Hello guys, I have been away from the building of my new pc for a couple of months (not had the best of times lately in my family life). A couple of months ago I did the external build and fired it up and all was ok. I finished the complete internal build yesterday, pushed the power button, all the equipment fired up ok but I had the black screen of death, nothing. I checked all the connections all seems ok, then I unplugged all the connections so that there was only the essential ones connected, fired it up and still nothing! I then stripped off the CPU cooler and had a look at the chip and chip mount, the only thing that I can see is that there seemed to be about two pins bent over (it is hard to tell they are so small), but I have not removed the chip since the external build when it worked ok.
Thanks for your help,
