    I have been attempting to upgrade my PC however I have encountered the following problems.

    My current hardware can be found under the User CP, I will list the new Hardware here.

    System after upgrade:

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L (Brand New)
    Memory: CM2X2048-6400C5 G (Corsair 2GB DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 Xtreme Performance Memory CL5) (Also Brand new)
    Power Supply: Corsair VX 550w
    Graphics Card: ATI Sapphire 5750 (1GB)
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 @1.86Ghz (Non overclocked)

    Once constructing the above system the following occurs when attempting to start the system:

    The Good:
    -Upon pressing the power button, all system fans are active (Chassis, CPU, GPU)
    -There is extensive optical drive activity despite there not being a disk of any description in place
    -Everything seems to be recieving power

    The bad:
    -There is no video output at all.
    -It looks like the system might be attempting to boot however it is not visible.
    -Upon pressing the delete key to view the BIOS, No video output remains a problem.
    -I am unable to determine if the BIOS is being accesed or not.

    I have tried:
    -Using the Onboard VGA output instead
    -Double checking all connectors

    We can rule out the possibility of a broken VGA cable or monitor as they are working justnow. The VGA connector is connected to a VGA to DVI convertor which is currently connected to the Sapphire 5750. This will hopefully be the same setup with the GA-G41M-ES2L if and when it works.

    The Motherboard and RAM are brand new so they should be in working order.

    The RAM that I am currently using with my AsRock 945GCM-S might be compatible with the GA-G41M-ES2L however I have not yet had a chance to try this..

    I currently suspect either:

    A - The Corsair RAM is not compatible
    B - The Motherboard is unfunctional.

    Any ideas would be apreciated! Thanks in advance.
