Hello. I've just finished putting together my first build (with assistance), and though everything seems to be properly arranged and connected, nothing appears on the monitor. The motherboard lights up, as does the graphics card; all fans spin; it sounds like it is functioning, but despite all of this the monitor only displays "no connection".
I doubt it's the fault of the monitor as I've also tried another one downstairs, so I suspect it to be a graphics card problem, perhaps compatibility. Does that sound reasonable? Do you think it might be something else? Any advice is much appreciated.
After going over this list and making sure everything's in order the problem still persists exactly as it was before. I had overlooked the installation of the standoffs, so I removed the motherboard, added those, and then re-connected everything, and I've triple-checked that the memory and graphics card are properly seated, tried resetting the CMOS, along with being sure of the other warnings in the list.
This has got me stumped. I'm not sure of what my next step should be. Any thoughts?
