My newly assembled computer will not boot.
The computer turns on and i can see all the fans spinning and hear the hard drive spinning but nothing is displayed on the monitor. Have tried removing ram dvd drive hard drive and battery on the mother board... I'm devastated any help would be appreciated.
Some specs would help...

EDIT: Is it this?

Hope this helpsSmile
Ok, first matter of affairs. Did you remember to plug in power connectors to your graphics card and is the graphics card fan spinning?

Did you remember to plug in the 8 pin power connector on your motherboard, right above the CPU?
I forgot to plug in the 8 pin power connector.... I plugged it in and it booted on the first try thanks for your help Andrew. Smile
From the FAQs:

Q: Do I have to plug in both the 4/8 pin AND the 24 pin?
A: Yes.


Anyways glad it's working now. Smile
haha amateur mistake. I was utterly confused first time putting a computer together and it didn't boot up...Turned out I forgot to plug the 4 pin into the motherboard also.
