Help with My new Compuer Please

LAST EDITED ON Apr-27-02 AT 04:56 PM (EST)

I am attempting to build my own computer and ofcourse I am having problems. Heres what I have so far.

M7VIB (BIOSTAR) motherboard with onboard audio
256MB RAM DIMM from Crucial.com
and I have a SILURO AGP T400 video card
Quantum Fireball 60G HDD

I am having trouble getting the MBC to show up onto the monitor.
I have installed the CPU the Memory and put the video card into its AGP slot. When I turn the computer on I get a few beeps, but nothing shows up onto the monitor (yes the monitor is plugged in and swithced on)

Can anyone help me ? Is it a video card problem or something else ?

Before I visited this site I did connect the HDD and the CDROM to the mother board and tried booting it, would that have some how affected the MBC ?

If you can help please do, and thanks - Tim

Beeps are usually caused by the video board or memory. Suggest reseating both. See the third question at http://duxcw.com/faq/mb/mb.htm, and search this forum and the site with the site search to the left for more steps. You will find lots of info. There have been a couple of posts in these foums on similar problems recently. Larry
