Hello,

I am building my first PC this chrismas. Have encountered a few problems I was hoping to get help with.

Here's what I have:

Asrock z68 Extreme 4 MOBO
Seventeam 850w V-Force PSU
GeForce GTX 260
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB)
i5-2500k

I have hooked up everything as well as possible based on the instructions but here's the problem I am encountering:

My GFX Card won't power on, I see no display. even when I plug into the DVI slot on the actual Mobo instead of Card. I'm not sure if I missed a connection somewhere or am not giving it enough power. All my fans turn on, my HD turns on (at least I hear it), my processor fan turns on. But that's it.

I have included a picture to hopefully help illustrate my problem. Is this me missing something or a Mobo problem?

Thank you for your help! :hello:

Remove the GFX card then plug into the DVI slot on the motherboard see if that works.

Also check if you installed the memory to banks 1 and 2. Based from your picture you may have installed it in banks 1 and 3 or 2 and 4.

Shape,

Thank you for the quick response. The RAM is is banks 1 and 2, it may just look weird because of alternating colors. I removed the GFX card and connected to DVI slot on mobo, still no display at all.
