Hello there! I recently upgraded my pc by buying a Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 Socket AM2 andAMD Athlon X2 5200 motherboard CPU combo. Upon recieving these items I then discovered my current Power Supply wasnt good enough as i needed a 24 pin ATX connector rather than my current 20 pin. I also realised my Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 wasnt good enough as it wasnt PCI express. So, i purchased a 24 pin 500w PSU, (Jeantech Orchid) and a GeForce 8500 GT PCI Express card. I put these things together, Motherboard and CPU (came pre set up and was tested by 2 seperate people before i recieved it) new video card, new power supply and 1gb DDRII memory. I got power to system fans, the cpu fans, video card fan, but nothing else, but nothing to my monitor (so i tried another monitor - nothing). I have since replaced my video card with a friends, tried his power supply (600w) and all other combinations, but still nothing to my monitor. Ive tried using the additional PCI EXPRESS 4pin power socket but still nothing. My case speaker is plugged into the motherboard but makes no beeps. The manual says the motherboard has its own beep code which will diagnose the problem with the motherboard, which implies it has its own speaker which isnt sounding, and the case LEDS dont seem to get any signal. Ive contacted the seller i got the combo from but i fully believe that it was thoroughly tested before i recived it. Theres always the danger it was damaged in transit but the packaging was fine and nothing looks at all out of place there. Theres also the danger that i am not doing something totally obvious, but any suggestions would be so VERY gratefully appreciated. I wasnt wanting to spend a major amount on this upgrade but so far its cost a fortune!!!
MANY thanks for any help at all.
