Just received a rather simple computer (still in the "building" process) from a friend ... and trying to fix it with a limited amount of resources ...

CPU: Intel LGA775 3.0 Ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-8I915PL-G
Memory: Kingston 512M DDR400
Video card: PNY with two monitor ports
Other items include: HD, CD-ROMS, KB, Mouse

When starting the computer, psu fan and cpu fan goes, but no POST screen on the monitor

-chassis doesn't have a built-in speaker, no idea of whether there are beeps or not
-checked power supply cable, both the 12 pin and the 4 pin are connected
-Tried swapping psu and video card individually, same thing
-Tried clearing the CMOS and even removing the battery, doesn't help
-with ps2 keyboard and usb mouse connected, get NO LED indication from neither when power is supplied

notes on the side: hard drive, cd-roms, floppy aren't connected

I am suspecting that the the problem is the motherboard, anyone with a better idea?

and man ... a port 80 card would have been handy in situation like this .... :tazz:

help help!! thanks.

To be honest, this is going to be really hard to trouble shoot without a case speaker or buzzer connected. Is there any way you can get one or even borrow one from another computer temporarily?
