I get on the screen "Please Check The Signal cable" And I get NO BEEPS. HDDS are spinning. CPU fan running.

I read through the forum to find out what others have said and tryed and tryed a few of my own.

This PC i built hasnt been running yet. So can't see BIOS, nor can update any drivers.

Right now I only got the on Board Video card, since I haven't got any PCI express X16 card yet (I may get one when I get more money).

Here's what I tryed. Unplugging card that connects the video card and repluging it, I tryed that a few times. Removing the the 2 RAM I had and tryed one of them at the time. PCI slots are empty at the moment. I tryed to only put the one HDD on my IDE Controler, instead of two. I cleared the CMOS (jumper). removed floppy cable.

You would think the MB would beep if there were an error.

Here are my spec:
ASUS MB P5GV-MX
CPU Pentuim 4, 3.20GHz
2 x 512MB RAM DDR
2HDDS (Master: Maxtor 6.4GB, works fine, Slave Maxtor (i think) 40GB)
1 Floppy drive.
15inch CRT monitor (working).

How old is that monitor and have you tested the system with a newer one?

Anyway, A professional looked at it and told me it was a faulty MB cause he could get it to work.

Am I to assume it's an onboard chipset and not a graphics card? If so, why can't you try a graphics card?

There are two things to check before you throw in the towel and declare the mobo dead. One is to look in the BIOS and see if you can disable the onbiard chip set, then try a graphics card. The other is to look for jumpers on the mobo itself to do that.
