Problems with new PC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I recently ordered parts from newegg to finish my custom pc. I got everything put together but when I turn it on the fans spin and everything but the screen says there is no connection and nothing happens. I know it's not the graphics card, ram or psu because I've been using those in my brothers pc and they work just fine. I figured it was either the cpu or the motherboard so I sent both back and the new ones arrived a few days ago. Made sure to put everything together correctly and still no connection to the screen. I tried putting the ram in different slots and also tried putting the graphics card in the other slot, nothing seems to work. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
My build:
GPU: Radeon hd 6850
PSU: Thermaltake 600w
CPU: AMD|PH II x4
Mobo: Biostar TA970
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb

All sticks of ram work fine in another PC?

Try setting the PC up outside the case, on like a wood desk, or something on-conductive. It sounds almost like there is a short of some sort happening in your case, taking it out of the case eliminates that issue. Make sure to keep standoffs on the motherboard when doing this.

what cable are you using to connect? VGA, DVI HDMi etc?? maybe it's a bad cable.

are you able to see anything on the initial start up?
are there any beeps at start up?
does that mobo have an LED post code? if so where does it stop?

I definitely agree that this sounds like a grounding issue. pull the mainboard with ram chip and heatsink installed out of the case then try to apply power with the power supply connected and see if it posts that way. use the top of your mainboard box as that is antiseptic and then use a small flatbread screwdriver to shirt the 2 pins for the power switch. if it posts then you know something wasn't grounded
