I recently purchased the following PC components: Gigabyte XKT-1155 Z68AP-D3, along with Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU, Kingston 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC and Asus nVIDIA GeForce 210 Graphics Card (512MB, DDR3, PCI Express 2.0, HDMI).
I did setup the computer and I think I did it right. Basically everything inside starts loading ( the LEDs start working the fans too ), but I don't see anything on my screen, nor any of the peripherals are working ( I tried both USB and PS2 keyboards ). Also the computer is not making any alert sounds ( beep ).
Does anyone have a clue of what the problem might be, or any sort of advice?
( also, this is a working computer, so that's why I've picked that specific video card :) )
Edit: After looking through the interwebs, I only found one relevant topic on this question, which is here, but the problem I'm having is that I'm not allowed to post on that forum, even though I registered and activated my account.
I narrowed down the issue. Problem was that I had an 'Ivy bridge' processor which is not supported by the motherboard unless you update the BIOS. Which pretty much sucks, as I'm supposed to order another processor, update the BIOS version and start using the i5.
Solution? I've ordered another motherboard, Asus P8Z77-V LX it's called :)
