So I decided to build my own computer and today I got all my parts. I put it all together and of course it isnt working. I have an i7 870, gtx 460, 4 gb ram, and this motherboard:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128412.
It does power on, but I get no input on my monitor. I also am not hearing any beeps at all when my motherboard boots. I took out and reinstalled my video card and still doesnt work.
Needless to say I am freaking out and any help would be amazing.
Unfortunately your motherboard doesn't have integrated video (which is great to check problems with the v.cards)
However you can take a these few steps and see if it gives you video signal:
- replace your video card with another and try again (of course if you have other card available)
- I bet your RAM is 2X2G (btw are you sure is DDR3 you mobo doesn't support DDR2), remove one of your RAM cards and try again, if it still doesn't work swap them and try with only one again.
- unplug everything from the mobo except the PSU, and try again.
If it still doesn't work chances are that your RAM cards have some manufacturing defect, although if you don't have a second video card, we can't discard the possibility of the video card being the source of the problem.
I hope this helps.
