Hey guys, I just built my computer and it is not displaying anything on my monitor when I start it. My graphics card is a Radeon HD 6850 and my motherboard is an ASUS M5A97. My CPU is an AMD Phenom II X4965 (I'm listing this in case of any compatibility issues). I know it's not my monitor as there is no display on other monitors I have tried however I am currently using a VGA cable with a DVI converter (as my computer only takes DVI and hdmi and my monitor only takes VGA and hdmi) and the hdmi doesn't seem to work either.

Any advice on the issue would be appreciated. Thanks :)

Can you tell whether the system is booting? Any beep codes that may indicate an error?

No beep codes as far as I can tell. It just seems as though everything in the computer is running but nothing's happening on the monitor.

Might be worth borrowing a DVI capable monitor and cable from a friend, just to test.

I've taken mine to a shop and they've tried new cables, new graphics card and new RAM but so far nothing. They're currently rebuilding it to find out the problem, I'm hoping it's not the motherbaord :S

wow, that shop sounds useless, it shouldnt be that hard to fix this. You dont just randomly swap parts. Any computer repair shop should have everything they need to test parts and fix this in about 30 mins.
