I am new to computer building and am having a problem with my first build. I have checked the threads and while I know there are many posts that are similar to this one, almost all seem to have been resolved with solutions that are not working with my build.
The problem is as stated in the subject: brand new build will not post, no beeps to indicate ANY activity. The case fans and LED lights work, the CPU fan works, the power and reset buttons on the mobo come on but that's it. The Graphics card does not seem to be responding and my monitor states "no VGA signal". The mouse and keyboard are not lighting up either. Further more, the power button on the case can turn the system on but not off. I have to turn off the PSU to get it to shut down.
I've doubled checked all the jumper connections, I am positive that I installed the CPU properly, I've tried stripping it down to the bare essentials and still nothing.
At this point I am beginning to wonder if I bought a defective mobo or cpu but I do not know how to tell for sure aside from sending them both back to the manufacturer for testing.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced.
These are my specs:
-ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
-GeForce GTS 250 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 -CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V
-Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz
-OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
-Western Digital RE3 WD1002FBYS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
-ASUS VW224U Black 22" 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor
- Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA Model AD-7240S-0B - OEM
-NZXT Alpha Black Steel ATX Mid Tower
p.s. none of my current computer hardware is in any way compatible with my new set up so I cannot test my new components on my old comp.
