some generic ram from my old computer. DDR333 512mb. I will upgrade
this when I find the ram I want.
amd 64 3000+
WD SATA 200 gig hard drive
SilenX 520W PSU
BFG 6600GT OC video card
Antec P160 case. The case doesn't come with a speaker believe it or
not so I stole one from my current computer.
I bought a new computer, put the whole thing together, hit the power button aaaaaand.... the fans turned on, the pretty blue lights on my case and video card, and that's it. My monitor didn't power up, no beeping, no sounds like it's running from the HD from what I can tell. I tried turning it off and it just stayed on. Held the power button down, nothing. Tried reset, nothing. So I pulled the cord. That's the only thing that seems to turn this computer off.
Now here's what I've tried so far:
-reset CMOS, as per your description on your website
-removed everything and put it back
-removed everything but the PSU, CPU, GPU, and HD from the motherboard and rebooted.
-checked the orientation of the cord from the power and reset button and pulled out the reset button cord in case it was jammed or something, restarted, same thing.
-pulled out the video card (GPU) and restarted to see if it beeped. No sound
-pulled out the ram and restarted, no beeps
-pulled out both to see if there were any beeps, no beeps..... (checked the speaker, definitely working and plugged in correctly)
I did a search online for this problem and didn't find anybody who got quite the same problem as mine. They usually had beeps at least, especially with no ram or video card plugged in!
Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
