Yes, that could cause your display to not show anything. The 24 pin needs to be connected to the motherboard, while the eight pin (or four pin sometimes) needs to be connected to the CPU. If you have a graphic card, you will need to place the six or eight pin PCI-E connectors into the card if it requires any.

You need them both plugged in, the 8 pin provides power to the CPU and the 24 pin powers the motherboard. If you left off the 8 pin that would cause you to not get anything on your monitor.

You will need to plug both six pin PCI-E connections into the graphics card as well.
