  1. Hi there. I just finished building my new computer and when i boot it up, nothing comes on the screen. All the fans turn on and i see two light on my motherboard light up, one green and one orange. I don't hear any beeps from the motherboards speaker and the cd drive and hard drive both seem to be working fine. I have double checked all the connections already as well. Absolutely any help i can get would be great and appreciated. Here is what I am working with.

    Antec Nine Hundred Case
    nForce 650i Ultra Motherboard
    Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
    EVGA e-GeForce 7600 GT Graphics Card
    OCZ 1GB DDR2-800 (x2)
    SATA 300MB/s Wester Digital 500GB Hard drive

    Try your 7600GT in a different PC and/or another VPU in yours.

    My old motherboard dose not have a pci-e slot. The card cant fit in any of the other slots.

    ..They aren't hard to come by. Ask a friend, a family member or a neighbor. It'll take 5 minutes for you to open their case, insert the 7600GT, attach the monitor and start the PC.

    Did you connect the 4 or 6pin power connector, most modern graphics cards require addittional power.
