    All righty then. First time on Tech Support Guy, continuing my thread on PCWorld. In the past few days, I've received and built my new rig for mid-range gaming. However, I've been getting two particular errors: the inability to receive visuals, and the lack of any beeping whatsoever. I've tried resetting my CMOS, and switched out everything from my new card to my RAM. I've whittled it down to either my Motherboard, my CPU, or my inability to connect everything properly. I've rebuilt, tested only the essentials, and gone through every manual at least sixteen times. Here are my new specs:

    Graphics: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5670 512mb (PCIe 2.0 x16)
    Motherboard: MSI 870-G45, AM3 Compatible, DDR3 Support, ATX build
    CPU: AMD Phenom II Dual Core processor (AM3 Socket)
    CPU Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, AM3 Compatible
    HDD: 3.5" Samsung 7200 RPM Bare Drive
    RAM: 1 stick of Corsair 'Gaming' 2GB DDR3 1333
    Power Supply: (Recycled) 450 Watt, recycled from my old build so unsure of specific specs

    I'm just wondering if there's anything I can try before I have to leave them somewhere for testing. I welcome any suggestions. Thank you for your time.

    Hmm. It could be a power problem. If the power supply doesn't have enough watts or not enough amps on the 12v rail for the graphic card.
    Does anything comes up when you turn the computer on or does it stay blank?

    Sorry about the delayed response. As for my Power Supply, I've ran an older 600W with it as well, which also produced no results. As for booting, everything starts normally, all the case fans start and, with that, all the LED's attached to the case all turn on, but there's no video output whatsoever.

    Ok. Are you able to access the bios?
    Also since you're using a graphic card, use the video plug from the card. If this doesn't work then try using the motherboard's video output. If this works then that means you have to disable the video card on the motherboard and enable the video card from the pci-e slot using the bios.
