  1. hi there, i bought new ocmputer parts for my old computer, i basicly bought almost everything new,

    i bought a

    MOBO: asus P5VD2-x
    2 GB DDR2 RAM
    CPU: Intel E6600
    G-card: 76OOGS 512MB DRR2
    Sata disk 250GB
    i havee a psu that pulls 300W


    okay i assembled this system as normal (i study informatics so i know how to assemble a pc correctly :) )
    and now everything is done good, and when i try too boot it, i hear the fan spinning, but i get no boot sound, no display on my screen, no nothing, just the spinning on my cpu fan...

    so does anybody know how i can solve this or what part of my machine might be broken? thanks in advance

    *edit* what i forgot to say is the motherboard is clearly getting power because there is this blue led on it and it is clearly glowing bright.... so please help me out =)

    Did you try resetting your cmos?

    Did you use the riser pins under the motherboard?

    Do you have both the 24pin AND the 12vATX power connectors connected to your motherboard?

    Does your graphics card require a PSU connection?

    Did you try with just one stick of ram?

    If all of the above are good, and not the cause of your problem then there is a good chance that this is a PSU problem. Your graphics card is a fairly powerful one. 300W is really not enough for the specs of your system.

    Do you have another PSU you can use as a test?
