Answers :

Make sure the power supply switch on the back is set to 115v, its normally a red switch but could be black.

Once you do that see if you can turn on the computer and get video.

If not then with the computer turned off, take out the memory sticks and reseat them one at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the computer to see if you get video. If you still don't get video then try taking out the CPU and reseating it back into its socket properly. At the same time make sure there is no dust or dirt on the cpu or in the socket.

Try again and see if you get video. If you don't get any video this time then disconnect everything and only have power going to the motherboard. If you do this and you still don't have video then the motheboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
