    Default blank screen after assembling a pc

    hello,

    i did my first setup, and I have used a GA-880GM-UD2H with a X4 955 and 1600mhz corsair ram.

    But after assembling all the parts together i have got a blank screen :/ After reading the specification on the gigabyte website i found out that the motherboard is not supporting the 1600MHz Ram is that an issue ?

    Also i have got XFX 5870 graphic card but the card is slightly blocking most of the SATA ports and i only have an access to one but I have to move the card a little bit to the right.

    I have tried many many options with one ram stick and reseating the CPU, and still i have got a blank screen.

    thanks for help anyway :)

    The screen is black but the system seems to work?
    Which port have you connected the monitor to, the built in or the one on the card?
    The memory does not run at 1600 yet, you will have to set it manually to run at 1600.

    yes all the fans are working correctly, i did try to plug to the onboard graphics and the 5870 still i have blank screen.

    So the ram is still going to work even if the motherboard doesnt support those speeds ?

    Try without the graphics card installed.
    Which revision is the board?

    You could try clearing cmos by removing mb battery for 30mins,are you using the two 6pin connectors from psu for your 5870? Your ram will run at stock speed,all you have to do is raise memory multiplier so it runs at 1600mhz,manufacturers only quote stock ram speeds

    i dont have those parts back yet from the RMA, but from there i have got told that all of my parts are working correctly but they weren't when I assembled them.

    When i was connecting in my graphic card, i did plug 2x6 pin connectors, as well as other 8pin for CPU and the long one is it 12pin or so for motherboard

    What parts did you return? If they tested with a different psu then it could be that? Or memory?

    I would say to re read your manuals for the building process "Check and double check your work" Examine all yoru BIOS settings especially the one that deals with selecting your graphics option onboard or an installed graphics card. If your BIOS is set to onboard graphics and you connect to the add in card there will be trouble, I think.

    I did return the motherboard, RAM, and CPU - as what i have got told they have tested all those parts together, so they had to use different PSU than i have.

    So before i send out those parts i have assembled them together and I did get a blank screen

    If you can first I would test your 5870 in another pc just to make sure its not faulty,then I would test with another psu,but if like you say you had blank screen even with onboard graphics then it only leaves the psu as possible fault/incompatibility

    Did you remove mb battery for 30mins then try?
