  1. Hey everyone, having trouble with a new upgrade..here are my system spec's

    New board upgrade
    GIGABYTE GA-MA790X
    AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto
    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2
    XFX PV-T96G-YHF GeForce 9600 GT 512MB
    Rosewill RP550-2 550W
    Antec Three Hundred Illusion

    Appears to be power to board and video card...all fans power on including cpu.
    But no video signal..any idea on where to start next..
    No onboard video with this motherboard.

    Thanks for any help.

    check your cabling. you should have at least basic video on POST. (even without drivers)

    Ensure the video card has power. (or sufficient power)

    Do you have a motherboard speaker? Any beeps when you power the system up? Ensure that your RAM modules are slotted in correctly (starting from the first slot).
