I just got my new computer components yesterday,
Asus M5A97 Pro
AMD FX8350 4ghz - AM3+ socket
Kingston 4GB DDR3 1866mhz
I have an 620w Ace PSU and my old ATI Radeon HD4850 512mb graphic card.
I assembled it today(not a beginner, have done this many times), and pressed the start button..
The fans start spinning (including the graphic card) but nothing happens, my monitor dont get any signal..
I have tried with another monitor and have also checked that the monitor works in 2 other computers..
All cables are connected, 8pin ATX 12v(have also tried only to use the 4pin cable) and the 24pin cable.. The CPU fan is connected to "CPU Fan" on the motherboard and the graphic card's
6pin power supply is also connected..
The graphics card works on my other machine (Athlon 64 X2 6400+, Asus M2A-VM)..
There is no beeps, cause I dont have such a device.. neither in my case(or any of my other cases) and it wasent included with the motherboard
There is four LED on my motherboard that would indicate if there was a problem..
HDD led, CPU led, Memory/dram led and VGA led..
When I press the power on button on my case, the CPU LED (and the 2 LEDs on my graphic card) turn on for about a half second or so..
What I have read about that, is that it is normal and are supposed to do that..
After the half second no LED is on(except the green one indicating power) so there shouldt be any problems..
I have reassembled it all, cpu, cpu cooler(have tried both stock cooler and my Noctua NH-D14), cables, graphic card, memory sticks,
the cables to the power switch, reset switch and so on.. I have also tried only to have the power switch connected..
I have tried with memory and without memory.. I have also tried to test the motherboard out of the case.. no difference..
And as I said, the graphic card works fine in my other machine.. (it is a PCI Express 2.0 x16 by the way)
I have done and checked everything(about 5 times..) in http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-261145_13_0.ht...
I have read the manual nearly 10 times now..
I have spent the last 12 hours on this and Iam out of ideas, what can it be?
Everything "seems" fine, no leds on or blinking, and the PSU and graphic card works with my other machines..
