Here is a really good checklist to use. Some of them will seem obvious, but double check them anyways. Sorry to hear you're having troubles, and I hope they resolve soon!http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-steps-posting-post-boot-video-problems
Hi thanks for responding! I did find that checklist and I discovered that I've made a pretty newbie mistake. I didn't plug anything into the socket next to the processor, the 8 pin one (number 2 on that list). I didn't get a cable that has 8 pins, all I have was the 6 pin pci-e cables I got with the power supply. Is there some way to make that work?
