First timer here building my first system. guess i should start with specs...
asus p5gc-mx 1333 mother board for intel 945gc chipset
intel core duo processor E2180 2 Ghz
seagate sata 300 500gb hd.
lg dvd writer
big damn antec 500w tower
Anyway, the motherboard powers up, fans works, hd spins, dvd lites come on, but no monitor... Everything was easy on the setup, with the exception that my power led is three prong and the f panel wants two, couldn't connect. hdd led does not fire up when powered up.
Went thru the asus troubleshooting guide, d/c everything, clear cmos, check that the processor and ram are properly seated. no monitor...
