    Just picked up an ASUS EAX1950 Pro, when installed and boot up, i get a blank screen. No error beeps, system seems to boot up normally, have tried with 2 different monitors. have a ASUS P5L-VM 1394 board. have tried disabling onboard video to no avail. have also changed boot priority for display still nothing. I get the feeling i'm not thinking about something but i'm at a lost. any help would be appreciated.

    try the board with just the ram outside of the case. try clearing the cmos as found that to work to kickstart a stubborn system.
