Posted on 2005-05-06
having a problem with a system im building im booting for the first time and havent installed windows. i have a athlon 64 3000 winchester, asus a8ve deluxe, XFX Gforce 6600 GT, 1gb of corsair ddr pc3200 RAM, seagate barracuda 140GB SATA, 400 watt antec psu. i started plugging everything together and had the dvi to analog converter to run my 15" lcd. i got fans moving on the case psu processor and vid card. harddrive spins but i do not get to bios the screen remained black. i swapped the lcd for a crt and was given a "please check signal cable" message. i have removed one of the sticks of RAM, disconnected the harddrive and the CD drive and tried to boot again with no luck. this is the first PCIe system i have assembeled and i therefore dont have much experience with PCIe. I would like to finish this project this weekend if possible and any help soon would be appreciated. thanks.
