I just recently put together a system and I am having no luck in getting it running. I've upgraded systems in the past and completly put together systems from used parts, this is the first time I ever put together a system with all new parts. First I bought a Matsonic Mainboard model: MS9377C and bought all the other components according to the Mainboard specs like:
1. CPU: Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz 800MHz 478pin 1MB Tray CPU,OEM
2. Memory: Kingston DDR333 1GB ECC/REG Original Memory
3. Video card: Asus nVidia GeForce 6600 256MB TV/DVI/Dual Head AGP Video Card

My problem is, I don't get any display, it is as if my monitor is not plugged into my video card but I tried another video card and get the same thing nothing. I tried all of the steps up to removing the mainboard from the case with just the video card plugged in with the other minimums and still nothing.
Can anybody out there help me or if you ever ran into this prob. how did you resolve it, spent a lot of $$$$ and I am desperate please help.

No beeps at all???

Try pulling out the ram, or video card. You should get some beeping if either of these are not installed on the motherboard. Make sure the speaker is connected correctly... I know, this is elementary, but it has to be said!
