Hi, i just finished building my PC this is what i have:


Asus p8h77 -m/CSM
two corsair ddr3 4 gb RAM
Western digital cavar blue 500gb sata 3 harddrive
Asus sata optical drive
a ASUS Radeon hd 7750

All of it is hooked up..

I plug in my monitor from my old pc to the new build cross my fingers and turn it on... It came on but my monitor had no signal... So i reseat the ram cause i heard you do that, made sure everything was plugged in right and it all is... far as i know.

try it again still no signal so i said F*ck it... and hooked it up to my tv thru HDMI (since that was what i was gonna do in the first place. Magically it boots up i see the ASUS flash on my screen and i see it say press DEL for bios i do... Never pops up... i do this multiply times... nothign shows up. so then i boot it again to see what happens if i let it go thru on its own start up i get hit with "Reboot and select Boot media" Blah blah so idk what the hell that means so i hit any key... Then i get a bright idea i put in the ASUS CD that came with the MOBO, Then i get what i think is progress and i get stumped it says i need to select one of the three things something like 32 bit, 64 bit and something else (sorry im at my laptop doing this with the pc off) ALL I WANNA DOIS PLAY ARMA 2 lol So... Someone with some mastery skill greater than mine please HELP ME!!!! =)


Thanks

-Eric

Sorry to hear. You need to buy a OS. No way around it. Luckily windows 8 is cheap.
