no beeps at start up and no signal to monitor

March 8, 2011 at 07:01:34
Specs: Windows 7
I just took the innards apart and cleaned the dust, took out the CPU, disconnected everything and Im putting it all back together as a class project. I got the drive locked and got everything all neatly put back together, power cables, data, etc. The trouble is now that I am not getting any signal to the monitor and it doesn't beep when starting up, like it's not waking up entirely, I really need some help to get this finished, please and thank you!

Do u see or fans spinning? May u didn't install the components well. Did u mess with the motherboard(removing jumpers or board itself)? Try to start the system with necessary components(only cpu with heatsink, stick of ram, psu and monitor).

The fact that you're not getting any beeps indicates a problem with the power supply, motherboard or CPU. Or it could mean that you didn't reconnect the speaker to the motherboard. You didn't bother to list any specs so we have no idea what type of hardware you're working with. I'm assuming you had to remove & replace the heatsink - did you thoroughly clean the top of the CPU & bottom of the heatsink, then apply a fresh dab of thermal paste? It's VERY important that paste is used & it MUST be applied correctly. Choose the CPU from this site, then read the instructions:

Also, you should never hook up everything at once. You should have confirmed that the board/CPU/RAM/video worked before connecting anything else.
