New Computer - No Video Output

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,
This kind of has a long story.

My friend had a computer that he had that worked fine. He bought a new case and switched the components over and thats when the hell started.

Once he put his old motherboard and everything into the new case (Coolermaster Haf 922) the system would not post or output any video signal. So I took the computer home, tried a different monitor,different PSU, reseated the CPU, put new thermal paste on the CPU, took the CPU out of the case, tried with and with out all or any components even the ram and still the same problem.

Now, he purchased a new motherboard, CPU and RAM (I5 760, G.Skill Ripjaws and an ASUS p7H55-M) I installed this into the coolermaster case, all drives and everything to come to the exact same problem as before, even with new CPU, motherboard and ram. I took the new computer home and again tried another PSU, monitor, everything that I know that works and still no video output. All the drives are spinning, lighting up etc. I have used 2 different 300W PSUs with no success. Could there just not be enough wattage even for the basic components? or are the parts just dead?

I tried to add as much detail as possible, sorry for long post.
Thanks for your time.

I find it funny that nobody even bothered to post help. Probably because of all this Sandy Bridge craze. But what you want to do first is test each part individually. That would rule out which parts do work and do not work. Test the parts on a known good working system. The process of elimination will help you figure out what works and what doesn't. It could be quite possible that the components became damage through ESD (electrical static discharge) while handling them by hand so it is advisable that you discharge any static in your body first by touching any large metal surface such as the metal legs of a chair or a table.

But a 300W PSU is kind of low for a computer setup. Most use between 550W-750W PSU's depending on setup. A quality PSU is always a must with computer parts otherwise components can possibly be taken out by a bad or cheap power supply. Try your Corsair 750W and see if it boots up. Test the Ram in your system see if your system boots. It's the only way you'll find out.

Yea I used to run a Core 2 Duo and a 8800GT and all that with a 300W and it managed. As long as the system starts, he doesnt need a card atm he will probly just go with onboard til he gets some money.

But yea I managed to take apart my system to test the parts, the CPU, RAM work fine. But when i put his mobo into my case with his CPU and ram with my 750W PSU, same problem. I think iv narrowed it to the motherboard but ill have to see. I got another board that he had here that Im going to try. Thanks for the help sir
