MB: Asus P5QL Pro
power supply: thermaltake @ 600w
RAM: GEIL Dragon 1066 x 4 x1gb
CPU: Intel core 2 quad 6600 ~ 2.4ghz
gcard: BFG 8800GTS 640mb
Soundcard: Creative audigy
and a BFG Physx card
basically a friend was using this exact layout minus the soundcard physx and gcard. and he had the mobo working with a display he was using a BFG 260 card. He gave me his mobo and ram and cpu because he upgraded to the new I7. Anyway i plugged all my kit in which was working on my old system, and all the fans start up even the one on the gcard (the physx fan is broke) the lights on the ram light up even the one in the cpu and the one on the mobo to say it has power.
after powering the machine on all the kit turns on after a few seconds the fan on the 8800gts starts spinning but there is no output to the screen, i have tried using a ps2 keyboard to get into the bios but no luck. The ethernet isn't lighting up and from the sounds of things its not loading from my HDD's.
Ive tried taking it all apart 2-3 times i've tried different ram and even just swapping to test they all work. i even tested with just the mobo, cpu 1 ram stick and the gcard plugged in, but still no luck.
I'm a college student and really need this computer to work, and i cannot go splashing lots of cash on it.
Thanks for any help, really appreciated.
