No Signal on new setup

Just built a barebones setup using G'byte GA-71XE4 mobo, 1.3GHz AMD Duron, GForce2Ti graphics 10.2GB HDD, 128MB SDRAM. Mobo dipswitch set to 100MHz. My problem is I am not getting a signal to the monitor all fans are running and the HDD is doing its thing (no O/S yet) the reset and shutdown is working ok so I guess I've connected them right. I've tried a different PSU, Graphics card and monitor to no avail. Any help appreciated

This is an oldish mobo and may need a bios upsate to support the 1.3 duron.

If its been used b4 try reseting the cmos.

Do you have an old pci graphics card you can try?

As far as I am aware this BIOS supports up to 1.4GHz. CMOS has been reset, I even checked the battery which is showing 3v.
No, I don't have a pci graphics.

Can I assume that if the HDD is being read, which appears to be the case judging by the activity, then the CPU is OK?. I've also changed the SDRAM.

how many beeps do you hear when you turn on the machine? If you turn on the machine with no graphics card then you should hear several beeps, if not, some other hardware is incompatible or faulty or configured wrong for you mobo.

Not getting any beeps with or without either graphics, mouse or keyboard plugged in.

All connections made. That's how I'm switching on and off.

Faulty cable between your PC and monitor?

  sil_ver 15:42 27 Oct 03

Nope! tried a different monitor

If your motherboard does not beep with no graphics card plugged in then your system has a problem with either the processor or memory.
I assume it doesnt have built in graphics on the motherboard as well as an agp slot?
