics card, nothing. My video card doesn't require an aux power (I know this because the 2nd one did so it's apparent). So I am thinking this has to be something with the motherboard. Because of this, I can't see the BIOS. No OS is installed as of yet because there is no video. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help!

  1. By the way, I did most of what is suggested here:

    With the exception of reseting CMOS (because it's a new board)
  2. It's a fairly high-powered set up so 550 watts may not be enough to provide adequate power for all components, consider at least 720 watts.
