Default Re: New Motherboard help

First thing to cover is power connections, make sure you've got them all plugged in.
CPU 8-pin (or 4-pin), will go somewhere around the CPU.
Mobo 24-pin (or 20-pin), will go pretty much anywhere on the mobo.
If your graphics card needs power, make sure that's plugged in.

Next thing is to reseat the RAM - take it out and put it back in again.

Check connections on your monitor cable, it might just be loose. Also, if you have a video card as well as integrated, try it without the video card, as you may need to set it to use the video card - more on this if you end up needing to do this.

It's sometimes a good idea to have no hard drives/DVD drives/etc. plugged in to the motherboard, to simplify the problem.

Also, many cheap motherboards have no speaker, and thus no beeps, though that's pretty uncommon nowadays.
