Need help new computer build wont start up

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
hey all i just got my deliver from newegg.com and i order a Amd 1090T and a asus crosshair 4 forumal mobo....and i put on a dual ati 6950 and i also put on a xspc rasa cooling kit ..also with a cooling block to the north and south bridge of the mobo.....

now when i start it up the lights in the computer turn on... i feel the fan on the ati cards spinning... but i get no video. no screen at all... now the connector on the cards are hdmi ..and my lcd monitor use's vga.. but i had a adaptor that can put on the graphic card to let me connect my vga end to it.......oh and there are buttons on the mobo that light up.. one is a start button(wich i did press a few time) a over clock button and a nother one but they all light up so dont belive the mobo is dead...

oh but i dont know if this means anything or not but the only way to turn it it off is to kill the main power switch on the power supply...because when i try to restart it the power button or restart switch does nothing....



the only thing missing is a dvd/cd burning cause that one i had used the ribbon connector and the mobo does not have a connector on it for that so i need to grab a stat drive base dvd/cd burner....

Is there a way you can bypass that hdmi to vga connector by hooking your card to the monitor via the cards other connectors, that will bypass the adapter. Also, if you have two cards in XF make sure you use the top card to connect to the lcd.

well what i did was with the cards i frist booted it up with both cards.. then tried all the 4 connectors.. nothing... then i tried pulling out one of the cards and just boot it up with on graphic card..nothing.....

oh i just looked it up mybad it was a dvi connector ..not a hdmi....but the big prob is that my monitor is like 6 years old so i will go take a nother look at it to see if it has any other options but i dont think it does

hdmi is digital only, vga is analog only
dvi is both

pc hdmi -> dvi adapter -> vga adapter -> monitor
will not work

pc dvi -> vga adapter -> monitor
will work

Just gonna post this because it sounds similar to what I had happen, did you install the motherboard standoff screws?

I suggest you check out the Newegg reviews on the motherboard. I had a crazy problem and it turns out to be a bad batch of motherboards.

If you can't turn off the power via button and you installed the cables correctly you're motherboard isn't responding.

Are you using the DVI port that says VGA beside it? I have a HD 6870 and it has two DVI ports but only one of them says VGA beside it. I'm assuming this means that this is the only port capable of putting out a VGA analog signal.

I googled a few pictures of the 6950 and it appears to be the bottom DVI port.

I would try booting with the monitor plugged into that port instead of just moving the plug around while the computer is on. It might not recognize the monitor if you move the plug while it is already on.

Try one card, and one stick of Ram at a time if you have more than one, There could be a chance that the PC isnt POSTing at all.
