  1. Hello, I have a problem with the new computer i just built. When i power it on, the monitor doesn't display the bios. It (the monitor) says that it is working fine, and to check the cables. The cables are snug, and nothing is out of place. Please help!

    Then your PC isnt working too well.. it should beep, indicating it works, or it'll also beep indicating it doesnt (different series though). Something is wrong :(

    If you have checked the graphics card try the same with the memory, if the memory is suspect it wont boot at all.

    :wave: Hello & Welcome to TechSpot :wave:

    You could try reseating all cables and the ram...
    It might just be a cable or something that isn't properly connected...
