Hey guys,

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?

plug the monitor in the video card. in the BIOS make sure it points to the card or the setting is on auto. not on the on board.

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.
