New PC Build Problem

Well I got my new motherboard, all the parts are installed and I can push the Power button and all the LEDs, and fans start spinning but I get no BIOS menu or splash screen, just no signal at all to my TV/Monitor. Just my luck, i've had nothing but problems so far.

If its relevant at all, my Ram had a red LED light, but I cleared the CMOS and re seated the ram and that is no longer a problem but I still get no BIOS or Splash.

Anyone know how to fix it?

Ridiculous suggestions?

Well, does your motherboard have onboard video? See if you get a feed from that?

Has it ever posted before? were you able to get windows installed? The best way to check for problems is isolate parts. so try without a graphics card. Try each stick of ram individually. But I hate to tell you, that this is exactly what happened to me when my mobo broke.

Nope, I just put it together and it never posted. I was going to isolate parts, but I thought a Graphics card and Monitor were needed for it to post, and that I could disconnect all the other parts and try it like that slowly adding each part 1 at a time. Can it post without my Graphics card installed?

I don't believe I have any onboard graphics.

well does it do the post beep at all?

if it doesn't (the post beep is where the motherboard makes one *beep* sound) make a sound take out the video card and just turn it on. and listen for a beep, if there is still no beep then we assume the video card is not at fault... for now

You're right, you don't have onboard graphics.

It might be a memory problem. Try the sticks one at a time.

I tried that, unfortunately nothing changed.

I know this is a long shot, but do any of your friends have, an extra psu, cpu, or motherboard that you could borrow? This is the fun part where you have to check everything to find out which piece is broken.
