I'm having a problem with the video. Everything else in the system works (cpu heatsink, gpu fans, system lights, psu fan) except the video doesn't show up. I've tried plugging in the hdmi to the gpu and mobo. Then I tried using a VGA on both, but nothing works. Any solutions? Thank you.

check the bios rev mb. bios has to be 1.20 to post with your cpu. check that the mb is not shorted out and the 4/8 pin atx power is connected.

some mb have a rev bios sticker on the box or on the mb or on the bios chip itself. sometime you have to email the mb vendor and the ser# of the mb. they can look up by the board date code. the bios rev that is has on it.
