recently upgraded my system to a AMD 900 mhz processor and an A7V motherboard. Also added a new hard drive.When it goes to post i can see power to my two cd-roms and my floppy(remains lit) but no visual or auditory indication of my hard drive.Monitor displays that is receiving no signal.I have tried two different video cards.

Did you reset your jumpers or enter cmos to setup the new processor.

Do you have a cable reversed, floppy staying on usually indicates a cable on backwards.
Hard drive, did you enter setup and setup the drive to autodetect or manually detect it, whichever option you have. Will need to be fdisked and formated also using a bootdisk

If all else fails remove everything but processor, memory, floppy, hard drive, and vid card. Will it boot now.

Hi,

In reference to the display problem, I'd check to make certain that your memory is properly seated. You didn't mention any beep-codes, so I'll assume that you didn't get one (or you don't have your internal speaker hooked up).
As brianF said, check jumpers on the HD, and make sure it's set to master. When your video problem is fixed, check to see if the HD is being detected.
If you can't see any activity on the front panel of your computer, you might have the HDD LED incorrectly placed on the motherboard.

Good Luck :)

All the times I've run into this situation it's turned out to be the video card. If it's AGP then make sure it is seated properly. You might have to reseat it several times.
If it's PCI then try a different slot.
Could also be the video cable. If you can, try replacing the cable. If not, try a different monitor.
