I installed all the parts correctly (As far as i can tell). The computer boots fine, gets to the motherboard boot screen. I can access the BIOS. The CPU/RAM is registering fine. The hard drive is registering. The CD/DVD player is registering.
I burned an ISO of Windows 7 Professional x64 onto a disk, and put it in the CD player. Every time I attempted to boot from the disk, the monitor signal cut out. The rest of the computer stayed on, CPU/graphics cards fans stayed on, System fans stayed on, but there was no signal to the monitor. I tried again with a different disk, same result. Tried again with an Ubuntu v 10.04 disk, same result.
Is this a graphics card issue, a CPU issue, a hard drive issue, or a CD issue?
