I am in the process of building my first Pc. When I turn it on fully assembled I get the single POST beep. However, i get no response from the monitor.
I went through the breadboard steps and everything seems to be working fine. When i remove the graphics card I am able to enter the bios. With the graphcs card removed I am in the process of installing windows now.
The monitor has either a blue tipped cable or a hdmi cable for connections.
So the questions are:
1: Is the reason that I am having trouble with the screen because I have the monitor plugged into the mobo instead of the graphics card?
2: is my graphics card not working correctly?
3: Do i need to by an adapter so that i can plug the blue tipped monitor cable into the white tipped graphics card socket?

swiftly_Morgan is correct. When you plug in a dedicated GPU it takes priority and overrides the motherboard video. however I see you confusion since none of your monitor plugs fit the card. In the box with the GPU there should be a DVI to VGA (white to blue) adapter and a mini HDMI to HDMI adapter. They are probably under the cardboard the GPU was sitting on in the box. You'll probably want to use the HDMI as its digital.
