I am new to building PC’s, so not really knowing what to look for is some of the problem. I did read the http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/ [...] t-problems and the only thing I see here that I did not do was put in a case speaker. I am new and thought the mother board had that on it, didn’t know I had to get one. I have ordered one though but don’t see a place to put it on my mother board. The processor it running I see all the lights for it up it the right hand side of the mother board on. The video card gets warm. Just nothing comes up on the monitor. I’m starting to think this is my monitor not kicking on it just stays in sleep mode and says it has no video signal when I power it on. Your thoughts?
"No video" problems are very common. In fact, that's why the sticky was created. If you're absolutely sure the CPU power connector is plugged in and both PCI-E connectors are plugged into the GPU then I would focus on steps 6 - 8 next to rule out the RAM as the problem. Putting the RAM in the wrong slots, not setting the RAM values correctly in the BIOS, or faulty RAM are all pretty common causes of "no video" problems.
