Halp? No signal detected.

#1FLAWLESSCROWNSPosted 6/1/2012 9:19:01 AM
So I just got done putting together my first pc. My monitor, however, is saying that "no signal detected." I assume it's a graphics card issue but I don't really know. Everything else seems to be working fine.

Oh and the fans of the gfx card are working as well, I don't know if that's relevant.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks =D

It's the right board.

First question would be, how do you know the gfx card is working? EDIT: Nevermind, see you're saying the fans are working fine. :)

Second question would be, does the monitor have multiple inputs, and if so are you on the correct input?

Third question, does the motherboard have onboard video, and if so did you disable that in the BIOS.

I'm not sure if my motherboard has on board video. Here's my mobo.

I don't think it's an input issue. I really with it was.

Nope doesn't have onboard video.

Also, you don't think it's an input issue, or you know it's not an input issue. Just double checking that you're not assuming and you checked that out. :)

Are you hearing any BIOS beeps? If not, remove the RAM and turn the computer back on and it should beep at you about not having any RAM. If it doesn't then it really narrows the issue down.

Just removed the ram and heard no beeps.

So, motherboard issue?

Well, it can mean a few things really. You either don't have a speaker in your system or on your mobo to actually create the beeping noise. Looking at your motherboard listing, it does talk about a "Dr Debug LED". I gotta admit I'm not familiar with that at all, but it looks to be used the same way the motherboard will beep.

There may be a power issue. Double check that all of your PSU cables are firmly connected to the motherboard and properly connected too. (I've seen this a few times.

However, typically when I get something out of the box that's doing that, the motherboard has been the culprit. If there is anyway you can swap a motherboard out for testing that would certainly help greatly with the troubleshooting... but it's probably not too likely of a situation.

Yeah I don't have another motherboard on hand. I've checked and re-plugged all I can. There's a local pc repair shop I'll probably head to and see if they could help me out.

The motherboard seems operational, at least visually. The cpu fan works, power and reset switches light up, and the '55' number is displayed when on (don't know what that means lol).

Kinda frustrating, but it was fun learning about and building it. I'm not sure what else I can do at this point aside from rebuilding it step by step.

Thanks for the help man, I really appreciate it. Makes me less angry.

That's the Dr Debug LED I think. Which, if it is displaying a number is a very good thing! It's just doing the same thing as if the motherboard was beeping at you.

Try to put your RAM back in, power it back on. Is it giving out a different number? Or any number at all?

Both with and without RAM the motherboard displays 55.

It was odd though, upon powering back up the pc began to work then stopped for a moment. 2 seconds later it turned on regularly.
