Just built a barebones setup using G'byte GA-71XE4 mobo, 1.3GHz AMD Duron, GForce2Ti graphics 10.2GB HDD, 128MB SDRAM. Mobo dipswitch set to 100MHz. My problem is I am not getting a signal to the monitor all fans are running and the HDD is doing its thing (no O/S yet) the reset and shutdown is working ok so I guess I've connected them right. I've tried a different PSU, Graphics card and monitor to no avail. Any help appreciated
how many beeps do you hear when you turn on the machine? If you turn on the machine with no graphics card then you should hear several beeps, if not, some other hardware is incompatible or faulty or configured wrong for you mobo.
If your motherboard does not beep with no graphics card plugged in then your system has a problem with either the processor or memory. I assume it doesnt have built in graphics on the motherboard as well as an agp slot?
