Hey guys, having a big problem here..I just finished building a new pc with(everything is brand new here):
1- i7-3820 CPU
2-Asus p9x79 mobo
3-corsair hx750 psu
4-asus hd 6450 video card
5-32gb (8X4gb) g.skill are ram
6-noctua nh-d14 se2011 CPU cooler
7-crucial 256 m4 SSD
and when i initially connect the power supply and turn it on, the greed LED on the motherboard lights up, and when i turn on the PC everything seems to work so fine, 4 LED fans, the noctua cooler, the case, everything turns on fine,except the monitor..Nothing shows up on the monitor..
I first had my monitor checked with another PC and it worked fine, so its not the monitors issue for sure..
second, i change the pcie slot for the graphics card and switched the PC on again but it didn't work still..
i connected the keyboard to different USB ports and rebooted the machine many times, but still nothings shows on the monitor....btw i had my PSU checked with the PC shop technical stuff and they connected it to some kind of a meter that showed that its working fine and giving the correct voltages..
so what do you think this issue is from guys? i really appreciate getting some help here.. Thanks.
so i took the mobo outside and tested it with no luck, same thing, everything's working except that nothings shows on screen.
i unplugged everything and left only the cpu and the noctua and gave it a test, i got 3 beeps (1 long+2 short) indicating that i don't have the ram or the video card installed, which was a good sign that the cpu is installed properly and had no issues.
Then i fitted the ram and video card only with no optical drives, and still with no luck.. same results...NOTHING COMES ON MY BLOODY SCREEN
so i went with updating the BIOS and guess what !!! IT WORKED!!! finally something came on the screen after a long 2 nights of trouble shooting and replacing parts YAY
but.. what came on the screen wasn't too good actually i had a "CPU FAN ERROR" screen with long beeps.. even though my noctua fans were 100% on and spinning and correctly connected to the motherboard..i pressed F1 and went to the BIOS, and my CPU temperatures were between 23-25 degrees, i noticed the fan speed is below normal as it was written in a red colour in the BIOS.
Does anybody know what should i do about this please?
but the good news is..i finally saw something on the monitor, so there IS hope!!
