Lights are on, but no one is home

  1. Ok, just finished building my PC, but when hit the on button, all the fans spin, the lights light up, the gauges work but nothing comes up on the screen. it just says no video. So I stripped the computer down to just the motherboard, cpu/fan, and psu, switched it on and still nothing. I tried the power supply out of my old computer, same thing. The motherboard leds are all lit up, including a digital number readout that just says 88. No beeps, no sound, nothing.

    My motherboard is: http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/motherboards/1801_1.html

    My cpu is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...rat3-_-Processors+-+Desktops-_-AMD-_-19103285

    I'm beginning to think either the board is bad, or it can't support the high wattage of the processor. Anyone have any ideas?

    Are you using a dedicated on onboard video adapter?
