Okay, so I'm trying to put in some upgrades but I'm stuck. Not sure if I'm just doing something wrong of I have some defective products. I got a new mobo, cpu, ram and dvd drive and just keeping the old hard drive. Here's the new stuff specs: Motherboard Biostar A785G3 Socket AM3 CPU AMD Athlon II X2 260 3.2 Ghz RAM Centon 2GB DDR3-1333 DVD Drive Lite On SATA 24X Internal Well I hook up everything and get nothing on the display. The board has VGA and DVI but I got nothing on two different monitors. I had the same thing happen on a different mobo and returned it thinking it was a video problem but now I'm thinking it's a RAM or CPU problem. The new board has IDE and SATA connections and the old HD is IDE but I don't think that matters yet because I don't get a POST beep. I started it with and without the HD connected. I should at least get a no hard drive connected screen but still nothing. I think the board is recognizing the RAM because I started it without the RAM in and got the constant beeps indicating no RAM installed. However, I don't have any other boards taking DDR3 to be sure.
