  1. i just recently put together my new computer and hooked everything up and when i turn it on everything inside was working, but there was no video coming on into the monitor. i unhooked my agp video card and installed an atipci video card and still got no video. Can anybody please give me any suggestions to what's wrong with my computer or does it just mean my cpu is dead? by the way it's 3.0 ghz so that would suck a lot.

    That's more info for you! :)
    Might be the PSU is a bit too weak.
    I pray my usual mantra and suggest to pull plugs of devices you don't need from the power strip your machine and monitor are connected to. Or try a different distribution of power via another strip.
    And keep monitor off before you boot (if possible).
