I posted this in an other topic asswell.

I need your help, can you help me please?

I builded my own pc, it works fine and plays great.
A neighbour of mine asked me if I could build her a pc too, i thought i could do that. She bought the stuff I selected and i got my parts. Soon after i finished building, i started installing. Nothing on screen exept for check cable connection. I checked it, i put my videocard in again. Nothing. I tested the videocard in my pc, works fine. I tested the monitor, works fine. I removed everything from the mainboard exept for the videocard, processor, psu, powerswitch and pcspeaker: nothing. I reinstalled the cpu and heatsink. nothing.


Im getting kinda despared, i hope you can help my. Im afraid to reset bios/cmos for its a new mainboard and i dont wanna mess with it.

Please help me

i can't get a good picture of the board to be sure..but that board may have an onboard video card....on the back of the machine...are there two places to plug a vga monitor into? one down where you put the AGP card in...and one up near the power plug?

Have you a speaker attachd to the mainboard so you can hear the beep code errors if you dont have a cpu, memory or vid card on the board there should be an error and some beeps. No beeps with either one of those conditios and a working speaker attached is a bad sign and its easiest just to send the board back to the manufacturer and get a new one(its the thing about electronics its kind of a black art sometimes they are good sometimes they are bad)

What psu do you have?

its a while ago and i forgot all about this forum, i tried the pc with some of my ram and it worked, so just bad ram, thats all. I switched the ram with my pc, and i have an asus with AI stuff on it, and as soon as i booted the pc it literally said "cpu overclocking failed". I put my ram back in and it worked smooth, so i changed the ram in store and the pc works fine now.
