Default No video and keyboard dosent respond when booting

i rebuilt a comp with a diff mobo and same processor and i think it has the same ram, same hdd, different cdrom. and i put it togeather and when i turn it on there is no video and the hdd light is solid for like 30 secs or so and then it turns off. i have a keyboard in but the numlock, caps lock and scroll lock dont respond. im pretty sure that the monitor works and it has onboard video and i had my own card in ther and tried plugging the monitor into both. I dont know hwat to do. I dont know if ther are any beeps cuz i dont have a system speaker. I tried taking the battery out and starting the comp w/o the cpu and then putting it in again. still same problem. i auctually have a system speaker but dont know how to put it in cuz it just has a + and - and the mobo has like 4 pins for the speaker

It only uses the outer 2 pins. Don't think it matters which is which.

either I've never pluged them in wrong or it doesn't matter. Your motherboard manual probably gives you a pin out, unless you bought your motherboard from k-mart.
