Default New System troubles.

So i orderd my new system and i put it all together. This wasnt my first time i have done others.

All the fans light up, the harddrives spin and everything the motherboard lights turn on the gfx fan spins but when i turn the power on to get started doing what i got to do.

I GET NO VIDEO!!! everything is on working cd-rom and everything ram is fine no beeps on start-up...

Why am i not getting any video? is the processor bad??? im freaking lost.

Thanks in advanced.

What are your system specs? It could be a number of things... Cpu in wrong or damaged, graphics card not seated correctly.. etc.

Do you have a spare video card (AGP)?

You don't even know it was Newegg's fault, and they are very good with this kind of stuff. Maybe you should try another card like the guy before me said. And double check your work.

How much of the stuff you ordered was OEM?

Well i looked over the oem parts. seems like one of the seagates is burned out.. the circutery looks bad compared to the other 1.

I tried a PCI video card same thing.

I orderd a couple oem parts.

CD-RW / Seagate's / Floppy Drive / Processor.

I orderd the oem pro because i was ordering a different heat-sink and fan.


I hope newegg is willing to have a whole order returned because i worked hard for this 3,000 i spent and i think i got ****ed. I put together another system not as high end as this one but it was pretty high end. Had no problems

Im just about to breakdown because this is bullcrap. I checked my work 2 times..

I took my time building it , i spent 5 hours building it reading all the documentation, taking my time, being careful.

I think i was shipped a couple bad parts. I mean i didnt have a good transaction with newegg from the start.

Im having my guys @ my computer tech shop i work @ take a look at this, but i think there going to say the same thing i am, i think i was shipped bad parts and i really dont know which parts are bad and which are good.

Would newegg do a full order swap, because i dont trust this shipment @ all.

Guess will see what the guys say @ work cuz they do this stuff for a living longer then i have.

Oh and the monitor i purchased also and it works fine on my dad's computer its a LCD 17'' Nec, i doubt its the monitor.

Hey, don't blame them. You probably just put something in wrong or something. They can't help it that their customers mess up sometimes...I did. So do several others, so your not alone.

Recheck all your power cables to the Board, recheck your memory make sure there in the proper slots or just run 1 channel 1 drive and reset your video card .Unplug the CPU fan and plug it back in.
