Default Pop Quiz!!!

not really, but....
Okay, everything hooked up, turn on the computer, everything turns on, except that there is no post beeps, and no display.

List all possible reasons why this is happening.

Please dont suggest anything i should do, or ask whats wrong, i just want to know all possible reasons.

Thanks.

Assuming the system has a speaker on the motherboard and beeps when working properly, it could be pretty much anything from a short with the case, to every single hardware piece being bad.

You're sure the speaker is hooked up right? Connected to the correct pins and everything?
