Hey, I'm new to the forum here and I have read other people's post about no signals on their monitors however none of the solutions posted actually worked for me. I suppose there must be some explanation to why I'm receiving no signal on my monitor; my computer specs are:

Intel E2160 Socket 775 Pentium Dual Core 2x1.8Ghz 800FSB
Antec Sonata III Piano Quiet Mid Tower Case With 500W EarthWatts PSU
OCZ 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 CL 4-4-4-15 PLATINUM XTC
ABIT IB9 iP965 Socket 775 DDR2 PCI-E 7.1 channel audio ATX
Pioneer DVR-112DBK 18x DVD±RW Dual Layer Internal IDE
BFG 8800 GTS OC 320MB DDR3 DVI PCI-E Graphics Card
Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB SATA II 7200RPM 16MB Cache

Several people have suggested to make sure my BIOS is set to boot my PCI first rather than the integrated card. However considering I cannot access the BIOS since my monitor has no signal, I can't exactly check that =x . I believe that my BIOS could be set to the integrated card because since I have no integrated card, no putput would be displayed then =/ The rest of my computer works fine, I see all the lights, all the fans move etc but I just cannot seem to get the monitor working. I have checked that my montor does indeed work on my other computer. Anyone know any solutions for my problem?

Thanks in advanced.

try taking out the pci graphics card and using the onboard grapics cards and see if that works, if so it might be a problem with the grpahics card ie you might need to install the driver before you plug in the graphics card or you may neeed to fiddle a bios settings!

Hello Mikey,

I am in the same position here in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

In my case, the lights come on, fans spin up on everything but there is no post signal beep - are you getting any beep at all?

If it isn't beeping, it isn't posting and that is generally motherboard, cpu or psu related.

You can disconnect all drives and still get the post routines running.

If you are getting beeps, then your manual should give a legend explanation on what the beep sequence represents.

In my case I have had a faulty psu ruining a motherboard. I replaced the motherboard and it all powers up bur nowt else.

Currently I'm on the elimination trail of cpu, motherboard(even though it is new), RAM or PSU (again a new psu).

At these moments I feel like packing in the whole build game altogether and cop out and spend the shekels. Then I calm down and get on the trail again.

the only real way to solve the problem in your case rog is to swap out the components to another comp to check them and see if there working obviouly you cant do that with the motherboard or cpu but nearly all other components you can. Cos if it was a power supply problem it could have damaged one or more of the other components.
