Hello, i've just recently started building a computer, i've got all the pieces and once built I start up, all fans start, the processor get hotter(used temperature monitor to make sure certain areas were getting power.) everything seems to be getting power so the supply is fine. So what happens is nothing displays on the monitor, when I unplug it, it recongizes it's unplugged but when hooked up the monitor the monitor's power button blinks on and off.
I've tested the monitor on a laptop and another computer so it's fine. I've tried testing without memory, video card, etc, leaving only the processor, mobo and fans. (I also get no post beeps period, from what I believe though the model mobo I have, has a defect that has no post beeps.) Still nothing. Everyone had originally suggested the video card but I've since then recieved a new one and tried with and without. I've come to the conclusion it is the motherboard's bios acting up. But I want to make sure there isn't a compatability problem i've over looked or something, any and all help is appreciated. So anyhow here is my setup. Thanks for all help guys and gals.
