Monitor has no signal

  1. I have recently built a new PC here are the stats.

    INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6600
    ASROCK SKT-775 CONROE945G-DVI
    2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM
    A 500W PSU

    Basically when I start it up the monitor has no signal, and the light just flashes. I've tried multiple monitors to no avail. I'm using the graphics card thats built into the MoBo. Also all these parts are brand new.

    Anyone has any ideas would be much appreciated.

    I read where you MUST use the 12v 4 pin atx connector to power on the graphics.

    You got that?

    Yeh its plugged in! So that can't be the problem can it?

    Well, you should check you have the stand-offs between the motherboard and the case mount in the proper places so you aren't shorting anything.

    edit: reseating the ram might also be a worthwhile check at this point - new systems can be a task. Any beep codes going on?

    No beeps but fans etc all working ok!

    Could it be the internal graphics card is damaged?

    New system? Possible, not probable.

    Did it EVER boot or show bios screen?

    There should be at least one beep I think during early post after self tests.

    Is the power supply on correct voltage (220 and 120 switch).

    Have you removed and re-inserted the 20 and 4 pin connectors and the ram and the DVI connector etc?

    The DVI connector is where your video comes out on that mobo. :)
