hi all!

I bought a new computer with the specs below and I'm having a problem getting a video signal to my monitor. When I push the start button everything seems to work just fine but my monitor stays in standby mode. I have tried to use only one memory stick with no success and I have tried to use the video card on both pci-e slots.pc-speaker doesn't give any error beeps.I also tried to use another monitor with a different cable. Any help would be much appriciated.

my specs:
asus a8n-sli deluxe
athlon 64 +3500
2x512mb 400mhz ddr system memory
200gb seagate 7200.7 rpm
gecube x800xt
nec dvd burner
antec sonata piano 380w

Did you buy it pre-built or build it yourself?

I already switched the ezplug card system to one video card becouse it was in dual video card mode and 380W should be enough to run those specs.

Do you have your ram in the correct slot? Check your manual for info-I think (if I remember correctly) a single Dimm must be in slot B1 or the system will not start.

Same here, no video, no matter what I tried. I spent several days at it. Removing devices, resetting the bios, I tried both of my XFX 6800GT PCI Express and no good. Tried 1 at a time in primary pci express slot. No video at any time. I called asus and found out that a small handful of these motherboards have either completely dead (in my case) or partially flaky Nforce 4 chipsets. That's all. It's not bios related, it's not power supply related. (well at least not in most cases) If your having problems with this and can't figure this out call asus and ask about this.

My setup
Athlon 64 3200+ winchester
1GB PC 4000
2x xfx 6800GT PCI Express
A8n sli deluxe
x connect 500 watt 36A on +12v rail
audigy 2 zs plat
