No monitor display - New computer build
Posted on 2007-03-28
I am in the middle of constructing a new computer from scratch and am having some difficulties.
On computer power up, I verfied that the hard drive is spinning up, that the video card is infact recieving power. I have also tried two different monitors on the same pc, neither had a signal coming to them, so I removed the video card (AGP 8x) and tried to use the on board video to see if I could get an image...Nothing there.
I removed the hard drive comm cable (Sata) and didn't get any beeping.
I removed the DDR ram chip and got no beeping.
I then proceeded to remove all the non essential equipment and ran through the gammut of typical testing again.
Any suggestions here?
I have an older, but capable DDR ram stick that I am going to try and I also have not yet tried to flash the CMOS.
The only thing I can think of if these two options do not work is that the mother board (ASUS P5PE-VM) is a lemon.
