I've started a new build today, installed the mobo, psu and fan, ram and graphics card. Switched it on, nothing on the screen. Here is the spec:
Gigabyte GA-p65p-ds3 motherboard
e6400 core 2 duo processor
2 x 512 mb ddr2 800 ram
galaxy 7600 gt 256mb pcie graphics card
The graphics card only has dvi outputs (2 of) so I am using the dvi to vga adapter that came with it to connect it to my vga monitor.
Also, just to let you know, the cpu fan (stock hsf) does not start straight away when the power goes on, it turns a little but then starts running a few seconds later. Is this normal due to detecting heat and then starting the fan?
I have not connected any hard disks yet, just trying to see post and bios. Please help!
EDIT: I checked to see if the graphics required additional power, but there is no connection for this on the card, I resetted the cmos, I took it all out of the case and just have it on the anti static bag with just the cpu, ram and graphics plugged in, still nothing on display.
The monitor does work on other systems.
