I just bought a new chip, MB, RAM, and video card. I've put it all together, but when I start it up my monitor gives me a "No Display" message.
Asus P5NSLI MB
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 chip
2 GB Corsair DDR2 RAM
PNY GeForce 8500GT VC
Antec 480wt PWR
When it boots, all of the fans and lights are running normally, and it sounds fine except every few seconds I hear what sounds like a soft high pitched reset, but nothing visibly occurs when that sound is made. I've checked the RAM connectons (making sure to keep them in the right channels), the chip and card connections (soundcard, wireless card), the HDD and CD connections and power, MB power, and the orientation of all the minor cabling (switch, lights, fans, USB), so I can't find what I'm doing wrong.
It appears like it ought to function properly, except that it's not feeding my monitor. Please help me out. Thanks.

Re: No Display on boot up
When a motherboard does not beep that isnt good news and its either the Motherboard or CPU.
Have you fot the FSB settings correct on the board?
Is your power Supply Good?
Does your graphics card need power and is it plugged in?
Unfortunately the only way to findout exactly is at fault is through a process of elimination.
Can you try a different power supply first?
Also try removing the CPU and re-seating it.
If not, then you need to try and get hold of another motherboard and see if everything works in that. If not then it could be the CPU.
Diagnosing CPU or MOTHERBOARD is always tricky without spares.

The monitor could be faulty, try connecting a different monitor to see if you get a Windows image. Next check the BIOS setting, if the video card is built-in on the motherboard, check the video settings. Next the on-board video may have a video RAM problem, re-seat the RAM modules, the video card used part of the RAM memory (ie. shared memory). Next if the video card is faulty, get or borrow a AGP video card and insert it into the AGP slot on the motherboard and connect your monitor to this video card then boot up the computer. Each of these steps should identify and fix your video problem. If you need further assistance, please leave me a comment together with any error messages.
That last RAM probably is good. Many motherboards have problems using many different memory. All of the memory you have should be at least identical to ensure that they work. When RAM run at different speed or require a little more voltage, they will not let your motherboard boot. You can try mixing up the order you put the RAM in. Try putting the last RAM in the first slot by itself, the motherboard should boot. Then try the rest.
Also, whenever you add or change hardwares, you should clear the CMOS/BIOS settings.
Dear User. to plug in the AGP card you dont need to check or see the CMOS. if u have pluged an AGP card and problem still persist then the problem is at *********** side or in RAM. just plug out RAM and other hardware except Processor and cables of switches. the switch on it and if it gives beep then your motherboard and processor is OK. there would be problem in your RAM so change RAM. and if it dont give the beep at startup then the problem is in your motherboard or power supply.
take it easy. any thing in its time.
first take out all you have entered in pc case.
second dissasemble any part and reassemble it again out of case sure. ( only cpu , ram and vga card). try it inoutside the case is booting your Mb with ram, cpu and vga that you have entered or not?
if yes put the Mb in his place but do not conect another peripherials (like hdd cd rom etc). prove again is Mb booting with ram , cpu and vga or not?
if yes connect another peripherials and continue with system operating installation.
if yor Mb isn't booting from begining then check whats wrong ram or vga or cpu?
(for this you need another component like it).
if it is booting outside and not booting inside case put a thin plastic film under MB in contact with case, because you have a shrt circuit elsethere and proceed after that with the rest.
check vga cable is it connected properly to the monitor
check motherboard light is it on that means getting elec supply
now take out the RAM chips and re seat them see if it helps
take out all of ur peripheral cards pci and see if it works in case of conflict sometimes display doesnt comes on
ur hard disk is making noise and the acctivity light is flashing that means it is loading OS normally that means RAM MB HARD DISK OS are ok and ur VGA card is having problem also try to connect other monitor if u have if u dont see any hard disk activity then RAM is the main cuprit try changign RAM chips
one more thing try VGA card ext one if u have embedded one
pls do the trouble shooting and always check ur system on every step in sequence it will help u in finding the problem
observe your keyboard numlock key,,, press it .. if numlock key is on and off your motheboard and ram is working.. check video card.. but if numlock key is not working.. check your memory ram.. and motherboard...
