Installed motherboard, no signal to monitor
Posted on 2003-03-29
Hi folks. I wonder if you shed some light on this..
I have built a computer using the following hardware:
Lex BN790E Motherboard
Sound on Board
Supports CPU's Above 2 Gig
AMD XP1800+ Processor
Heatsink & Fan)
256MB DDR PC2100
Samsung 60GB HDD
I installed the motherboard in my new case with new power supply. The CPU was already installed and I attached the heatsink, fan and fan lead to pins. I installed RAM, connected speaker/power switch leads and connected power supply to mainboard. I put the video card in PCI slot 1 and plugged monitor in.
When I switched on the fan started, but no signal to the monitor. I waited for a minute, still nothing. No beeps either. I tried an AGP video card, known to be working, no joy. I tried the card in all PCI slots in desperation, no joy.
I checked all the jumper settings again. Ratio jumpers off (setupable in BIOS (is this correct?)). CMOS okay. CPU front side bus on (100MHZ - default).
All the hardware is brand new apart from the original video card which is known to be working.
What d'you think? Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
