Setting up a new computer
Posted on 1998-12-29
I have just purchased and assembled the following components for a new computer.
INWIN ATX Case w/235W Power Supply
Gygabyte 6BXE MB
Western Digital HD 5 GB
Intel Pentium II Processor 350 MhZ
Diamond Viper Video Card (AGP) 16 MB Memory
Creative Labs PCI 128 SB Sound Card
Pny 64 MB DIMM PC100 Memory
Digital Research 36X CD ROM
I have all original setup disks for all hardware components and original Boot Disk and CD for Windows 95.
What do I do to begin configuring the system. I understand I have to set up CMOS before I can set up the hard drive or install Windows. I powqered the system and pressed delete to access setup but got no video response. The keyboard, CD ROM and HDD LED lights all appear to respond appropriately.
Could this be a jumper setting problem or faulty hardware or am I not using the right procedure. What do I do first.
