first build HELP!

Ok, I finally decided to build a computer, should be easy right? I ordered a motherboard (crap one but it should work) an amd, DDR ram and a power supply.


Ok, so before I do anything I plug the power supply to the mother board, put it ontop of the static resistant packing and attach the mother board to it. I then set the power pins, and it comes on.....only to turn itself off..........


I do not get a post test beep. I have checked the power supply by hooking it to my old computer, it works. Ram works.

SO it has to be the motherboard or processor. Recently I was thinking that it may not have been instaled with a graphics chip of any kind, would this cause it to not even go to post? Would it cause it to turn off? If so then great, I know the problem, if not what could it be?


This is my motherboard: Mercury KVT600x
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...2&Sku=K13-2800

yes, tigerdirect sucks, but I live in Miami...the store is here, and best buy doesnt sell motherboards...


Thanks for your time, please help.

It needs a graphics card to boot, yes.

kk, thank you. Tiger Direct has been known to short hand people stuff. My bestest friend Aysha worked there for a few months and quit cause of the crap they pulled. I only buy there cause cheap and a couple miles from my house.


Graphics card it is! TO BEST BUY!

I'm kind of wondering how you were planning on using your computer without being able to display anything on a monitor, just testing it out in advance? The specs on that motherboard don't look that bad to me, what am I missing besides that it doesn't come with anything but built-in sound?

wow, didnt execpt my post....


i only glanced at the specs of the motherboard, all the motherboards i've had, were equiped with at least a shoddy graphics chip on the mainboard.

pointless talk anyway, the motherboard came defective, peice of ----, why you dont buy tiger direct...
