New Dual Core Computer Troubles
I just built a new computer and I haven't yet been able to even get to the bios.
here are the specs:
-Foxconn NF4PIK8AA-8EKRS Socket 940 NVIDIA nForce Pro 2200 ATX AMD Motherboard
-AMD Dual-Core Opteron 270 Italy 1GHz FSB 2MB L2 Cache Socket 940
-2gigs Corsair XMS (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) ECC Registered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model TWINX1024RE-3200LLPT
-SAPPHIRE 100101SR-RD Radeon X850XT PE 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16
when i try to turn the computer on it appears as though it were running, but nothing appears on the screen. i have tried using different monitors, outputting to a tv, and i even swapped out video cards with my other one, and the x850 worked on the other computer, but the other video card did not work in my new one. i am worried that maybe the cpu is not compatible with the mobo although it says it is compatible with the opteron dual core series... any help would be greatly appreaciated. thanks!
