The initial boot setup showed that only the cpu and RAM were detected. Monitor mouse and keyboard were functional but after double checking I saw that the power wasn't connected fully to the devices that weren't detected including a case fan.
After rerouting cables I got the undetected devices and fans juiced up but there was no display and the mouse and keyboard were not working. I've tried taking out and putting back in the mobo button battery with no luck. Could it be a motherboard problem?
