I just put this system together tonight and I am going out of my mind! I got the gigabyte 8sq800 ultra 2, the sinxp, and I plugged everything in and nothing is happening. I get fans, and the ram led, and the power led, and the harddrive led flashes, and the cd rom looks for a cd, because the hd is empty, but I see nothing!!!! There is no regular bios beep either. . . . I got a 9700 pro all in wonder and I cannot get video to work on it at all. I tried a different monitor and nothing! I put the all in wonder in a different system and it works, so its not the video card. It will just never show video in the sinxp. I tried everything I read around like take out everything except cpu and see if i get anything, and all that and tried using only one stick of ram. nothing! I tried taking out the battery to reset bios and still nothing. This is a brand new bare system, nothing on the HD, i was going to load the os and partion everything tonight. Does this seem like a bad motherboard problem? Please help me, I want to get this thing running!

I am supposed to just be able to put in the agp card and have that boot right? there is no onboard video on the sinxp so I don't see how there would be any other way. Right? And I am not even getting any beeps or anything so it has to be the mobo right?
I guess I will RMA this and hope it works this time. .
