Finishing up my first build!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am just finishing up my first build ever and overall it went pretty smooth. I was a little nervous doing it because of the cost involved and I am a computer illiterate grandmother lol!
Had some issues with the MB. I was told it would fit in my case but gave me some problems. I ended up top mounting the psu so i lose the big fan on top. Room there for a small one though if I need it. When I got everything put in the case and plugged in, all the lights came on and fans started on the first try. Very happy about that. When I went to connect the monitor I had a major "blonde" moment though and that cost me several hours of chasing my tail. I got a black screen and couldnt figure it out. Ripped apart alot of the build and put it back together, same thing. rechecked all connections etc for the hundreth time and nothing. It turned out to be (and im a little embarassed to admit it), that the wall outlet plug was not tight. shame shame. Now I realize that I forgot a wireless card so have to go pick that up to get on the internet to do my drivers and all then hopefully all will be well. Nothing is OC'd but I may do that soon.
