I have never built a pc before but my friend needs one and we had a few parts so we thought we could put one together. we have the processor and the motherboard together with the disk and hard drives in. the power supply and a few fans and ram, when we power it on everything starts to run as normal but we cant get a response from the monitor when we plug it in (the motherboard has onboard graphics and worked a few months ago before I had it replaced) The hard drive is my old drive with an operating system already installed. Is it something stupid I am doing or is it something slightly more complicated and I should give up? Thanks

What are the parts exactly?

Also do you know if the motherboard has a piezo buzzer on (also called a "PC speaker)? The computer should be beeping.

Ahhh.....those piezo's. As useful as they are they are now rarely found with motherboards or cases. Only a buck and change. Picked up a bagful on last trip to my supplier. Never build a PC without one.

One other thing to watch. As advanced format drives are becoming somewhat mainstream, one needs to be careful of being compatible with their gear when making drive purchases.
