    I recently changed my computer case and after some struggles successfully moved all the hardware from my old case to the new one. It's a P4-1.7, DVD, CD, Nvidia GeForce FX 5600, Sound Blaster Audigy 2. The thing is, when I power the computer up I get no picture on my screen, so I'm wondering if it just has to do with the screen or the computer is just powering up and not actually turning on. Could someone please help me, I think it might have to do with how I connected the wiring to do with the hard drive, CD, and DVD.

    Disconnect everything except the processor, video card, memory, and floppy. Try and boot it and see if it posts with video. If it does just start adding one device at a time back

    The motherboard could also be shorting on the case - pull it out of the case and try it with only the CPU, Video, 1 stick of RAM and powersupply. Don't connect any other PCI cards or any drives.

    Could you clarify this statement? And what is the power rating of the new PSU is it P4 compatible?
