New PC Issues

  1. Hey,

    I just built a new pc, have built a few in the past but this is the first sli one i have done. But when i go to start it up only the fans start running as far as i can tell. Havent heard any beeps or whatnot to indicate active bios. Here is the build

    Mobo: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?Sku=S458-1240
    CPU:
    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16819115013
    RAM: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?Sku=ULT40050
    Vid Cards: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?Sku=P450-7950

    It should all work together, thinking maybe I may need to clear the CMOS or something. Suggestions are welcome!

    Yeah the CMOS might actually be it, some motherboards come with the CMOS pin in reset mode by default. ASUS used to do that to me a lot, its irritating.

    You could have a bad PSU/Mobo/CPU as well, though.

    I have tried everything i can think of. Running barebones, resetting cmos, reseating the cpu and whatnot but nothing, no POST even. And yes the Motherboard does have power.

    any suggestions as to determine the issue?
