Hello,

I'm installing a new motherboard for this computer i'm putting together. Everything is assembled right except when I turn the computer on the monitor doesn't come on. It acts as if the monitor isn't sycned with the computer. The video card and monitor works fine because I tried it on another computer. So I'm stumped ! Is there anyone outhere who might know how to fix it ?

Thanks ....

Anthony

I don't think it's hybernating because I can hook that same monitor up to another computer, and it will work fine. Is there anything on the motherboard that I need to check on.

Try the card and monitor on a diffrent system

or a diffrent card in the same system

is there an OS onboard?? Win 9X XP

Check the power settings in the bios...

The monitor and video card both work on another system. and how do I know what settings to check on the bios, if I can't see anything on the monitor.

you got me on the BIos....

So if the card and Monitor work in a diffrent system...the next thing would be to try diffrent card and monitor is the disfunctional system...you should get the same problem....in which case sounding like the M/Board...send it BACKX(

Is it PCI or ACP...if PCI... can you move to a diffrent PCI slot.....

Do you get any beeps and are the fans spinning up?

Is the CPU fan plugged into the right header?

Oh! did you remove an old motherboard and then just stick this one in there?

One of the old standoffs could be grounding the motherboard to the back panel.

Try this!

Disconnect everything off of the motherboard except the CPU, Heatsink and Fan.

Take the motherboard out of the case and lay it on a phone book or something non conductive.

Hook up the following items only.

Hook up the wire that comes from the power button on the front of the case to the correct header, See manual.

Hook up the the power supply to the motherboard.

Insert one stick of ram.

Insert the video card all the way.

Hook up the monitor.

Hook up power to computer.

Turn on the monitor.

Turn on computer.

You should have video on the monitor.

This sounds like a lot of work but it narrows down the devices to a few.

Try this and post back with the results, Relax and take your time...
:D

I shall go ahead and do my usual rant.

This is the EXACT thing that happened with us. Just double check everything. Maybe its the hard drives (cable select is satan), might just be a power connector you didnt put in, maybe the card is fried.

I agree. I would check all the connections and try a different monitor and card, at seperate times in the new system. Also, are all your jumper settings right?

Good luck,
