Hey guys, I just finished building my first computer, but I have a problem. When I turn the computer on, I get one beep, the motherboard screen comes up (the one that says press delete to enter bios etc.), then after about 2 seconds, the screen changes to "no signal". Then the computer beeps again, and it starts over. It is all very confusing and any advice would be excellent.
AMD Phenom II x6 1055t
4gb Corsair 1333mhz ram
Powercolor Radeon HD 6850 with 1gb gddr5
Antec 450w psu
p.s. If it helps the monitor is connected using DVI
I have tried completely disassembling and reassembling the whole system, but with no luck, and also I bought the 95w rather than the 125w version of the x6 if that would make a difference. The motherboard has onboard graphics that I could try, but I do not have the right cabbles to connect it to my monitor.
Ok so I managed to get hold of a VGA cable to test out the onboard graphics, and it has a different result. I get the beep, then it shows the motherboard screen. After that the screen goes blank, then after a few second it says "out of range" it stays like this. I have no idea what to do now.
Ok so I was trying to install windows 7 when it stayed at "expanding windows files-0%" for about an hour, so I decided to cancel it and start again. I ejected my disk and now I am back at the starting problem. I am getting really annoyed now and starting to regret building my own pc.
I've tried taking out the CMOS battery but it had no effect. I can't try reinstalling windows because it just goes from the motherboard screen to no input signal. I'll upload a video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0wZGv2FQnM
