First Build, No Signal & Post but Fans spinning (Possibly Bent Pins)

Hi, I have finished building my first PC and when I powered it on the fans start spinning, case light, gpu fans, motherboard lights and h80i gt lights all come on but on my monitor I get no signal, I have already tried the steps on the forum to trouble shoot this but I have had no luck.

I am using a 1 year old HDMI cable from my graphics card to the monitor and I have already tried from the motherboard but still no signal on the monitor. I was also wondering if It could be the fact that it seems there is a couple bent pins on the motherboard socket.

Bent pins are on the very right in the middle

Also should be noted the first time I powered it on I didn't have a monitor connected and my power supply comes from the US and I used a converter because of the US cable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Remove the graphics card and try using the integrated graphics on the CPU by plugging the HDMI into the motherboard. And for future reference, the video cable always goes into the video card if it's present, not the motherboard.

    I tried this and still have had no luck, I'm pretty sure the 2 bent pins (not 100% sure if they are actually bent) on the motherboard are causing it not to post.

    Yes bent pins could cause this.

    could using a different cable (using HDMI at the moment) get it to work?
  5. It never hurts to try, but rarely is that the issue.
