need help, new system - no display! :(

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My mate bought a new PC parts yesterday, they are:

 

Motherboard Asus P7P55 LX

CPU Intel i5 650 @3.2GHz

Memory 4G Kit DDR3 1333 G.Skill-Ripjaws

Graphics Gigabyte ATI Radeon 1GB 5770

HDD WD SATA 1TB

DVD R/W SATA Sony

PSU CoolerMaster Silent Pro M600

Casing CoolerMaster CM Storm Scout

 

after finished assembling, he hooked it up to the monitor, dell 22".

the PC's booting, but the monitor was only showing "power saving mode".

 

He had tested other dvi cable, switched ram position, and used his brother's GeForce 9500, but none of these works.

 

The monitor is fine, he's using PS3 with it.

 

Any idea how to fix this? :(

 

(pardon my grammar and terrible english)

 

Cheers.

make sure that the GPU is plugged into the PSU? that would be important. 5770's have a port right on the back for the power input so give that a check.

Since the original BIOS for that mainboard doesn't support the CPU, it's possible it needs a later revision.

 

Remove both GPU and RAM completely and then try and power on. If you don't get "where's my RAM and GPU?" beeps then it's likely your mainboard can't recognise your CPU.

Okay, looks like the RAM is fine given that the mobo is screaming for it. Tried another video card?

Hi Sora,

Tried different VGA, didn't work either.

 

We're guessing it's BIOS, as tantryl mentioned. Apparently it's very common...

He'll bring his PC to MSY in the weekend.

Got the VGA card in the top slot (closest to CPU) not the bottom one? Bottom slot is generally for the second card of an SLI or Crossfire setup.
