I've put together my new computer and am truly enjoying the night lights the leds are providing. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P using a Wolfdale 3.16 cpu. I've yet to receive a beeping sound from the motherboard. I have all of the leds diagnostic lights on the board shining. But no video. The motherboard apparently is not connecting to the Video card. EVGA 512-P3-N956-TR GeForce 9500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 I have a couple of questions to ask: 1. When connecting the power cable to the motherboard I'm seeing in the owners manual reference to two power connections on the board. I've connected the 24 pin power connection to the board but the four pin connection I'm not clear as to if this is supposed to be connected with the 24 pin connection or is it an alternate choice one may use rather than the 24 pin connection? 2. Regarding the mentioned video card. I'm seeing a six pin male area on the card that appears as if it would take a power connection. I have looked over my connections on my power supply, Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU 500W ATX 12V 2.0 Power Supply and am not seeing a connection that would go together with this arrangement. Reading the manual on the video card, it does not mention a recommended additional power connection. My problem is that when turning on the computer I'm not hearing any beeps and not showing a post from the monitor. This is about it for now. Greatly appreciate whatever suggestions anyone might have as to why my new computer is not posting.
