Hi everyone. I just tried assembling a new computer, and after getting everything it, it powers up, but I get no picture or beep from the motherboard. Im fairly sure everything is plugged in - 6 pin to the video card, 24 pin and 4 pin to the mother board, fans are obviously in, HD is plugged in, and the power switch is working.

 

I am using:

AMD FX 8320 Black

Nvidia Geforce GT950

Gigabyte 970a-DS3P Motherboard

500W Raidmax Power Supply

8GB DDR3 Ram

1TB HD

 

 

Im somewhat new to this, so is there anything I could be missing here? I followed the directions closely. Im really worried I wrecked the CPU though - I had to press REALLY hard to get the second latch on the heatsink to fit. Hard enough that Im pretty much resigned to my fate, but I thought I better try asking people far more experienced than I.

 

Thank you so much for your time, and I'll be happy to provide any more necessary info.
