I just ordered new parts for a computer for me to assemble. im kinda a newbie so i dont know what is the problem. I put everything in the case and on the motherboard except the pci cards. when i boot nothing shows up on the moniter. only twice i got it to work but i had mixed up the ide cables so it didnt detect the hard drive so i had to turn in it off =(. no i have that corrected. i know its not a problem with the mobo because all the fans go on. its prolly not the processor or ram because the company (multiwave) tested the ram, mobo and cpu together. its not the graphics card because i have tried 2 different cards in it and its not the agp slot because the fan on one of the cards will turn on. its also not the moniter because i have tryed 2 different ones. its WILL turn on but i just get no video. help!

Try checking your video card, make sure its firmly seated, same with cpu and memory.
CPU fan MUST be connected to header #1 for some bioses to allow POST
if it aint broke, fix it until it is

You didnt mention what cpu you are using, recently I fried a T-bird 1GHz
on standard settings, within 20 minutes, maybe a fault with kt7a bios? I dunno.. waiting on reseller getting back to me, I still have the dead cpu :(
