I have some experience to building gaming pcs but this is puzzling to me. When I turn on my computer all the fans and LEDs and hard drive start to work but no display on the monitor. This is my computer specs.
Gigabyte 78lmt-usb3
Amd fx 8320 8 core 3.5ghz
500w ps
16gb stick of ram
2gb graphics card
1tb hard drive
I don't know what's causing this to not display.

Hi
If you have GA-78LMT-USB3 rev. 4.1 and BIOS under v. F3 you gonna see only BLACK screen !
AMD fx 8320 is suppoeted on BIOS v. F3
- so upgrade the bios will fix you problem

If you have GA-78LMT-USB3 rev. 5 you better start trobleshooting
- there is only one BIOS ver. FA - and AMD fx 8320 is suppoeted
In that case you have some other problem

Leave the system with 1 x GPU and 1 x RAM
Rote the components to see where you hit black screen again

I knew you gonna ask this :) 

OK :
BIOS versions are " data " for the Mainboard how to Clock the specific CPU`s
If you BIOS ver. is missing the " data " for you installed CPU it simply does not boot - you see some life in it but no POST on the screen ...... or black or NO SIGNAL .......

BIOS UPGRADE :
- you have to install TEMPORARY CPU that MODEL is supported by the CURRENT BIOS version
- when you have 100 % working system you can start the upgrade BIOS to the last available on the Manifacturer web site
- go to the :
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
- READ THE BIOS UPGRADE STEPS !
- when you done
- power off
- switch back you first CPU
- done - peace of cace :) 

to skip you next q-n :
"How to find my current BIOS ver. ? "
- it is writen on the Mainboard case and on the Mainboard itself ....
- look for the BIOS chip arial also .....

and once you`v got it :
" What CPU i need to insert ? "
- look in this
