Hello omnipotent forum overseers, I have amassed these pc parts in the hopes of building my first Intel system, before my previous 3 builds were AMD.
I put the system together without placing the GTX 570 in because the board has built in vga port and I wanted to test that out before placing my card in. However when turning the system on I get nothing through my monitor. The system does no fully power on. The onboard DRAM led flashes when I turn my system on and then it stays off.
I have swapped out all my ram sticks placing only one in my A2 slot as advised in the manual to no avail. The 6GB version of my ram is compatible so i assume the 12GB version will be aswell. I placed a different 2Gb kingston ram stick in and it still did not post.
We have a troubleshooting guide that was designed for this exact type of problem. Please perform ALL the steps in the checklist and let us know how it goes. There's a link to the checklist in my signature.
