No video Output

On startup the LED light is on, CPU fan on. Normal beep on start up. Hard drive sounds of function, meaning I think the hard drive is functioning. No video output.

Third or forth time building a comp, but its brand new.

Built computer and received continuous beeps from the on board speaker. Figured it was the video card since it did not have both 6 pin plugs plugged in. Only had one. Bought a new power source that had two 6 pin plugs, previous one did not. Reconnected all plugs. Made sure all were connected. Beep is gone. Now, no video. Plugged in monitor to laptop and received video output. Monitor is working. Whats next?

More about video output
  1. I also tried to take out one of the ram sticks and used only one still no luck.
  2. I also get a normal one beep at startup.
  3. Have you tried plugging your monitor into the onboard video? From the looks of it your mobo supports DVI and VGA, so try your monitor on both of those ports and see what you get.
  4. I tried the VGA on the MB and the DVI on the graphics card still no results. The DVI on the mobo is a DVI D while the adapter I have is a DVI-I dual link. Should I buy a compatible adapter before proceeding? This would be great if it fixed the problem.
  5. Any other ideas?
  6. Did you pull your video card when attempting to do vga output from your motherboard , or was it still in your system?
  7. I pulled out the video card and hooked up the vga with no result. Could it be the mobo?
  8. I've seen it where reseating a CPU will alleviate that sort of an issue, so you can give that a try, though that was back when I was building servers. Still something to give a shot.
