what kind of monitor. most have self test. disconnect the monitor, turn it on and see if you get the self test. also, does it have a built in vid also? if it does connect to that see what happens. if u get vid then go into the bios and disable onboard. it should do it itself, but hey... you never know. also, if you disconnect EVERYTHING but the mem, proc and vid card (try with AND without HD) do you at LEAST get the bios info screen? also did you reseat the proc and the mem?
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
