Pc won't start up

  Pentium 4 Northwood 18:14 14 Apr 2005

A friend gave me an ATX case today, and is looked nicer than my own, i decided to swap everything into it. My motherboard is m-ATX though, so it was a bit of a struggle to get it in. Everything used to work fine before, but now the computer starts,(can hear HDD and processor fan) but nothing appears on the monitor, it just says no signal recieved. I have tried using both the onboard, and a seperate graphics card, and this hasn't solved it. What could the problem be

have you tried it on another monitor only an idea,also you should double check that you put everthing back as it was. also was there a power supply unit in the case are they diffrent

Double check all connections and make sure PCI cards and memory are properly seated. Is there any chance the heatsink on the processor could have been disturbed? Also check behind the motherboard and see if there are any loose screws which could short it to earth.

You could fit the one in your old case

A Rolls Royce is no good without a engine, put it back in the old case. at least the mini will get you there

As it's a P4 as the PSU got the P4 power plug the small four pin one? and is it plugged in

it didnt come with a power supply anyway, so it has the original one.

could you please list all the things i should check-i have tried 2 monitors and a tv etc, and all the wiring, 2 gfx cards etc.

(ps i'm not sure if the pc is booting at all now, the processor heat sink doesnt seem to get hot at all, and it always used to)
