I'm putting together my first 64 bit system. However, after putting all the components on the board, and turning on power, all I recieve is the fans turning on and the hard drive spinning. The cd rom and floppy do not appear to be recieving power. I do not get a bios screen, nor any beeps from the motherboard. Nor do I have any video. Here are the components of the system.
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700+*(2.2GHz) 939pin, OEM
Heatsink: Arctic Cooling Silencer 64 Ultra TCL
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 ST3250823AS 250GB Serial ATA 7200RPM Hard Drive w/8MB Buffer
CDrom: BenQ DW1655 - LightScribe DVD-RW DVD+RW DVD+R CD-RW Dual-Layer Optical Burner Drive (Black, OEM)
Video Card: P450-7846 :: XFX GeForce 7600 GS Extreme Edition / 256MB GDDR2 / PCI Express / SLI / Dual DVI / HDTV / Video Card
Memory: Corsair 1GB DDR PC3200
Any ideas/suggestions of what I could do or what would be causing this? I've only built a few systems in the past, and this is my first time with both 64-bit and an SATA hd.
I'm thinking it may either be the power supply (420) or the processor? Haven't had a chance yet to test the individual drives to see if they were causing a problem, but I did remove power to the hd and the cdrom drive one at a time with no change in results. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
