Computer not booting up

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have just finish putting together my rig, however it is not booting up. Nothing is showing on the monitor. All fans are working, CPU fan, GPU fan, and 120mm fans are working perfectly. The LEDs on the motherboard are also working.

Specs:

Antec 900
MSI P55A-GD55 P55 LGA1156
Intel Core i5 760 Quad Core Processor Lynnfield LGA1156 2.8GHZ
G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Core i5 1.5V
Sapphire Radeon HD 6850
Coolermaster GX 750w


Sorry if this is the wrong section to ask for help, please move my thread to the correct one.

Do you hear any beep codes? It sounds like something with your graphics card or your monitor. Do you have a spare graphics card to throw in?

No beeps, and my monitor is working 100%, I am on my older rig with pentium. And I don't have a spare graphics card to throw in D:

Go into the case and make sure everything is plugged in properly. Also, check to see if the fan on your graphics card is spinning.

Yup, all fans are 100% working. Everything is plugged in snug. Optical drive is working, hard drive is working, I can hear it spin.
Do I have to take everything apart and reassemble?

EDIT: Could it be the DVI to VGA converter?? But I seriously doubt it though.

Here's a problem I just had recently. I have 3 sets of 2 ram slots. The colors are blue and white. Anyway I had my 3 ram sticks occupying only the blue slots and my computer wouldn't post. Then I moved all of them over to the white slots and it worked perfectly.

What monitor are you using? I know for some reason my monitor does not like to display anything from POST to windows startup when I'm using DVI. No clue why but it doesn't. Try using a different cable and monitor.

It is some old Sharp monitor. By the way, isn't a computer suppose to beep once you turn it on?

Also, I have the Windows 7 Disc popped in the DVD, but still nothing.

Hmm, maybe I should just try one of the 2GB RAM sticks?

EDIT: The motherboard only has the 8 pin and 24 pin power connections right?

EDIT2: You reset the BIOs by just taking out the button cell battery and putting it back in right?
