Hello! I just built a new computer but sadly, my computer isn't showing up on my monitor. Everything is fired up (as far as I know) but I can't get it to display on my monitor. I did happen to get into my bios once but when I turned it off and booted it back up, it doesn't pop up any more.

I have previously built a computer before so I do have a little experience with building. I think I have everything, being all of my parts and power supply cords, plugged in the correct spots. When I turn on my computer, everything fires up. My two case fans, CPU fan, GPU fans, disc drive, hard drive, and even a light on my motherboard turns on. I just can't get it to display on my monitor.

I have tried on my 1680x1050 monitor, and my 1080p TV thinking it could be my displays but I prove that conception wrong because I can get my other rig to show up on both my TV and monitor. I have tried the HDMI and DVI outputs and have had no luck from either. I am very confused what to do here because I feel like I have almost did everything. My first boot up, my ASUS BIOS did pop up. (Another confirmation that my parts are working because my CPU, GPU, RAM, and HD showed up in BIOS). After the first boot up, I turned it off. Right after I turned it on again but... the BIOS did not come up again which started my problem.

These are all of my computer specs:
CPU: AMD FX-8120 @ 3.1GHZ
GPU: SAPPHIRE RADEON HD 7750 2GB GDDR5
MOBO: ASUS M5 A97 LE R2.0
RAM: KINGSTON HYPER-X (2x4GB) 1333 MHZ
HDD: SEAGATE BARRACUDA 1TB 7200RPM
PSU: CORSAIR CX 500
CASE: COOLER MASTER STORM ENFORCER
BURNER: LITE ON DVD/CD WRITER/BURNER
OS: WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM 64X

I have tried all suggested from this thread with no luck:

Thanks for your time, I put a lot into this and I hope someone can in turn put a lot of time into their response!

Do you know of exactly how to go about doing so on my specific motherboard? I don't believe there is a battery that you can simply take out.

*UPDATE* I just figured there is a battery hidden behind where my graphics card is installed, should I remove that and put it back in?

Yes you can remove the battery or check your manual for the location of the CLRTC jumper

It's been stuck on "recover BIOS setting." for about 5 minutes. How long does it usually take for it to get back to normal? Is this the right thing it's supposed to be doing?

after you clear CMOS you need to load BIOS default values or tweak manually
