Monitor is on stand-by when plugged into the mobo. Someone please help.

Hey there all readers, I needed some help with my newly built pc. When it was fully built is flipped the switch to turn it on. Every thing was running such as the graphics card, fans LEDs, and also the hdd. When I seemed to plug the monitor into the computer, it went into standby mode immediately. This is confusing me an making me worry too much. I keep thinking I f***ed up my gpu or CPU. I'm not sure if this will help a lot but the components are as listed

GPU-Gigabyte GTX 760 Oc
Processor- Amd Sempron 145 (planning on unlocking it)

Motherboard- ASRock 760GM-GS3 AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

HDD-Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

PSU-500 watts

Ram-G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS
Hope that helps and please, I've been waiting a while to build this and get a gamin computer that can actually run minecraft at 50 fps with shaders. Have a pleasant day.

  1. In your topic title, you say you have the monitor plugged in to the motherboard. If that is true, try plugging it in to the graphics card instead....
  2. Best answer
    Do you have the monitor attached to the graphics card or the mobo? You want it attached to the graphics card. Next, make sure you have your CPU power connected.
  3. It can't connect into the graphics card. It's a vga only thing and I don't have a VGA on the graphics card.
  4. Almost every card comes with an adapter, DVI to VGA. Plugging in a card makes it the default GPU.
  5. Look through the box the card came in, you should have the adapter. If not, they are like $5.
  6. Sorry if I seem a little stupid for asking this question. Had about a combined total of 12 hours of sleep this week. I didn't really feel like taking all the components out so I came here thank you all for your input.
