Ok trying this again
I know this is like beating a dead horse, but I'm at my wits end. I am building a computer for a friend. I've put everything together exactly the way it should(to my knowledge) and cannot get a signal to the monitor. At first i thought it was the MB so i sent it back to newegg and got a replacement, after replacing the MB, i still couldnt get a signal. The MB i bought came as a MB vid card combo. Then I come up with the idea that the CPU is bad, so I go to Fry's and buy a MB/CPU combo. I get everything set up and I'm getting almost the same thing. The first time I got a floating box on the monitor that had something to do with the monitor set-up, like what happens when there isnt anything hooked up to it. This time I'm getting just a black screen. Here is my setup:
ECS 945GZT-M motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 LGA775 2.20 GHz, 2MB L2 cache 800 MHz FSB
Corsair HX520w Power Supply
eGeForce 7200 GS vid card
LG dvd burner
PNY DDR2 PC2-5300
Seagate Barracuda 250GB 7200RPM SATA 3.0 Gb/s
I posted this on pcnerd website and they havent been able to help. One of the guys on the other website said the CPU and MB may not be compatible...
Oh! A phoneg is ringin....
