Remove all drives or disconnect entirely. Now boot and if no display, then something remains either faulty or badly configured. Test the monitor on another PC, does it work?
You can try the reset the bios to defaults, bu using the "clearing pins", thus review the manual for what it takes to do this. If the monitor still doesn't display, then the mtrbd. is somehow bad or some incompatibility exists. be 100% sure, no shorts or contacts on the mtrbd. are present on its backside, check!!! Alas, be 100% sure that the cpu is supported, if the manual states it is, maybe you need a bios update to fully support to the level it needs in order to do so. It all this takes too long, return the mtrbd. for replacement or try yet a different one.
Hello, I am new to this forum, and building computers. I just finished my first build, and there is no picture, the fans just whirr and the motherboard LED lights.
Here are my specs:
Mobo: ASUS M5A78L-MX
CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 3.3GHZ
Case: CiT Recon mATX case
RAM: Kingston ValueRAM 2GB DDR3 1333MHZ
HDD: WD1200JB 120GB 7.2k RPM (this is rescued from an old DELL Dimension PC and fitted with an IDE to SATA adapter.
Everything apart from the HDD is new.
I am using the integrated ATI Radeon 3000.
They can be returned within 14 days as they are from Amazon (.co.uk) and Ebuyer.
I have tried removing the SATA for HDD. Same problem. I removed the RAM and HDD. Same problem. I reformatted the HDD in the old Dell. If I get the build working, it should display the No OS detected BIOS message, like it did in the DELL. I will try any other suggestions. Thank you.
