Most likely problem is a video type mismatch. Your description makes it sound as though you understand the case build process well enough.
The motherboard you purchased has a DVI-D output. It requires a special cable. There is no adapter that will convert DVI-D to any DVI analog signal. There are some shady manufacturers that sell them (they look good but don't work), but unless you buy a cable that has a digital-to-analog converter inline, you will need a monitor with a DVI-D connection in order to see any video.
Replace the graphics card and test again or if you are using the built in graphics chip, try connecting to a seperate card. Check the cable to the monitor and also try a different monitor.
If that fails, the issue is likely to be with the motherboard and its components. Possible causes to be investigated are: Power supply PSU not working CPU not working (see if the heatsink is getting warm) Motherboard damaged ( only certain way to test is to replace the cpu with aknown good one, if the system fails to boot, the motherboard is damaged) Try swapping the RAM modules, sometimes they fail halting the system
If you are having trouble booting the system and getting a screen
try the following multi-step procedure. Power off your system first
before completing any of the following tips.
1) Check CMOS clear jumper JP1 (JBAT1 on some systems). Set for CLEAR for 5 seconds, then move back.
2) Check CPU host clock jumpers (if any) are properly set. Note: does not control memory bus.
3) Check your power supply. Should be 110/115v for North America.
4) Unplug all data cables for IDE and FDD from the motherboard.
5) Unplug all power supply cables attaching to your IDE and FDD drives.
6) Remove all cards and devices EXCEPT for video, RAM, CPU, CPU heatsink/FAN.
7) Move memory into a different bank, if available.
8)Unplug the CPU and reattach.
9) Ensure your CPU heatsink/FAN is attached properly to the CPU.
10) If you use a variable RPM fan ensure its set for full speed.
12) If 1-11 do not help power off and test the motherboard outside
the computer case to eliminate a case/motherboard power short.
13) Retest. If the board now works check for case problems. If the system still is not working continue…
14) You may have a possible hardware problem. Any device in the system
may be a possible culprit. Use process of elimination to determine the
cause. Swap out as many components as possible starting with RAM, CPU,
POWER SUPPLY, VIDEO CARD (if present) and/or MOTHERBOARD.
Hi sebaswis, am I correct that this Gigabyte GA-7VRX is a replacement MB? (I read your other posted questions). http://www.fixya.com/support/t1399506-computer_boot_when_power You mentioned you put your old system back together & it worked fine. If mother board is shorted to the system case you will see the CPU fan spin for a second. Most motherboards use a green led which represents there is stand-by power running to the board.(This is normal). I am unsure why your led is orange. (Its not mentioned in your manual & manual does not show the led?s location). Was the other GA-7VRX MB led always orange or was it also green? Suggest you disassemble the heat-sink from the CPU. You mentioned you installed a new XP 2500+ CPU. If a pin on the CPU was bent during installation of CPU into the socket or if no thermal grease was applied or too little to the top of CPU, either would give you: CPU fan spins for a second & nothing else seems to run. Look over the link provided below. It is a guide to how to install a motherboard. (You may not need this but Its worth going over all the steps). http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/145 As far as the power supply. If the MB's are the same (GA-7VRX) & the old system ran with 220W, the newer one should also function. Clarify these questions for me sebaswis. Mike
You have voice message telling you CPU test failed , but does it BEEP at all ? if you have a Beep code then replace the CPU fan ( when CPU gets too hot it will either shut down or the PC will not boot up at all )
This Is A Processor error Message, CPU ( Central-Processing-Unit ) INT ( Intermittent Fault ) wrong Type Installed. ( Faulty Processor ) Disconnected Fan-Wire To Motherboard ?
Or if It,s INIT Then It Fails To Initialise The CPU.
Is The Board Auto-detect Settings ? Or Jumpered ?

The CPU failure was possibly due to a Power Spike, if that was the case then the Memory or Motherboard may also be damaged, it may be best to test the CPUs and the memory on a known working system, to see what is working & what is not
