Finished re-building my new pc about 2 weeks ago. New case, mobo, PSU, hdd, and RAM.

MSI P7N Diamond 4GB RAM evga 8800 gts 700 kingwin psu intel e6600

Been working up until 30 minutes ago. I had it on yesterday, and turned it off around 10:30 after playing some arma 2, got home today and there is no signal.

So what I've done so far...

-re-seat video card, and also try using a friend's 9800gtx. -changed DVI cable -tested monitor with PS3...it works -unplugged everything but the essentials -took out CMOS battery -used a different pci slot

Yet to no avail it still won't show signal. Oh and about beeps, I don't hear any, then again I don't think I ever plugged the speaker in because I never had beeps when it was working. So, I'm assuming it's the new motherboard (which is why i upgraded my pc...my other mobo died. LUCKY ME).

Anything else I could possibly test before concluding it's the mobo?

Connect a case speaker into the pins for it on the motherboard and see if it's beeping an error code at you. It's what they're for.

I had the exact same problem recently. Turns out a RAM module wasn't seated properly. Try reseat them, then do a CMOS reset.

I gotta find the cable, but once I do, I'll come back with the results.

Did that already, well I took 3 of the 4 out. I never reseated the first one. I'll do that in a little bit.

Sucks, for now I'm stuck on this little dinky lap top that can't process more than two damn firefox windows.

Do you have any coded lights on the board, or an expanded port slot?

Some boards come with a set of four lights, that alternate red and green, for errors.
