That seems to be the reply when no video signal is received by the monitor, should be the same if not plugged in and simply turn on monitor. Not much info provided by you but some motherboards with internal graphics are set to run with just that, you must set bios to peg for an external graphics card if that's the case. If so remove discreet graphics card and then of monitor lights up set bios for Peg (discreet card). Again not enough info new PSU is it set for 110 or 220 volts. Don't plug in any more than you have to initially till you can see system come alive. I have heard of some systems which won't light up with at least a Hdrive plugged in but thats hard to believe.

how about some spacing and punctuation I got lost reading that 3x




I agree though. Need more info. The no signal message is generic in the extreme.
