    I built the PC and have all the hardware installed. The disc that came with the mother board is in the reader drive. No signal is detected by the monitor. I am unsure if it has a BIOS.
    here is a link to my parts list


    i have reseated everything twice with no results.

    have u plugged in the TWO power plugs on the motherboard
    have u plugged the power for the video card
    have u checked the case to mobo power wire is in the right spot
    the video card u have requires a minimum of 500w power supply.......... u have purchased a corsair cx 500 which is not up to the job, while being a fine psu for onboard video........it is underpowered for your system

    the motherboard u chose is a tad low end see reviews here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

    Have you read the guide at the top of the hw forum for problem builds? If not, do so. If you follow ALL steps of the guide, you will find the cause of your problem.

    I agree the cx line from corsair is for a basic build ONLY. Even corsair says as such;
