Everything turn on. All fan, LED, and even got the sound of the CPU+motherboard doing their thing when boot up. Just nothing on monitor.

The only thing I am not sure is that, the GPU fan turn on (3850) but a 3870 fan wouldn't turn on. However, if I leave it on for awhile, the 3870 still can get hot, which means the power is fine... it is just not displaying anything.

I checked the beep device when I got home, and it should be placed right.

I guess it is a dead board? Are there any other possibility? I really want to avoid taking the whole thing apart and send it back =(

problem solved... there was a power wire not attached (detached?) at the CPU area =/ Feel stupid now.

Thanks for the help.
