just bought a new mo/bo and cpu today, threw it all in and now it has some real issues.
When I press the power button, the case LED's and lights come on for about 5 seconds and I hear my video card's fan going, then it all goes dead. I press again and it all comes back to life, but no sign of activity for my drives or for the cpu fan. I press a third time and the cpu fan tries spinning for about 60 seconds, but still no signal going to the monitor. I can't even tell if it's POSTing.
The videocard used to work fine on the old motherboard. In thinking it may have been too much for my 500W PSU, I tried disconnecting all unnecessary drives etc. No change.
I tried an old video card, but it does exactly the same thing.
The new gear I bought today was:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 w/ G0 Stepping
Gigabit GA-P35C-DS3R motherboard.
the video card is an MSI Geforce 8600 GTS.
anybody got any ideas as to what I should try to get this lot working for me?
