backstory: yesterday I put everything together and was able to get it displayed on a monitor and install windows 8. The power supply didnt have the correct 6-pin PCI-express slot, so I went our and bought the 500W PSU with the correct slot for the GPU. I went home, replugged in everything with the new powersupply and installed the graphics card. Everything seemed to work fine, all the fans were spinning including the one on the GPU. I go to plug it into my tv with an hdmi cable and i get no signal. I realized i was stupid and never put drivers in for my motherboard and graphics card; i figured that was the problem or i need to change the graphics from the integrated GPU to the newly installed one. I try and connect the computer to a monitor and i get no signal. Try and differnet monitor and the same result. I thought maybe it was the power supply wasnt enough so i unplugged the GPU and new fan that were newly installed and still no signal. Im hoping i just need drivers or to change the BIOS but Im starting to get worried that i may have broken something or fried my motherboard. All the fans and LEDs and such continue to work when i plug it in so im starting to get quite concerned. What do you think the problem is? Thanks in advance!

Thank you for your response! And after i installed the new PSU i connected back each connection and double checked and triple checked to make sure each cable is correctly installed. All of the fans and LEDs work just fine as well. As for the cmos, this is my issue. If i cant connect it to a monitor how could i change those settings?
