finished putting together my rig..
750i FTW
Q6700
HX620W
Gtx 260 core 216

i tried with a diferent video card that i know for sure works 100% but still no video.
i get POST beeps, and if i hit 'delete' i can hear the NB getting louder as if entering bios.
still no video tho.
do i have a busted PCI-E port?

1. Is your DVI or VGA plugged into the correct display port?
2. You can try clearing the CMOS and see if that might work

If that doesn't work than its likely you have a bad card or as you said a PCIE slot.

Question, on the physical monitor hooked up to this said video card.
What is the Power light doing? Solid Green? Flashing Green? Orange?

Thanks,

Yeah, Zero Signal from the VC with Orange.

Now I'm not 100% but I do recall hearing you can stick a 16x card into a 1x PCI-E slot to test if its the slot or not thats giving you the issue.
Someone correct me if I'm Wrong, but I would give that a whirl and see what happens.

so it's not my cpu?
i tried a different gpu and it didn't work either.
if i press F1 the 7F error code will go into FF which is normal procedure.
i get one long beep followed by two short beeps

ill stick the gtx 260 into my old rig to see if that works.

The beep codes I am not familar with , and I'll be the first to state that.
I am saying move the GPU into a new slot to test if its the MB slot or not.
I'm not sure on the CPU either. In another thread here a lot of fellow HWC members state it is a really rare case to get a dead CPU from the start.
I have never had a DOA CPU yet, so I don't know the symptoms of that.
I am merely going with my thoughts to troubleshooting it from a VC problem standpoint.

Good Luck,

Seems to me this Beep Code indicates a "Memory" problem.....what is your digital diplay Code on the Mobo indicating? - Check this Code with the list of Post Codes in your Mobo Manual then Google it!! How much n how many sticks of Memory are you trying to Boot up with? Try leaving one stick in the Board and Booting with that, if successful in getting into BIOS check your voltage on the Memory.
Very unlikely that it is a GPU problem, but you can confirm if you someone with a PCI-E Board and try it.
