Default Help! Built a Computer! Doesnt Startup!

I bought a new case and i have installed all of the parts. I made sure all of the connections were tight. The tower turns on and the LED's light up. But after i turn the monitor on nothing happens. All that is on the screen is COMPAQ. And it sits at this screen. I have tried waiting it out but nothing happens. I have the Harddrive disk but i cant get to the setup screen to format it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, R.J.

Try re-seating the ram. If you have two sticks in try one at a time.

Also just FYI this particular problem has been posted several time. There is a search function on the forums. If you try that you will probably find the answer has already been posted


Help us Help you:

1) <b>RTFM</b>
2) Search TF using <b>more than one</b> keyword or combination of words
3) Post specific details. We need your computer specs, your OS, and any details from the error messages you get.
