Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
No its not possible. Processor fits in one way only Hope it has an inbuilt VGA port, right?
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
If so, you can remove graphics card and connect monitor cable to motherboard VGA port
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes. Tried connecting the monitor to it also. Not working, I guess it is because the card has not been configured yet.
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
You must remove Graphics card and check
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
Is it how you checked?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Motherboard does not have a VGA. I only see a HDMI port and a connector for the printer. But what bothers me is that along the same panel is the keyboard connection and the mouse and these are not working either.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No did not remove the gfx but I will now.
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
ok, please remove it and check for display
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Still nothing
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
ok
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
What you mean when you say " keyboard connection and the mouse and these are not working either"
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
How did you confirm it?(Is it LED light from mouse is not coming..)When you power on PC
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
On the I/O Panel attached to the motherboard. I have the monitor plug into the HDMI port, the keyboard plug into it's connector and the USB moue in a USB port. I should see the keyboard and mouse light up when the computer is booted as well as the monitor. None these are occurring and the ram is still out and there is no no beeps. I have n sound!
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
Hope RAM and Graphics card is outPlease connect RAM (If two connect only 1 RAM) and turn on PC. Check for display
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
1 RAM installed. Nothing!
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 1 year ago.
ok, At this point i should say there is some issue on motherboard / processor side .. This should be checked from vendor side. Since i have no more ideas, i shall opt out to see if my colleagues has some other optionsThanks,Fiyaz

My name is***** will help you too the best of my ability. From what I have read most of the steps, you have took leads me too believe that it's the CPU at fault. If it was not installed correctly, it can bend the pins that run under it or on the board and thus, ruin either of them. You can try and see if there are any that are bent or broken off. Did you also, apply the heat paste between the heat sink and CPU? It seems that prior your build was getting a lack of power and thus could of been one of the problems. I recommend that you least have a min of 550 Watt Power. I will try and look at your boards manual too see if there is anything, relating too, what needs too be done if this should happen later. From what you said that it does not have on board video? Is it possible for you too attach it HDMI? Some times, when you attach a video card it will change it in the BIOS so that it displays too the card however, you may need too set this separate. It is also, possible that the card was put in the wrong slot and not compatible with the board.

Hi,
I removed the video card. I also double checked the install of the CPU it is seated correctly. There is glue between the CPUand the heat sink, no problems there. My power supply is a EVGA bronze 600b. I must admit the wiring coming from the power supply is a bit confusing for me but I believe I attached all necessary wiring. I am wondering, however, if there is some connection n the motherboard that needs attachment to enable the I/O panel that I overlooked.I remove the graphics card and reset the system. I am unable to adjust the BIOS since I can't see it. My morther board is a Asrock z97 extreme 4 and the graphics card is a EVGA GTX960 SC 2GB 1X DDHDP.

Can you give the full make and model of the motherboard?
