|got my new build working perfectly this morning, then i went to work and when i got back (computer had been off) i had a new cable in the mail (i ordered a fan and didnt' have the right cable for it).|
i opened it up, installed the thing, and when i tried to turn it on my monitor stayed off.
so i immediately undid the changes i made and tried to boot up again, and it still didn't work.
i thought maybe i banged the video card or something so i checked the pci-e connection and it was fine.
i thought the monitor might be the problem, cables or whatever, so i checked everything, it was fine (i'm on it now on another machine).
so... whats the problem?
i took out the pci-e video card and did the clear-cmos jumper, tried to boot via the onboard video and still nothing.
everything sounds like it starts, but nothing shows up on the monitor... what's going on??
I removed all cards, drives, and ram, turned it on and heard a steady beep.
turned it off, put the ram back in, and nothing.
