    So I just finished building up a new PC (4th one I've built and assembled) and I've run into a bit of a problem.

    Everything is wired up correct, turns on, no beeps etc. but for whatever reason I can't get anything to show up on the monitor. I tried hooking it up direct to the video card and the onboard video and neither appear to be sending anything to the monitor.

    I've checked and rechecked all the wiring as well as ensured both the video card and ram were seated properly. Everything inside looks good.

    I'm out of ideas at this point and open to any suggestions you guys have :x:

    have you tried onboard video with the discrete video card removed?


    could be bad mobo.

    You might have to disable the onboard video card.

    When I hook up direct to onboard video It still does not work.

    Do I need to remove the video card in order to use the onboard video?

    Thanks guys!

    Got it figured out nigs.

    Ram wasn't seated properly and I did in fact need to enable PCI-E in BIOS.

    I'm glad I didn't fuck anything up :o
