No Signal on new setup

  sil_ver 13:42 27 Oct 2003

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

As far as I am aware this BIOS supports up to 1.4GHz. CMOS has been reset, I even checked the battery which is showing 3v.
No, I don't have a pci graphics.

Can I assume that if the HDD is being read, which appears to be the case judging by the activity, then the CPU is OK?. I've also changed the SDRAM.

Not getting any beeps with or without either graphics, mouse or keyboard plugged in.

All connections made. That's how I'm switching on and off.

check the simple things first like have you bent a pin on the monitor cable or graphics card etc. also remove all cards and drives except Graphics and floppy' and see if it will boot to bios

My guess is ether CPU or motherboard, odds on CPU

First off yes the cable is attached to the monitor(s). It's a new CPU but I guess it could be faulty also could be the mobo. To recap I have changed the following. Monitor, video card (nvidia and ati) sdram has been changed. Even if the BIOS needed updating I would have thought I'd have got some response. I dont expect it to bootup as there is no O/S but would have thought I would get into BIOS unless either the mobo or cpu is duff.
