I am running thermaltake 650 psu, evga nvidia 7950 gt ko, amd x2 4200 (am2), 2x512 ocz pc2-6400 on asus crosshair motherboard.

I've put everything together and when i boot up, my monitor does not load, blank screen, and no buzz noise when monitor starts. There are no error displayed on the lcd. My monitor is fine, just checked on another computer. All fans and lights are working. I've tried cmos reset, and still same problem. Tried using just one memory stick.

Pull data cables to cd/dvd drives, take everything of that is possible( USB, etc). You should have powersupply, motherboard, CPU, hard drive, one stick of memory, keyboard, mouse, video card, monitor hooked up and nothing else. All PCI cards should be pulled out except video card. Boot computer while hitting the delete key and see if you get to the bios.( blue screen) There you can use the arrow keys and enter key to move around if necessary. While you are there set to boot from the cdrom drive fisrt so you cdan load windows from a cd.

If you cannot get to the BIOS with the minimum setup the first thing to do is replace the video card. You do get a SINGLE BEEPfrom your system speaker, right? Do you have a system speaker on the motherboard? Some motherboads don't have built-in system speakers so you usually have a pair of connector pins for a external speaker. Now is the time to recheck that everything is set in tight on the motherboard and everything connected the correct way. Next up is different memory. After that your most likely problem is the motherboard and it will hve to be RMA'ed back for a replacement .
