My motherboard wont power my monitor after instillation of new processor, motherboard, and power supply.

Installed new components into an old shell because of blue screen of death. I have the motherboard installed correctly, processor and PSU all run fine when i power on, but no monitor. I don't have a video card so that eliminates that problem. The monitor is plugged in the socket and the VGA cable is plugged in both the monitor and the motherboard.
I don't have a system speaker and after reading many posts, i know that this is an essential piece to troubleshooting (i'm going to pick on up today). I've WOKRED through all of the steps on the cheklist (that i can do w/o a monitor) and still no screen....Any ideas on why my monitor isn't powering up????

Motherboard: Asus P8H 61-M LE
Processor: Intel i5 3.1
PSU: Eagle 500 Watt
RAM: 4 GB 1333MHz
Harddrives: Seagate 1tb, 500gb stock c drive
case is a stock compaq case
operating system hasn't been installed yet
dvd/cdrw drive
firewire port
