Sorry, didn't realize it had no online manual...I've searched online and can't find one. I've taken the entire system apart and bread-boarded it on my table and have played with everything and still BIOS lcd shows FF, which means all is good and yet no video. Could the type of video input affect this? I've used VGA monitors all my life and this board has no VGA input, so I'm using a VGA-DVI adaptor. I'm taking the system in to my local repair shop and have them see what's wrong, don't really want to spend the money on that, but have no choice :-(

Could be a faulty adapter possibly.
Might be a faulty motherboard connection for the video.

SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After I reseated everything and still no video, I decided to use my bigscreen tv and hooked up the HDMI input and it works!!! Now I guess I have to go buy an HDMI monitor. Thanks guys for all your help and input, it was much appreciated.

Not so much a HDMI monitor but does your motherboard have a digital connection for the monitor? Just get a newer LCD flat screen and it will have both the Analog and Digital connections on it for the most part. You can then use the direct digital cable included with the monitor.
With that being said the only decision is how big and how much do you want to spend. :lol: :whistling:

Ah if only the UK had Newegg :upset:

I am pleased to see that you have made progress, not sure where in the world you are Daniel but I found a decent buy here in the UK http://www.dabs.com/...7NPZ.html?src=2
