No Beep, No Boot, No Video
I just got a new custom-fit computer whose parts I purchased off of Newegg. I was extremely impressed by the specs of it, as well as the fair price.
I got to work setting it up last evening, and I set everything up and turned the machine on for the first time. Great! I thought, it works. But I soon realized that something was amiss. The computer didn't make a beep like I'm used to (it didn't make any sound whatsoever, actually...like a long beep or anything like that). The monitor kept saying "no signal" then going to sleep.
So I read up on a forum board that maybe there was a short between the motherboard and the case. I took the motherboard out of the case, hooked up the power, RAM, drives, video, and started it up again by shorting out the jumper pins. Again, nothing. Same thing, the CPU fan started going normally, but there wasn't any sound (no beeps), and the monitor acted as if nothing had happened at all.
I am quite confident that I hooked up everything correctly, but if you feel that I might be in err, I'd be willing to try what y'all have in mind for going about fixing it. Here are the components that I have:
