ok heres my spec before i start motherboard : asus m2n sli deluxe processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6400+ Ram : Corsair 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Graphics Card : Point Of View 7600GT 256mb DDR3 Case : Raidmax Sagitta Black/Silver Gaming Case With Side Window - With 500W PSU Cooling : Thermalright Ultra-120 EXTREME CPU Heatpipe Heatsink with Scythe S-FLEX 1600RPM 120mm Fan basically i bought all of the above and set it up put in my old ide harddrive, and my old dvd writer and my floppy drive all from my last pc. Booted it up it was working fine apart from i got BSOD when trying to boot my windows on my ide harddrive. i think its to do with the ide controller being different from my last pc or something. So i thought well doesnt mater i'll buy a sata drive and install windows save any files from the ide drive and then wipe the ide drive. so i bought a sata drive installed it plugged it in turned on my pc and no signal was going to my monitor. It smelt like it was burning slightly too so i quickly powered off the pc. So i unplugged the sata drive and booted it up but i just get the same no signal to my monitor. The power is running through the motherboard all the fans are on the ide/sata drives spin the graphics card fan is spinning. I have tried taking out and plugging in my graphics card several times but still nothing. Tried it in both my pcix16 slots no difference. Im guessing i burnt something due to the smell but i just don't know what or the reason. Anyone have any idea? i'm thinking its either the motherboard is fried or the graphics card or maybe the cpu?
