Hi

I have just finished building a computer and when I turn it on, all of the fans are running, including the one on the graphics card. However, the monitor is not displaying anything when I plug it in. I have tried two different monitors that worked for previous machines so I don't think the monitors are the issue. I'm wondering if anyone knows what might be wrong and how I could fix it.

I have the following:

Motherboard: Asus P7P55D-E Pro
Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 460
Processor: Intel i5-760 2.8 GHz Quad Core
Cooler: Zalman CNPS10X Extreme
Power: Cooler Master GX-750W
RAM: G.Skill Ripshaw Series 4GB (2x2GB)
Harddrive: Seagate 7200.12 (1TB)

Thanks

Your motherboard doesn't have the onboard graphic, right?

Are you sure 2 of the 6pin power connector cables are properly connected?

Or try boot with 1 stick of RAM only, see if that make changes...

The problem has been solved. I tried moving the RAM to different slots and it worked
