Upgraded build, No video signal, cpu fan doesn't spin
Jan 23, 2013, 11:35 PM
Today I upgraded my PC with a new CPU, aftermarket heatsink and a new GPU.
When I try to boot, lights come on on all the components and the case fans spin. I also hear what I think is the harddrive booting up. Unfortunately, I have two problems.
1. No video signal. I tried swapping back in my old GPU (HD 6790) that was working yesterday and still no signal.
2. The new fan for the CPU spins for a couple of seconds and then stops.
Does anyone have any ideas for me? The CPU fan is plugged in. The case has no speaker so I can't listen for the BIOS post.
CPU: AMD FX-4170 Zambezi 4.2GHz Quad core

Mouse lights up as well. Really looks like everyone is running but that fan and no video signal

Reseting CMOS and booting with only 1 stick of RAM didn't work either
