Hello,
Just bought all new components,
LG GH22NP20 22x DVD±RW
Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 RAM
Arctic Power 500W PSU
Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 770 Socket AM2+ 7.1 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
AMD Athlon X2 7850 2.8GHz Black Edition Socket AM2+
GeoForce 8400GS 512MB DDR2 PCI-E

put all together and all fans power up, including the graphics card's one and also all lights come on however no image comes up on the screen
I have tested the graphics card and memory card and they both work, the motherboard has been sent back to ebuyer once and they deemed it faulty and sent me a new one however after this happening twice I am doubtful for the motherboard to be faulty twice.
HELP NEEDED

cheers.

that woul indicate that your cpu is not set up right. or plugged in properly. i would look in that area.

Sorry, this is my first build so i lack some knowledge, i have put the cpu in and secured it down then placed the heatsink on and plugged in the cpu fan to the motherboard, what could i have done wrong?

using your motherboard manual you need to check what settings to set on the motherboard for the cpu that you have fitted.

ok, looking at another thread on another forum,

'This is a dumb question - don't be upset - just double-checking the obvious - but, did you remember to plug in the extra GPU connector from the psu?'
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Looking at the manual, I see that there are two power leads that need to be connected.
1 is the nnormal one and the other is an 8 pin plug. this supplys power to the cpu.

check to see all connectors are connected as should be.

let me know if that has made a difference.

I just checked the manual and i followed the instructions fine checking both the CPU manual and the motherboard one, i guess it might be a faulty CPU?

or another dud board ...:-(

any way keep us posted on the outcome.

you could always strip it down and build it outside the case. to see if anything is shorting with the case. sometimes happens.

just put mobo, cpu, one stick of ram (closest to cpu) and graphics card together. try that.
