I just finished a build (still a noob though )
here's the mobo:
old i know but this is a second pc that i plan on using just for streaming and maybe video chat
anyway i installed everything and turned it on.... and bingo it starts up and i see the first screen on oy lcd prompting me to hit F1 (it also said cmos battery dying or something to that extent)
so i enter F1 and being the noob i am i select standard settings and F10 (save and exit)
now here were the problem comes in....
the pc starts up but now i dont see the display, the lcd just say no signal
it worked the first time and now everytime i start it up it the monitor (lcd) doesnt pick up...
i changed the cmos battery,restarted no luck.... i also checked all the connection on the mobo and all seems good, the pc itself starts up and i can see the lights and fan working (hdd as well) but just not the display.
can you guys help ?
also and please dont nail me for this .... i think that one of the clips on the cpu heatsink might not be 100% clipped in the other three are though and yes i did use thermal paste... it does seem quite flat against the cpu though so maybe its not that...
ok flame away i learn best by trial and error so this wont be the first pc i broke hopefully its the last though
