Why won't my newly built PC display video?

I've built this computer. When I power it on, all of the fans work, the lights come on, the DVD drive works, and it had no beeps. With that being said, there's not output video. I've tried it on two different monitors with HDMI and VGA connection. Can someone please take a look to see if I 'am missing anything? The only thing I can think of being the problem is maybe the hard drive, being that a friend gave me the drive as he had it lying around. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Motherboard: MSI FM2-A75MA-E35

CPU: AMD A10-5800K APU 3.8Ghz

PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX 430 Watt

RAM: Kingston ValueRAM 4GB 1600MHz DDR3

HDD: 320 GB Western Digital HDD (I got this hard drive from a friend of mine. He used it in another computer and had it lying around)

I've went through this checklist, but it seems that it didn't do the trick. I'm still having the same issue.

many times the FM2A75MAE35 mobo will have a problem displaying from the APU, it seems the only fix is to call MSI and have them send you another mobo, or to try a different BIOS setting, get a seperate graphics card, borrow one if u cant, then simply set up the computer, go into the settings, and fix it from there, i have to do that every time i buy this mobo, even though it is a great one for the price
