So I recently bought parts for a computer and put it together this morning. Everything turned on, lights fan, everything. However, there was never display to the monitor. I tried two different monitors both trying an hdmi cable and then vga. I read somewhere that you have to use your motherboard's on board graphics to then install the drivers for the graphics card. (I read that this is for all setups) But, my motherboard does not have on board graphics. So, how do I install the drivers for my graphics card without motherboard graphics. Or is that not even my problem? Please help.
Also this is my first build so I'm new and not the most experienced so I appologize for my lack of knowledge
Ok. Like Eduello said, if you can barrow a GPU, install it and see what happens. If you get display, you know that your GPU is bad. If you don't get a display, move on to the next part. Could be RAM, could be motherboard. You don't really know unless you use known good components for each one. It can be time consuming and sometimes frustrating but once you find the defective part, you feel good to know that you resolved it.
