So I decided to finally upgrade to a new computer. I wanted to customize, so naturally I decided to go ahead and buy my own parts, etc, and build it myself. I bought the following components: BioStar Ta770 A2+ MoBo AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Processor 2Gigs (2x 1gb cards) Corsair RAM 500W Power Supply MSI GeForce NX8800GT 512MB Graphics Card Arctic Cooling Heat Sink 500GB Hard Drive And here's what happened: The plan was to install the new parts into my old computer (which was working great beforehand)...so I attempted, and after removing everything found that the MOBO was not going to fit in the Dell Case...so I got a new case that would fit it. So I decide to put all of the old parts back into the Dell Case and get it operational...old parts are in, ready to boot, press the power...MOBO LED (only 1) is on, fans start to spin, sounds like it's working...but I get no response from the monitor whatsoever, and from what I remember, no beeps from the MoBo...Okay I think, "I'll mess with this after I get my new parts set up..." And so it continues...I put all of my new parts together, everything seems great, I power it up...and the result: No LED indicator lights are on, all fans are spinning, disk tray opens and is operational, I get one beep, which from the handbook is supposed to be "all systems normal", yet no monitor response. I asked a few people and they said that I may have faulty RAM...so I put the RAM in every possible combination of using both and one stick...same result. Some of the things that I should point out is that I really don't have a way of checking old parts vs new parts, as pretty much nothing is compatible between the two...also I only have one monitor, so if that's the problem I really have no way of checking that out. And there is also no on-board video card feature for my MoBo, only place to hook up the monitor is on the Video Card. Lastly, if there are any faulty parts, they would have to be DoA...everything in this baby is brand new except for the monitor, case, and disk tray. Sorry for the long post, and I'd like to point out that I don't know when I can read/reply to this, as I'm on my mom's work computer...may be tomorrow, may be a couple of days...Thanks!
