Hey Everyone, My name is Luka, I'm new to the forums and could use some help with a PC I am currently building. Specifications: - Old Mid-Tower ATX Compaq Case - ASUS M2A-VM mATX motherboard - AMD Athlon X2 Dual-Core Processor (Socket AM2) - OCZ 2x2GB ram - NVidia GeForce 9600GT - BFG Tech ATX12v 450Watt What is the problem? After building the entire PC from scratch, when I power up the computer, everything inside the tower is functioning properly(that I can see). CPU fan spins, system fan spins, LED lights on, and the HDD LED light flashes in the front(determining that data is being processed... I think?) so I believe the computer is fully working. EXCEPT, once I power up the computer.... the monitor remains "quite/sleep" the power button is yellow on the monitor. The monitor works with other mobos, graphics card works, and it just seems that the monitor is just not "being turned on" the same time as the computer I tried another monitor with this mobo and the same thing happened. I handled the mobo with care so I really highly doubt any damage was done to it... does anyone know wat could be wrong? EDITED: Also, I am able to turn off the computer by holding the power button for 4s. EDITED: to readdress the problem. The VGA on my OnBoard works but the VGA on my Graphics Card doesnt.
