New build, not screen. Help~


Oct 5, 2006
i just finished putting everything together today. but when i turn the power on, there's no screen in my monitor. everything is running properly(i think), case fans, cpu fan, and graphic card fand are all running, and no beep when i turn it on. do you guys think this is a ram issue with gigabyte mobo?

this is what i have:
Core 2 Duo E6400
GigaByte GA-965P-DS3
eVGA GeForce 7900 GTO
OCZ DDR2 Memory 2GB PC5400
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB

than you guys for your help~~

I would be highly suspect of the RAM or video card. Try running one chip at a time in all of the slots to see if you can get any signs of life. Also , try running no RAM to at least get a beep code that lets you know the board is working. It's possible you have some of the older OCZ ram that defaults at 2.2V and your BIOS is not supporting it by default but I was under the notion that OCZ had already taken care of this issue.

If you don't have access to any other RAM, take the box to a shop and have them test it with different RAM. If that fails, see if they have an old video card lying around they can test in it as well.
