Hi everyone, this is my first thread. Hopefully someone can help me.
I bought a new motherboard, plugged everything in and I have nothing. It powers up, but I don't get a signal to the monitor.
I brought my video card and processor to work to test them here, the video card works no problem. The IT guy here said that if the processor was bad the system wouldn't even power on so the CPU must be ok.
His conclusion was that it has to be the memory. I used the memory from my old machine, which is PC3200, but the new motherboard says it's only compatible with NON-ECC / NON-BUFFERED PC3200. I have no idea if the current ram is compatible.
Would this be the source of the problem possibly? I bought a new ram module today, but haven't been home to test it out yet.
Should I look anywhere else for why I can't get a video signal.
MOTHERBOARD - SY-P4VTE (Prescott-Ready)
VIDEO CARD - RAEDON 9700 128MB
