    Hello, I am having a pretty frustrating issue with a new Gigabyte
    motherboard. I built an entire system on NewEgg, as specified below.
    For some reason, cannot figure out why absolutely NOTHING will display
    on the screen, despite fresh, brand new parts and OEM stuff. Pretty
    high quality parts, but, sucks when you can't take advantage of them
    due to no display!

    Just as a run down, we have attempted to flash the bios/CMOS reset, and
    are quite positive the display (monitors) are working we are trying to

    No beeps come from the system.

    Please, please help! Am anxious to use my new machine!

  2. Hi, are the fans spinning when switch the computer on. Not something silly
    like the computer power switch turned off, that has caught some people out.
    Is the 4 plug 12volt cpu power plugged in.

    (assuming your fans, DVD player, hard drive start up [spin] and the 4 pin 12v line is connected)

    I had this problem too. After reinstalling all the parts.
    Turn off the PSU.
    Remove the 20 or 24 pin power cables.
    Clear the CMOS. (Short jumpers that are on the same black thing as the battery for 1 minute.)
    Reconnect the motherboard power connection.
    Turn the power supply on and DON'T turn on the computer for 1 minute.

    Be very sure to be patient and wait the 1 minute for everything. I waited only 30 seconds or so when i did this the first time and it didn't work.

    I had to read this out of an ABIT motherboard manuel.

    [edit] If you did all of this and start getting a video beep error, your where I am at with this board :-/
