This is my first build and am having trouble getting a screen to come on when I turn it on. Any help would be appreciated. I have gone through and made sure everything was connected correctly. Thanks.

My system hardware:

AMD FX6300
Asus M5A97 R2.0
PNY Geforce GTX 660
2 - Kingston Hyper X Beast 4GB
Corsair CX430
Corsair 230T

Is the monitor plugged in correctly? Does your GPU have power? Does your monitor have power? Have you tried other monitors?

My monitor is working on my other computer. I tried the HDMI & older VGA style and neither worked.

I think the GPU has power since the fan is running on it.

I had already done the steps and nothing new changed. I'm at a loss.

It could be a monitor problem. Try it with a different monitor

Went through the breadboard build and coming up with the same issue of no video on monitor.

I have tried to find the post speaker, but the mobo didn't come with one and the GPU doesn't have on either. Is this an essential part of what I need to solve this problem or do I have a bad mobo.

If the mobo is bad then why would the led light up and cpu fan turn on?

Figured it out. My CPU wasn't locked into place. Newb mistake.
