Hello everyone! This is my first time posting although I have been a regular to this website when in need of advice. I built my very first computer last night and everything seemed to work just fine. I was to the point where I was installing programs onto it. I got tired and went to sleep. I woke up to find that the computer was on, but it didn't have a display on the monitor. I kept trying to find a source on the monitor, but it just wouldn't. Everything in the case seems to be working just fine, all fans are spinning. Does anyone have any idea what is happening? As my first build, I'm a bit worried something has gone awry. :(  Anything would be appreciated. Thank you.

Have you tried rebooting and go to the BIOS?

I have tried rebooting but all that happens is a black screen on the monitor and the keyboard is unresponsive.

Well something maybe has happened through your sleep, are you sure everything is fine? Try another GPU?

I believe everything to be fine at least. I don't happen to have another GPU on hand. :\

It sounds like an issue with our power supply. Are you sure all power connectors are in. one might has slipped out.

How about your friends one? And can you thoroughly check everything that nothing has been changed?

By my experience it is most likely blown video card. but anyway try if it PC beeps, hope you have motherboard speaker connected. If not pull memories and video card out and try it anyway. Then put only one memory stick and video card back in and try. You may also try to use different DVI or HDMI port. See what happens...sometimes it could just be bad alignment...

good luck.

The computer turns on, but nothing really boots. A friend and I tried my GPU and ram on another motherboard and they worked fine. We tried some spare parts he had on mine and we got the same results I kept getting. I can't turn the system off via the power switch either. Sorry it took me so long to reply. Also, I never heard any beeps. I don't think my motherboard has an onboard speaker though.
