I started my new build today and everything works fine when I havejust my RAM and Mobo connected, I can start up and get the bios screen and everything. The second I connect my graphics card I get 5 beeps and no bios screen, nothing will come up on my screen... I'm not sure if that means the graphics card id shot.. or what. Please let em know, here is my build

According to the ASRock website (http://www.asrock.com/support/faq.asp?c=General Question #86) 5 long beeps indicate no VGA detected.

Make sure the video card is in the correct slot and has the 2x6 pin power connector fully inserted.

If that doesn't remedy the problem, your only real options are:

1. Trying the GPU in another system (if you have one) to see if it's a GPU or a MOBO problem.

or

2. RMA the GPU.

Unfortunately I don't think its ASRock, or the MOBO cause it works fine when the video card is disconnected, it shows the bios screen and everything.

That would be my first guess.

Of course, it could always be something wrong with the MOBO's PCI-E slot or even something wrong with the PSU. I think GPU problem is more likely though.

Good luck and sorry you lost the parts lottery.

One stupid question first: When you have the GPU in, you have your monitor plugged into the GPU and not the MOBO right?

I tried both, neither worked. It seems the second I connect my GPU, it gets stuck on the 5 beeps..
