I bought parts off of newegg.com and I built the computer today... I do not have windows installed yet as I am getting it from a friend of mine. I plugged it into my screen and turned it on which it beeps, lights up turns on perfectly but does not show anything on screen, I was just wondering if that was bad? as I looked it up online and I could not find any info on this specifically.

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

RE: HD 6850 did you connect the 6-pin PCIe from the PSU?

yes, I did... the fans on it are working so I think so! I just double checked to make sure and it is an 8 pin PCI Express connection...

I do have to mention that I hooked up this computer to an old lcd screen that I have with the adaptor it
came with!

The MSI P67A-G43 (B3) has 2 PCIe slots; the top is the Default but if there's a problem you might want to try the 2nd {Blue} PCIe x8 slot. The DVI - VGA adapters work fine; never seen a bad one -- knock on wood -- yet.

The next step is to eliminate a grounding issue - unscrew both the MOBO and PCIe screws and dangle the MOBO away from the standoffs and I/O shield and supported by a towel.

IF you have an aftermarket HSF with a metal backplate then make certain there's no metal to MOBO contact.

These steps may seem odd but they often are the culprit. The nest step is to pull the Headers - USB & Front with the exception of the 'Power' button -- you can even short that with a screwdriver of wire if needed.

Hi guys,

I hooked it up with an HDMI to my tv and it worked fine so it had to be the cable I used to hook up to the old monitor... I feel stupid. lol!

Thank you
