Build
NZXT Phantom 410 Case
AMD phenom x6 1045 t
Asus m5a97 motherboard
Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 ti (using the DVI to VGA adapter that the card came with)
8 gb Gskill Ripjaws RAM
Corsair builder series 600w
seagate 1tb hdd

My computer turns on fine, but I hear no beep at all. I made sure the RAM were in the correct slot, reinstalled the gfx card, made sure everything was connected fine, and my monitor seems to just go on standby mode. Since I havent heard a beep yet, im assuming its not the monitor and maybe I should reset the BIOS? (ps, read the troubleshoot guide on tomshardware still nothing)

Sorry if I categorized this wrong, this is probably because I dont know what the real problem is and its my first time building a pc.

make sure the dvi adaptor is in the right dvi slot, becasue if the card has two slots, normally only one will support vga conversion.

Is the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan header?

Wait..so are you able to go into bios? Are you pressing the del key or f2 after you power on? I use an asrock z77 mobo and it only beeps after I press del or f2 to go into bios.

my keyboard is completely unresponsive, but i tried it on another computer and it works

My Cpu fan, and GFx fan are all working properly and from my knowledge everything is plugged in correctly. Would using the jumper on my motherboard and/or resetting the BIOS by removing the battery be of any help?

Have you made any recent changes to the computer?

EDIT: Just read the title of this post.... Ok, so is everything new? Or just a part or two?

reset cmos first, if that doesn't help check if the PSU is ok.
