How does this comment help our member? Granted this is how we sometime feel but when people are frustrated the last thing they want is something like this.

Now back to the issue - can you please try and boot the machine without any RAM. Can you confirm you get beep codes?

That's if his case has a speaker, I know most cases these days exclude that little feature! Not one computer in my house is capable of creating beep codes thanks to that very reason!

I had this issue when I moved an old E8400 board etc over to a new case for my daughters. What resolved the issue was reseating the RAM. I got no beep codes, no display and no post. It's worth a try

It's always a good idea to do the following before you build:

  • Place MB on top of the box that it came in (inverting the box)
  • Drop in CPU, apply paste, and mount the CPU cooler...connecting the fan(s) to the MB's fan headers
  • Drop in ONE stick of RAM
  • Connect monitor (if you have onboard video...otherwise you also need to drop in GPU)
  • Connect PSU to MB and plug it in
  • Boot...either by using the button provided on the MB or by shorting the terminals as described elsewhere


If it POSTs, power down and then start your build in your case...with GPU, HDD/SSD, Optical, etc. If it does not POST, try a different stick of RAM...perhaps in a different slot.

The main idea - Don't build until you at least verify that the core components are working.

Oh god. I really I hope I didnt >_<. But if that were to happen, can I go to my local computer store and ask for them to fix it?

Heres a pic for example this is my build I havent put it back in its case since its last cleaning.

It should be the same thing except minus 1 stick of ram and the extra gpu.
