Hi all,
I just got some new components from NEWEGG.com and started assembling them. I got a MoBo, CPU, Video card, power supply, SSD, and heatsink. I installed the CPU, memory, heatsink, and Video card so I could check if it would boot to the splash screen to make sure everything was working. I used an HDMI to my monitor from the video card and booted it up and everything was running. The problem is I wasn’t seeing the splash screen. I’m not sure exactly what to do so I am asking you, the community.
Thanks
Mike

Can you boot to the bios. It may have the MB splash screen disabled by default? The MB bios is the only splash you might see. Have you installed the OS yet?

If your monitor has DVI input, remove the graphics card and connect the monitor to the motherboard's onboard DVI. See if you can boot to BIOS.

Never a waste we all learn something with every issue. Glad it worked out so easily. Many years ago I was selling, installing and maintaining hi end audio and professional audio for nightclubs and discotheques. If I had another dollar for every issue that was resolved by "check to see it it is plugged in"; check to see if the plug is controlled by a switch" and check to see if you connected the wires from the amp to the speakers (no wireless back then)" I would be a very rich man.
