Hello guys,

For the first time I built a pc myself.
Problem occured when I was testing it,I turned it on,everything was running,no beeps or anything.
Monitor won't respond whatever I do,not even when I put it in the VGA of the motherboard

What I already tried :
- Switched RAM
- Took graphics card out and put it back in
- Tried another monitor
- Tried different cable
- Checked if all the power cords were in good ( hopefully i did that good,but it's my first time)

Specs

Mobo = ASRock B75 Pro3
CPU = Intel i5-3350P
GPU = GTX 660
PSU = XFX PRO550W
RAM = GeIL 8 gb DDR
HDD = WD 1TB Green edition
SSD = 120GB Kingston V300 Now

Hopefully you guys can help me solve this because I really want to try out my new pc

can you test on another monitor?
What cable / adapter are you using ?
Did you plug the extra power for the video card?

Indeed, I tested it on 2 monitors now and both times it didn't work so i thought it wasn't a problem with the monitor

The only thing I can suggest is take out one of the hard drives (One without the operating system on it) and take out the graphics card. Then plug the monitor into the onboard graphics and try booting. If it does boot then theres something wrong with one or both parts, if it doesn't boot then obviously something worse is wrong

gpu,cpu and psu fans are running,lights on the ram are on,same goes for the light on the gpu.
I have been trying to search if there is a led light on the mobo to see if it's running but can't find any info about that
Fairly sure everything is connect properly

both drives have no OS on them,both new
And ok, I will try this

And dammit I clicked the wrong button on a reply and now my post says "solved"

Your motherboard is working the fans wouldn't be spinning if it wasn't.

They've already said that all fans - gpu, cpu, psu are spinning. Please stop asking questions that have already been answered.

8 Pin CPU power,has nothing to do with spinning or fans.

Sorry, I only just realised :S. The problem was though that you were asking things like "Have you tried onboard graphics" and "Did you test on another monitor" when had already stated that he had

Oh right ok, also, I entered you parts on the site PcPartPicker and it says that all the parts are compatible so compatibility as far as Im aware isn't an issue.

Okay so my last resort was to remove my cpu and put it back in again and i put back the 8pin cpu power and it works !
So or my processor chip wasnt in good or that cable wasnt in good,dont know what else what it was but im glad it works now
Installing windows as we speak, thank you both !
