I know some computers are anal about this.
But make sure in the bios screen you have the video set to PCI-E or whatever slot you have your GPU.

Some don't auto change. Also if nothing is showing. Try and take one ram stick out. might be that.

Most motherboards have two connectors for power; make sure they're both plugged in, if it's set up that way.

I connected my GPU with a 6pin and 8pin that go to my PSU into VGA1 and VGA2.. that should be okay right?

How do I change "bios screen" without seeing anything in the monitor?

Do you have the motherboard speaker attatched? Any beeps when it starts up?

A fairly common first-time mistake is to connect the motherboard power (big 24-pin connector) but forget the cpu power connector (4/8 pin connector). If you do that you'll get the fans when you turn it on but nothing else, no video, post beeps, drive activity, etc.



Motherboard speaker? I remember there was a wire called "HD Audio" and I connected it to the correct spot in the mobo.. is that what you're talking about? I know I connected the 8 pin CPU power connector to mobo. Also no beebs when the PC starts

Mine only has 1 CPU power connector and 1 24pin power connector....

Here's my mobo:

I don't know about labeling them "vga1 and 2" but that is correct.

Motherboard speaker should look something at least vaguely like this,
http://www.frys.com/product/6488702

Plugs in next to your front panel connectors (ie, the cables that carry the "power on" signal from your case to your motherboard).

At this point try stripping stuff down to the bare minimum a system needs to run and see if you can get it to post. Remove the video card, remove all but one memory stick leaving only the one closest to the cpu, see if it turns on or not.

Try another output like VGA or DVI.

Motherboards come with speakers? I thought they stopped doing this...

If your still getting nothing take out the GPU and hook your monitor to the motherboard then tell us if you get anything.

Give the full specs

Sometimes this can be due to the BIOS being too old
