Hi all - just built a new pc to these specs: cpu - intel q6600 2.4ghz mobo - gigabyte p35c-ds3r ram - 2x apacer 2gb ddr2 800mhz video - gigabyte pci-e 512mb 8500gt (gv-nx85t512hp) hdd - Western Digital 500gb SATA optical - pioneer 20x SATA dvd-rw case - antec nine hundred psu - antec earth watts 500w Unfortunately, I don't seem to be getting a signal to the monitor. I'm using an old LG 775 (which was working fine on my old rig yesterday) and when I boot I can hear the monitor start up and click, but all that happens is that the black screen just gets a little more luminous. The speaker I hooked up emits one short beep to show that the machine is booting up ok, but of course with no display I can't view POST or enter the BIOS settings. I've tried a different analog monitor and have tried a vga to dvi-i adaptor to see if the vga port on the video card was stuffed. No luck. I don't have a spare pci-e card to swap out to see if my new video card is not working. Oh, there's no onboard video on the mobo. I guess that my brand new video card could be a dud, but I would appreciate any opinion or advice that you could give me. Thanks!
