    I have this question (hope its not a silly one!!)

    I have this board abit kt7a, i put an ahtlon 1.4. it has nothing else except for an agp video card, i havent put any drives just the cpu and ram. Can i plug a monitor to it to see if it boot? or do i need to put a HD first???? Cause i just wanna tested to enter the bios is that possible???

    Turn it on & see what happens. I think you should be able to do it. Just make sure no wires are exposed.

    should work, are the power lights on case showing? if not check you've plugged power supply in correctly to m/board. also make sure keyboard is plugged in correctly and that monitor is plugged in and turned on, sounds silly but sometime we miss the obvious!!

    ok.......the board its atx so the power suplly goes only in one way but i will check to see if its no plugin correctly........the lights of the case are showing, hd lights no cause aint any drive on it not even a floopy.......so the only light showing is the power.......keyboard is plug (doesnt have mouse...can that be it?) monitor is plug correctly that was the first thing i check...........i'm gonna eat and take a shower and will check again....

    shouldn't be the lack of mouse, but may be worth a try. do you get anything at all on monitor? have you checked monitor on another system to make sure it is ok?

    ok, if monitor works etc then it may be that you haven't connected the pin wires for power LED, reset LED etc correctly, check manual if you have it to see that these are all ok.

    are you sure m/board and CPU are ok?

    just stabbing in dark here, can to hard to sort without system in front of you!

    I built a system for my g/f with a KT7A.. it wouldn't post at all unless you had a 3 pin cpu fan connection in fan1 slot..and also make sure your mouse port isn't all mangled in the case..

    it took an one RMA and a good stomping to get that thing to work for me.. :)

    hopefully the stomp will do it, RMA is not an option
