Iíve been trying to build my own system, however when I boot it up Iím not getting any video output Ė everything seems to be functioning, but thereís nothing on the monitor. The system consists of the following components:
- ASUS P5VD2-X Motherboard
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 CPU (2.13GHz)
- Inno3d GeForce 8600 GTS DDR3 Graphics Card (256Mb)
- 512Mb DDR2 RAM (PC4200)
- 350W PSU
I donít have a system hard drive connected to it at the moment, so I canít tell how far itís getting in the boot process. When I turn the system on the motherboard lights come on and the CPU and graphics card fans start spinning, but thereís no video signal. I only have the basics connected at the moment (Motherboard, CPU, Graphics Card, RAM) so it canít be any external devices causing the problem. The graphics card is connected to a VGA monitor via the DVI-to-VGA adapter that came with the card.
The fact that the fans start spinning makes me think the problem isnít anything to do with the CPU or graphics card, but I really donít know. The graphics card has a 6-pin power connector at the rear which isnít connected to anything at the moment, Iím not sure if thatís necessary or not.
Does anybody have any ideas about what the problem could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
