Hi, I just bought a bunch of new hardware and I've just installed it all in my last case, but for some reason all my monitors says is "no video input" like I don't have it plugged in. Its good stuff like:Pentium 4 2.5 w/HT tech., geforce FX5200, 120gb hardrive, and 512mb ram. Anyone with ideas will be appreciated!
(I've been working on it for about 3 hours now so I'd love some help!!!!)

StareSome one please help me.....

Well the graphics card is not too great.
Is it seated correctly? Does this motherboard also have onboard video? Is it still enabled in the BIOS? Are you plugging the monitor into the onboard graphics plug? (I've seen someone do that and then panic :-))

and make sure your video cards power connectors are connected to motherboard.

and make sure your video cards power connectors are connected to motherboard. The FX5200 doesn't have power connectors to the mobo. Have you turned off any integrated graphics on your mobo (if it has integrated graphics that is)

cheers
