So I just got my cyberpowerpc and monitor and went to setup everything up and when I booted the computer up the monitor said no signal. Its an LG monitor, brand new out of the box. the computer is brand new also. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

it's either not connected properly, or something is wrong with your hardware.

test the monitor on a different pc.

test the pc with a different monitor.

that should be a good start.

make sure the connection between the gpu and monitor is correct? and that your not connected to a video port on the motherboard.

considering its brand new, have you called cyberpower? sometimes things get loose during shipping.

If you have a graphics card make sure you are using the input that is on that and not the ones on the motherboard.

The GPU ones will be the ones in the expansion ports and not the ones grouped with the USB, Nnetwork and sound ports.

Ok, then that is the issue. they only problem is i dont see any dvi ports on the graphics card.

UPDATE
Actaully I see 2 DVI but they are DVI-I and DVI-D, but I the cord I have doesnt fit. (Sorry im a noob) and I have a GTX 760 if that helps.

I am a dumbass lol, I see the DVI ports. I had a VGA cord plugged into the mobo. The monitor i have doesnt have a DVI port, only a HDMI and VGA. So do I need a VGA/DVI converter? or could I use HDMI? (Like I said I am a bit of a noob, sorry)

Check the cable at the end and the port you are plugging into and make sure the ports look the same.

It should go into the DVI-D port.




Update: Get a HDMI to DVI connector. This means that they will both be digital inputs (VGA is analog).
