First Boot No Display
I'm a newbie, hoping you guys can help me with few suggestions.
I'm building a new computer and now encounter few problems. Here's specs:
INTEL 975X (LGA 775)
E6600 CPU (2.4GHz)
WD 250G SATA 3.0
1GB Dual RAM (Kingston Value)
Radeon X1650 Pro 512MB
Zalman CPU Heat Sink
Thermaltake TR2 430W
At the first boot, there is no sign of keyboard and mouse having power. Chasis front and rear fans run fine. Graphic card fan also runs.
Mobo isn't recognizing IDE devices such as DVD burner. Basically, the reject is not responding (it does only if I unplug IDE cable).
Finally, monitor is blank. Checked and verified that cable is connected and card is in the slot properly.
I thought the problem was the RAM. Problems persist even switching to different RAM (using 667 and/or 800).
Dont know if this helps but both the VR and CPU lit up (red). Mobo also lit (green). My chasis come with a 4-pin Speaker connector. Is this unnecessary?
