Okay so this is my very first build. And up until I started building (june) I've done my research and studying. So I'm confident that I've done everything correctly.

Any who, I finished putting together my PC in July and since then I've had this problem where my monitor will not receive any signal from my computer.

My specs are as follows:

MSI 890gxm-g65 gaming mobo

Amd phenom II x4 955 BE @ 3.2 ghz

8gb (2x4gb sticks) Crucial Ballistix sports ram 1333 mhz 240 pin Dimm

MSI HD6670 1gb DDR5

Ultra LSP 750 watt atx psu

Cooler Master Hyper 212+ Cpu cooler with HS and fan

WD Black 1TB Desktop Hard Drive

I've tried almost everything...from booting with 1 stick of ram, trying with onboard and gpu, Breadboarding , etc....same result :( . If it helps, the 4 power phase LEDs are on so does that mean my CPU is working? Also, everything is seated firmly and still same result...I get no beeps so does this mean my CPU is dead regardless of the power phase LEDs? (I've tried this with 2 different Mobos)

Make sure the 24 pin and 8/4 pin connecter is connected onto the motherboard.

24 pin and 4 pin power cables are indeed connected.

Have you tried swapping cables and maybe even the monitor if you have another available.

If VGA is one of your connector options, I would recommend trying that. It seems to work without any special drivers and should allow you to load whatever drivers may be needed to recognize your 6670.

If you want to test the on-board video, make sure you do so with the aftermarket GPU removed.

Monitor works well on my other PC (the one I'm using now) and I'm also using the same cable so I doubt it's that. Plus, I've tried on board with aftermarket removed, same result. :(
