I just got all my components installed and got the computer to run to set up BIOS and now for some reason I cant get the monitor to display any picture, after it already has been doing so. Any thoughts?

Have you reset your CMOS to revert the BIOS back to default, which is when it last showed a picture? I would do that first to help rule out possible BIOS adjustment error causing it not to boot.

If you still get no picture after resetting the CMOS, you should look at the GPU and make sure it is seated properly and has the PSU connected correctly. Also, review and complete the checklist in this sticky... http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-read-postin...

Thanks for the help. What I did was cleared RTC RAM. I thought that I had already did this, but apparently not. I dont know what it did but it worked.
