Ok, I'm not the best and building computers and am very new at it. My fresh build will boot but display absolutely nothing on the monitor, by nothing I mean it won't even go to bios or turn the power light from standby to on. This build will boot up, all fans will run with no problems (including cpu and video card fans), and everything will shut off by holding down the power button properly. Also I have not gotten any light or beep codes. Here is what I have: asus m5a97 motherboard amd fx 6-core processor black edition asus gtx550 ti direct cu video card ddr3 8gb (2x4gb) 1600MHz dual corsair vengeance ram 700 watt xion xio power supply sata 1tb barracuda hard drive dvd/cd - writable drive cm storm scout case I have tried trouble shooting programs for the motherboard and video card, with no results . I have tried resetting the rtc ram I have double checked the power plugs are plugged in properly and making a proper circuit I have taken everything out except the motherboard, cpu, cpu fan, and power supply and still gotten no beeps. I have tried changing how the stupid speaker wire connects, connecting incorrectly according to the manual and still no freaking beeps I have tried using hdmi and vga cords connected to my tv that supports pc's and a monitor nothing worked cord wise but my old pc worked like a dream when connected to them. when talking to tech support for the motherboard they helped me check that it wasn't a grounding issue. I have talked to all my pc buddies called tech support and no one can tell me anything i haven't tried or that has worked. I have no idea what is wrong, I need help, I have spent the last two day all day working on this with no clue what is happening.
