I am using an EVGA GTX 770 and when I turn on my monitor an error message pops up and reads "DVI No Signal"
I've connected the DVI cable from my GPU to the monitor
I've connected both the 8pin and 6 pins into the GPU, from my PSU

Can someone tell my why I cannot get any signal? Do I need to connect my GPU to the Motherboard with a DVI cable, because as of right now, the Motherboard and GPU are only connected by the PCIe slot on the motherboard.
Not sure what else I can do. The GPU fans are spinning and everything seems fine. I do not have an extra monitor to pinpoint the error, but I am still under warranty for both the GPU and Monitor, so returning them is also an option.

Also, I can post pictures of the plugs if it is needed

Motherboard: ASUS Z87-PRO
GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 770
PSU: Rosewill Capstone 650w 80+ Gold Certified ATX
Monitor: Asus VG248QE 144Hz 24.0"

Make sure your motherboard bios is up to date. Try reseating the graphics card and clean the PCIE slot while you're at it. Make sure the PCIE power connectors are completely inserted in the card.

1. You might have to tell your monitor which input to accept using the monitor's buttons since now-a-days, most monitors will accept input from I guess up to four different types of inputs.

2. you may have to into your bios and set the video use the PCI-Ex slot.

The Bios suggestion to use the PCI-E slot is a definite must check.

I know it sounds stupid but make sure your cable is plugged into the graphics card and not the motherboard DVI output. You would be suprised how often that happens.

I'm relatively new to building PC's as you might be able to tell, i know where the BIOS light is on my motherboard but I am not sure what you are suggesting. How to I go into BIOS and set my video use to the PCI-Ex slot? Also I check the input source for my monitor, I am using a DVI cable, and the monitor is set the the DVI input.

I'll check the manual for the motherboard to see how to change BIOS settings.

Actually it is impossible to get into your BIOS unless you have a video signal. Missed that, Sorry

Try using a different cable if you have it. If you have a CPU that has a graphics component try using the motherboard video output.
