I got a new A7V-266 mobo for christmas. Weee! Everything is fine and dandy. I then put my new system together, using all the old parts from the other one and my new mobo, case and powersupply. Everything goes ok. I turn it on....and...and...nothing. The Powersupply boots up, the system fans turned on, the LEDS on the cdrom,harddrive, and mobo all turn on, and then off, and then on again (except the mobo LED). The Harddrive spins up. The monitor displays a "no input received" as if its not plugged in. So I double check the connections, remove the soundcard and modem, and then try again. Same thing. I then switch the IDE cables around, but it still happens. Thinking maybe the video card is to blame, I tak out the Geforce 2 AGP and put in the Voodoo 3 PCI. Saaame thing. The mobo doesnt emit a loud shriek telling me the ram is unseated or the processor isnt connected like the stooopid manual says. I'm completely lost!
