I just threw a system together today and have run into a brick wall here. I'm using a AMD 940, MSI 790X motherboard, ASUS 4870, and a Silverstone 650 watt power supply. I was using a 550, and when I powered on, the power would flicker, and the PC wouldn't post. I hadn't even put the RAM in. Duh. However, the PC still wouldn't post, so I tried a better power supply. Still no post. I tried an old x300 in the system, and it posted. I then figured that the video card might be bad. I then tried the video card in a different system, and it booted right up. Any thoughts on what the problem could be? All the plugs are in. I can't figure out the issue.
