When you put the system back in the case did you remove the ram from the MB and then reinstall it? The only thing I can think of is that the board sees a memory configuration change which has forced the onboard GPU configuration to change. It's a long shot but I figured I would ask. Other possibilities are a cmos reset caused either by accident or by a bad cmos battery. Either way it sounds like the bios is not remembering the settings.

Why would a cmos reset prevent the monitor from working? Wouldnt that be what needed to be done if in fact he did reinstall the memory?

Because the motherboard handles how the graphics interact with the monitor. A bad cmos may prevent any output from happening. Also reinstalling the memory might create an "unstable" OC kind of thing to happen in the BIOS preventing it from booting. Having lights on but no display usually means it hasnt boot yet.

I see, so then what would be the solution?

Is the cable plugged into the monitor properly? I was just trying to get a display from my graphics card for 10 minutes, then discovered that the cable wasn't actually fully plugged into the monitor. lol

for the memory problem remove ram cmos and stick one stick of ram in. If it boots then add in the rest and all good. If its a bad bios preventing from booting id go for an rma.

ugh, single stick didnt work either...rma seems inevitable.

I'd suggest replacing the CMOS battery which is about 5 dollars and can be picked up at walmart setting the system up on a bench getting it back up. The pull the power. Let it sit for about ten minutes and plug it back up on the bench and see if it still works without the gpu

Hey, I know this sounds stupid, but have you tried plugging in the 7850, get a display, go into bios settings and set the main video to Onboard rather then PCI-E 16x?

Cuz i know some boards default bios it comes with will default the main video to pci-e, thus you get a display with the 7850 and no display when you use the onboard video. Happened to my brother just recently... and yeah lol

That's interesting, maybe this is an APU + ASRock specific issue..

No the system went back into the ITX case fully built, exact same config. When my lil GPU arrives I'll be able to fully test the system while it's installed in the ITX case. Then I can rule out which part is at fault, part of me thinks it's just a specific ASRock issue, soemthing that maybe fixed with a bios update. I'll update when GPU arrives.

Lol, yeah that was how the system was able to work outside of the case, if you read the OP.

I had the system up and running using the onboard GPU and not PCI-E set up in bios. When I transferred the parts into the mini ITX case with the exact same config I got no display again. I took it apart it again and this time the 7850 would not give display either. I've ordered a cheap GPU to test the system properly while it's inside the ITX case, I can rule things out then, problem is Easter weekend, won't get the part till late next week lol. This simple build is turning into nightmare biggrin.gif
