No Signal

  1. For some reason, anytime I try to boot my brand new self-built computer, I don't get a signal.
    I have two theories, it's either the motherboard or the video card. I don't think it's the video card. They're both OEM and pretty expensive for a man on a budget, and it would be a shame to have to replace either of them.
    I tried seating the card in the slave SLI slot, but that didn't help. I think it's the motherboard, because the CMOS has been acting funky, too. Any suggestions?\

    What is the amp rating on the +12V Rail of your power supply?

    +12V1 is 16 amps.
    +12V2 is 18 amps.
    -12V is .8 amps.
    Don't think that's it. System worked fine (arguably) until just very recently, when I tried to reinstall XP. I've got another thread on the XP installation error.
