Re: [vox-tech] failed to build a computer

I didn't use antistatic wrist strap but before the installation I touched the metal to di-static myself. The components were not damaged, 'cause eventually I found someone who had similar issues and offered a solution and it worked, btw, I also tried the approaches he did before the successful shot, here is the link:

Does the cpu fan come on? Do the keyboard lights blink? If you
have another video card that doesn't need its own power I would
try that too. Are you using an antistatic wrist strap? If the
keyboard lights blink it is probably booting somewhat normally
except with no video.
