View Full Version : First time booting up

05-12-2007, 11:01 AM
I bought a Newegg.com - Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail . Since it didnt have a onboard video card, I purchased a seperate geforce 7100gs. I installed the hardware into my case (Power Supply Unit / motherboard / 1gb ram / dvd drive / sata hd/ and the geforce) when I plug it in to setup bios/xp my monitor shows says it's connected but it is just a black screen.

How would I correct this problem so I can see my screen to setup bios/xp? When I turn it on, my keyboard wont power on and my dvd device won't open. All my fans run flawlesssly, my onboard chipsetfan and my cpu fan and I hear my hd booting up.

Are you sure you've got everything connected correctly?

As Driftwood said Are you sure everything is plugged in correctly?
Have you tried plugging in another monitor?
