    I remember. Have you tried connecting the monitor directly to the onboard video out and remove the graphics card?

    You should also try clearing the CMOS.

    Recheck all connections. Try only the power supply, motherboard, CPU, and RAM. Remove all the other parts and see if it starts.

    Somebody actually took our suggestions and built a system?

    Crap.

    I guess that random lists of parts culled from Newegg won't work anymore.

    Disclaimer:
    We only told you to buy the parts, not install them.
    We are big fans of the pics full of shiny new components and expensive looking boxes, but have no clue how to make them work together.

    Kids, that is a job for professionals...do NOT try this at home!

    Does it beep, light up, fans spin or do anything? Remember that we cannot see what you see. Tell us more.

    Are you sure that everything is connected properly?

    i hear no beeps, the case light comes on when power up as well as the cdrw light, the cpu fan spins, and i am almost certain everything is correctly hooked up.

    update: i got the computer to boot to the bios now and it is detecting drive, all i did was take cpu fan off and put it back on but the only way it comes on monitor is through vid card and not mobo plug-in.
