in my manual it says i should get beeps while it runs post. i heard no beeps and nothing appears on my monitor but no signal. also my keyboard does not work. im pretty sure everything is connected right except i have a 20+4 pin cable and when plugged in the 4 pin doesnt stay tight. also what are jumper settings? the manual says to check them if i dont hear beeps. i only have overvoltage and cmos jumpers and havent touched them. i also have extra cables from my case. already tried the one ram at a time thing. everything else in my system seems to work good (fans, leds, mobo lights)

i tested the sytem with no memory in and still didnt get any beeps, i dont know if its because theres simply no speaker for post or not though
 
jumpers are little electrical connectors that connect adjacent pins on the back of hard drives , cd/dvd drives and in the old days lots on motherboards . Sometimes still on motherboards .

For your computer to beep when it POSTS it will have to have a small speaker that is either in the case or came with the case plugged in to the correct pins on the mb . Usually right beside the ones where the power and rest buttons plug in . Check your motherboard manual to see where it plugs

There are two power cables to the mb . One is 20/24 pin and the 4 pin block clips on the 20 pin section . Make sure its clipped together properly b4 you insert it in the MB . There is also a 4 or 8 pin connector that is usually near the processor . That must be connected too .

Also, check the cmos jumper you talked about. Many times when building, it's a good idea to clear the cmos information. Basically it's just making sure everything in the bios is at stock settings.
 
What kind of psu do you have? The 4/8 pin cpu power should be snug, (this is in addition to the 20/4 pin main power). There is usually a clip on the connector to hold it down. You should also have a 6 pin power going to the video card. Push down on the video card to make sure it is seated all the way.
