Default New PC Build Problems

Hi

I have just finished building this spec pc

Intel i7 930
Asus Rampage II Gene motherboard
Nvidia Geforce 9600 GSO
2 x 2gb Kingston DDR3 Ram
320 GB hard drive
550w PSU

I have just plugged the monitor into the graphics card and switched the pc on for the first time and the computer switches on and sounds like it is working but nothing is showing up on the screen

Can anyone please help me with this issue as i really want to use my new pc?

Thanks

Make sure you connect the monitor to the first monitor output and ensure that the graphics card is connected to the PSU, if necessary.

Let's start with some trouble shooting steps.

1. I remember the forum about your RAM, so I would take the RAM out and see if you're getting any POST errors (beeping). If you are that's good, the Mobo is working properly. See if it will boot without the RAM at least into the BIOS although I don't think it will.

2. See if the Video card is propely seated. Take it out and see if you get additional POST Errors. As there's no onboard video it's a little hard to trouble shoot the video card, try another video card that you know works.

Get back to us.

Every motherboard has an onboard speaker for POST errors. If you get one, it will beep.

It should be soldered on the board.

Unfortunately, the motherboard needs that speaker in order to communicate post errors. Have you tried the other trouble shooting steps? Making sure the card is seated, replacing the vid card? etc.

Yes have tried that. It sounds stupid but surely when your using a new GPU with a computer it needs to have the pc drivers updated? The only problem is this board doesnt have a built in GPU

Yea I saw that, there isn't a need to have drivers though when just booting up. The drivers are for the OS. Everything on the board should be plug and play. You may be able to go to a electronics store like radio shack and pick up another speaker. Don't use the thread in these forums about the beeping codes though as each manufacturer is different so the beeps will mean different things.

Ok thanks the other thing is, is that you know my previous thread about the RAm, it says that you need triple channel for an i7 930 and iv only got two sticks of ram in my computer. Is that why it is not working correctly?

If I'm not mistaken, the i7 will work with dual channel... I could be wrong though (I'm an AMD guy )

Edit: According to this site, the i7 does work with dual channel

Find that speaker or go get one. You have to be able to hear the Mobo communicate with you.

From here you have to get a mobo speaker if one is not soldered on to your motherboard, that's paramount. That's your next step.
