Hi, I'm a relative newbie to building computers and i was hoping you guys could help with my problem. I've removed a ASUS A7V-E motherboard (with cpu) and RAM and video card from an older computer and reinstalled it in a new case (an Acousticase). I've connected the cpu heatsink, case fans, and ram and power and when I turn it on, all the fans come on, but the video never comes on. I don't hear any beeps at all. The computer keeps running until I shut it off manually by pressing down the power button. I have connected the SPEAKER connection to the right place on the motherboard. I have also used new thermal paste on the cpu, although I could not successfully remove all the old dried paste which is around the cpu. I'm wondering if I'm forgetting to connect some essential cable somewhere without which the comp. will not fully turn on? It was all working fully in the older computer and I don't think it could have been damaged somehow (I transported it myself in thick bubble wrap). Since I'm a bit new to this I also have a stupid question: when you connect those POWER, POWER SW, SPEAKER connections, etc from the case to the motherboard, is there a certain direction in which you are supposed to orient them? Or does it not matter? I'm just not sure which direction to plug them in. The manual for the motherboard can be found at the link below. I'm just linking it here so if anyone wants they can check it and tell me if I'm missing some essential connection or if I'm doing something wrong. http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socka/kt133/a7v-e/a7ve-101.pdf thanks for any help.
