My father bought a new barebone pc from Tigerdirect and asked me to put it together. Long story short, everything is hooked up correctly from what the manual shows and what I have known in the past but still isn't working. The computer will turn on, fans kick on, hard drive sings a little, disk drive lights up / opens and closes, keyboard lights up but I get nothing on the monitor. I have tried with it hooked up to the integrated video as well as the card that came with the barebone kit and still get nothing. I have taken everything apart and put it back together 5 different times now and still get the same thing every time. The CPU is in the correct position, fan is working and paste is applied. The specs on this kit are listed below;
Mobo - Gigabyte M68MT-S2P GeForce 7025 DDR3 AM3 MB
CPU - AMD Phenom II X2 550 3.1Ghz Black Edition AM3 CPU
Fan - Zalman CNPS7000V(AL)-1-PWM CPU Cooler INTEL/AMD
DVD - Lite ON 24X DVDRW SATA OEM
RAM - ADATA PREMIER SERIES 4GB DDR3 1333MHZ DESKTOP (x2)
HDD - Seagate 1.5TB LP Serial ATA HD 5900/32MB/SATA-3G
Video Card - PowerColor Radeon HD 5450 2GB DDR3 PCIe 2.1 (I have been trying to get PC to work without this installed and will install it later but have also tried with it installed to no avail)
Case - Thermaltake V2 Mid Tower ATX Case with 450W PSU
Any and all suggestions / help is very much appreciated!
Thanks guys and gals!
