Problem booting computer

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just got all the parts for my computer. I put them all together, plugged everything in, and turned it on. But all I get is a blank screen on the monitor. No beeps or nothing.
My friend came over to give me a hand, but we couldn't figure out the problem. We weren't able to get the to the BIOS or anything. He reset the battery thing. (?) And I don't know what to do.
Could there be a problem with my motherboard, graphics card, power supply, or memory? How do I know what the problem is? Should I get my friend to let me use his computer to test my parts? Or should I send it in to get it looked at by a somebody?
Some help would be nice.

What power supply are you using?

Since you have 2 sticks of RAM, run each one by itself on each RAM Slot to see if your RAM is the cause.

One thing you may want make sure of, is that the 4-pin cable from your psu is plugged into your mobo to power your cpu.

I accidently overlooked that when I built my rig and my system wouldnt boot at all.

I'm going through the same thing right now. I would suspect the motherboard. I have checked all plugs, reseated everything (except the CPU) and still nothing. No beeps no anything. When I first plugged in everything and flipped the switch for power (without pressing the power button on the front) all the fans came on, so I unplugged the power and pulled the battery out for 10 min and then put it back in. Now it dosen't turn on the fans till I press the power button on the front. I am lost. It is a P5N32 SLi Deluxe with the NForce 4SLi chipset.

I'm using this power supply...

I tried using one of each stick of RAM in different slots, and still nothing. And the 4-pin cable seems to be connected properly. Should I take everything out of the case and put them back in and check each connection?

You could. I think it is the motherboard.

I took out the graphics card, RAM, hard drive, CD drive, and motherboard. Put everything back and connected all the cables. Turned it on, and still nothing.
Maybe I could return the board and get another one?
