I've recently purchased this mother board and a brand new video card. Problem is, even when connecting to the video card, nothing shows up on my screen. I'm almost sure it has something to do with me pulling out the Cmos pin on accident. Any suggestions?

1. you possibly have a malfunction inverter board which is internal to the PC. 2. this will require a qualified tech to dismantle the pc and replace the component board that connects to the video card that is integrated to the mother board. 2. if the video card is not working this will require a new mother board to be installed. 3. there is a cable also in some models that connect the video display to the mother board and this cable could have be dislodged and the results is no screen.
I understand your problem. As you have added a new video card and do not have video when you try to boot up, are your trying both the upper case connection to see if the video is still being outputed from the original VGA source?
I would suggest that you reboot and go to BIOS, to see if your on-board video is still enabled. I you can access your BIOS settings by pressing F2 or F6 upon bootup.
1. check your display settings for the best possible screen resolution for your laptop. 2. the new CPU that is installed is defaulted at 1080p resolution and is to strong for the video graphics card that is on the mother board which is possibly 1280X740 . Being a laptop and the video graphics is built into the mother board therefore possibly not compatible with the new processor. 3. Blue ray video is ultra high resolution such as 1920X1080 HDTV
swap monitors if monitor is same dell brand then its the monitor. otherwise you can buy a Video card PROVIDED that you can disable from setup the MOBO video card, and install drivers, also speaking of drivers try uninstalling the video and monitor drivers first !! the do mon swap, finally new vid card .
funky things can happen to drivers, esp improper shutting down windows like flip a power switch or not having a UPS and computer shuts down during a power outage or storm. seen this happen as well.
Hi check the cables from the case to the mother board. They should be marked and the book that came with the board will tell you where to connect them. The std markings are HDD [red led] PWR S [powerswitch] RSW [reset switch] PWR LED [case power light]
To test if there is no fault in the board or power pack. first visualy check the board to see if you have a red led light on when the power is turned on, if not the problem is in the power pack or the wall outlet.
second if the light is on, the bridge the pins marked pwr switch on the board with a screw driver and this should start the computer, if not you have a faulty board.
I assume you have tried with only one stick of ram individually at a time if you are using two to check it's not the ram as one faulty can cause the system to stop.
Also assuming you bought the ram from the same place and is compatible with the board.
Sometimes people also forget that the processor in some cases has to be powered by the 4 pin plug from the PSU and not just from the ZIF socket that older processors use to power up, so double check the manual.
The other main common cause of the this problem is when you are putting together all the hardware onto the board, if you don't protect it underneath it may have overflexed the board and shorted or damaged the circuitry or the bios chip.
That's not to say that the motherboard was'nt faulty in the first place.
