Just finished building my first pc ...all the fans turn on..including ththe ones only getting power from the mobo, and the disk drive opens but I get no signal on the monitor...I have also tried using an HDTV...here are my specs:
CPU: amd Phenom 2 quad core 3.4ghz black ediiton
Graphics: msi gtx 570 twin frozr 2
Motherboard: asrock 970 extreme 3 am3+
Psu: rosewill hive 650w
Case: rosewill challenger
Ram: team xtreme 8gb (2x4gb
DVD drive: Asus DVD burner
Heatsink: Cooler master hyper 212 evolution
Hdd: western digital caviar blue 1TB hdd
Any help is much appreciated!!
No beep or or error codes, even removed all ram to try to envoke beeps, nothing. And it wouldnt be the graphics card isn't compatible is it? I mean it is a nvidia gtx 570 and my mobo and processor are amd bbut I was told it would work fine.
Well do cpu's have a chance to be broken out of the box? Because i ccan ggurantee iI didn't bend any prongs when inserting it...and maybe its just the pci e slots? Because things hooked only tto mobo are still getting power.
Man no problem, you helped diagnose the problem at least, thanks for the help. I'm going over to aa friends house tomorrow to test my graphics card in his PC to see if i can eliminate that ffrom the list of suspects, hopefully I can find all the things that came with my mobo in the mess of equipment on my table so i can RMA it back to newegg, also hoping they have a fast turn around.
