I have just spent the last few hours putting my new PC together...but it won't boot.
Everything seems to be in the right place....the fans turn and i can hear the hdd boot too...i don't get any series of beeps which i would expect if i had done something wrong...the monitor just doesn't switch on.
i have swapped monitors to see if it works...neither monitors switch on..
i have unplugged everything except for mobo and gfx card but still nothing.
Am i missing somthing? Its a PCI-express gfx card which i have never fit before but accordeing to the manual...all it needs is one lead into it from the power supply.
With the computer switched off, clear the CMOS by means of link. Alternatively you can remove battery and leave it out for ten minutes.
When battery is replaced, enter BIOS and make sure settings are correct for CPU. If you don't enter it correctly, computer will refuse to start completely. That means no post checks, No beeps, and no BIOS
amips and pj123 were right....the problem related to the RAM. But it were the sockets that didn't work properly...i moved one of the sticks to the other sockets and it booted. Is it a fault with the motherboard that the first socket A1 and A2 aren't working or do i have to fill the B sockets up first.
Its working now...but should i return it to 'overclockers' as faulty?
