    Alright you guys...this situation has really confused me quite a bit. I started off buying a DemonX case for my eMachines computer. I put everything in the new case and turned it on. I saw the lights and my fans going and it looked like the computer was running fine. However, I looked over at my monitor and it was showing a black screen. I pulled out the monitor cable from my cpu and i got the "Check connection" message. This means that it was registering that it was connected yet it wasnt really turning on all the way. Now, i got frustrated and put everything back in the old case and got it running perfectly with the monitor. whats the deal???

    Here are the specs of my computer:
    AMD 3200+
    450W PSU
    160GB HD
    Soundblaster Audigy 2
    Nvidia Ge-force 4 Intergrated

    Try hooking up the motherboard with attached CPU/heat sink/ fan and RAM to the new case with the power supply and wire from the case front power switch. However keep the motherboard out of the case on a non conductive surface. You can always trying resetting CMOS with the jumper on the MB.

    Do you mean putting everything in the new case but have all the cords attached to the MoBo and the MoBo on my desk or something?

    The motherboard should not be in the case. On the motherboard you should just have your RAM, CPU/heatsink and fan. Connect the power supply and the case power switch to the mother board. And of course your monitor cable. Don't worry about hard drives, CDRom drives etc. You're just trying to get something up on the monitor and by doing it this way it eliminates the motherboard shorting on the case as the problem.
