First Built System wont start up??
I just finished building my first system and everything went good, the hardest part was putting the fan (heatsink I think is what its called) over the processor, really had to push that last tab to get it to pop in was worried the motherboard would break but finally popped in.
The original video card I ordered was the wrong type, my Motherboard would not take the AGP. I purchased a Diamond Stealth Radeon 9250 in PCI Version yesterday at Office Max so I could go ahead and build my system.
When I start the system up all the fans come on, the heat sink, the DVD RW and DVD rom both work but no picture on the monitor at all, the power led just blinks on and off. I had just moved it over from my other computer so I know it was working. I hope someone can help me.
A few things I thought of last night while I couldnt sleep thinking about this.
I did not have a keyboard hooked up, only an wireless mouse
The Video Card I installed was PCI, the mobo does accept PCI express but I couldnt find a video card in that version.
There is no power to the video card I even took it back out and looked it over to try and find a place to hook up the power suply, NONE.
I see there is a plug labeled PCI-E on my supply that is not hooked up to anything, can find no place to hook it.
Any Help would be very much appreciated.
