Help with Custom Build

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I finished my aforementioned custom build computer, but I cannot get anything on my screen. At the moment, I am using a dvi port, converted to hdmi, and connected to my tv. When I start the computer up, it beeps once (which is supposed to mean everything is working ok) and then nothing else. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions I can get on this as its my first build, and I have know idea how to troubleshoot it.

Thank you for any tips!!!

that board doesnt seem to have any onboard ports =/
you would typicaly see eigther a vga or dvi port, rarely but sometimes both, coming straight from the mobo's i/o.

The only thing i could suggest is try it with a real monitor first to see if it has some problem with your tv, once you know if it is outputting video or not, then you can narrow down the problem to either
a) the connnection bettween your tv and your computer

or

b) a video output problem with your computer directly






other things worth checking:

did you make sure that the 6/8 pin cables needed to power your video card are installed?

is the 4 pin cpu/mobo connection installed?



wish i had more to help with

So you're going through HDMI using a DVI/HDMI adapter? And there is no on board VGA integrated controller - have you gone into the bios, and made sure your setting was changed to PCI-E? It's suppose to change it on its own, but here is how to do it, and I am assuming you have the same bios as me.


1.Turn on your computer, and start tapping the "DEL" key until you get into the bios.

2. At the top right click " Exit/advanced mode"

3. Click "advanced" tap, and then click on " System agent configuration"

4. Then you will notice it says " Initiate graphic adapter " and if it didn't auto change it will say " PEG/PCI". Click on that and change it too PCI/PEG.

5. At the top right click "Exit" and " save & restart"

Now this is if you can get into the bios screen, and make sure your TV is on the right HDMI input. Cause even without drivers on the GPU you should still be able to see something on the TV screen.
