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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
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.
alternatively your system ram might be giving you grief, i had major BSOD issues with my computer and ram tested fine, upon switching sockets that the ram was in i found that it was actually good ram, bad ram socket.
There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor. That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good. The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort). 2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor. 3. You're video card is not functioning. Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A
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...
i feel this is not a big problem. if u hear a beep of ram on beap on boot then ram is ok just short it and check for displaay. check ur cpu socket it may be loose. if u don hear a beep on boot change the ram and ur problem will be solved
