SG41J1 Plus V2 no graphic signal

Hello everyone,
I just bought the following system:

- SG41J1 Plus V2
- 2x 4GB DDR3-1066 modules
- Intel Duo Processor E8500
(HDD and DVD Rom probably not the cause for the issue!?)

I plugged in everything and powered up the system - and it stays just pitch black. Monitor (connected to the onboard VGA port) says "no signal" and goes to standby. I have tried to swap the memory modules, put in just one, swapped that again, but no luck so far.

Checked this post

but since the CPU does not have PINs anymore ;)

Also checked this post
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Components/Motherboards/A_1945-Short-overview-of-how-to-troubleshoot-bad-hardware-when-a-pc-does-not-post.html
=> RAM has been swapped
=> other components (HDD) do get power as they start spinning. No power as it seems for e.g. keyboard
=> monitor is ok, works fine on a different PC
=> cannot swap CPU

So far I am pretty much lost. It's not the first system I ran into problems with when putting them together, but the first one I am stuck at this early point in time. So any help would be appreciated!!

Cheers!

Hi,

thanks for your response.

Not sure what you have been wanting to tell me with the URL you sent as I was not planning on buying a new graphic card just for testing purposes ;)
I did find an old WinFast 8600GT and connected that one to the PCI-E slot getting the same results as before. No signal :(

I do not even get to the bios. I cannot see "anything" - just no signal from monitor, VGA and DVI tested. And no worries about not being more clear about the link ;) figured that one out :)

Yes, I only have the WinFast 8600GT here to test actually. But since I did now spend the entire weekend on testing, I will return it DOA. Thanks for the hints anyhow!
