Tried to put together a new computer today it contains:
ASUS M2NBP- VM CSM motherboard
AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+ Dual Core AM2 cpu
Corsair 1GB DDR2-533 PC4200 memory
ASUS 7600GS video card
Have harddrives from older computer

Push the power button lights come on can hear the harddrives turning but nothing comes up on the monitor. Would really like some suggestions on what it could be the only thing i can think of is that the motherboard or cpu are broken. I have spent the last hour or so making sure everything was plugged in properly.

According to the information i find on the motherboard you have on-board Nvidia Geforce6 video, and from your post you have installed a Nvidia 7600 video card.

Have you disabled the on-board video in the BIOS so the motherboard will use the 7600 video card for the video?

I cant even get to the BIOS to do that. I have tried plugging the monitor into the on board video card and still nothing. Nothing gets displayed on the monitor. There are no beeps from the motherboard.

Have you tried removing your 7600 GS and just using the on board video to see if you can at least get into the BIOS/get it to boot like that?

Do you have power connected to the 24 and 4 pin connectors on the motherboard?

Have you tested the monitor on a working system? It could possibly be faulty. If the monitor isn't the problem, then try replacing the cable to see if that is the issue.

Yes i have tested the monitor on a working system and it works fine. I believe it to be the motherboard i have tried making the motherboard beep by some suggestions in other threads but no beeps. The cpu fan is running the green light on the motherboard comes on when psu is turned on. I am going to exchange the motherboard now and will post if that corrects the problem.
