Specs: Windows XP, Phenom 5500
I just built a brand new system. New motherboard ( ASUS M3N72-D) New Processor AMD Phenom 5500. I started up my computer and there is no video no matter what I do. I tried 3 different PCI Express cards in both slots and I also tried onboard VGA video. Im not sure what to do?

is the motherboard green led light on ? can you get into the bios ?
if nothing run through the motherboard setup use in the manual, check cpu fan is connected, & the 4 pin atx12v header are correctly plugged in (top left of mobo)etc.

Asus q connector has the power switch (pwr sw) is it plugged in?

do you get any beeps?
(p3.1 manual)
note: 1 long + 3 short beeps no vga detected.

try a bios (clrtc)reset

all the usual suspects to try 1st.

Most motherboards put out a single beep to indicate a succesful Power On Self Test. If you don't get that beep it probably means the motherboard is not working.

One possible cause for this is installing a motherboard mounting stud where there isn't a hole in the motherboard.

Remove the motherboard and do a bench test.
