I had posted awhile ago about putting together my first 486, but I didn't have pictures for the issue I was having.
I had bought the parts off of a FB group I'm in, and they should be enough to build a functioning system. I had had a recommendation to use a P8P9 power adapter so I wouldn't need to directly plug into the outlet. So, I got in the adapter along with a switch I could use to power the motherboard on so that I could see that it works.
I got the wrong switch type, so I had a buddy of mine modify what I got so that it could be used to ascertain whether or not the MB worked.
I plugged everything in, added a graphics card and CRT monitor, and tried it all out. Nothing seems to have happened. The monitor still reads "no signal," and I don't know how else to check to see if things were working.
Below are some pictures of the setup. If you need more, let me know and I'll provide more.
