Just built new computer but no display

Hey, I just built my first computer with all Brand new parts. It turns on all fans work fine, no strange noises, lights and buttons on front work. But i get no single at all to my monitor.
I tried dvi and hdmi, from graphics card and on board graphics also (thinking it might be monitor) i tried hdmi to my tv.. no luck.

Checked all connection they seem to be fine, nothing is shorting the mobo,
ram is in the right channels and it in propery i even tried with 1 stick and no diffence..

Amd phenom 2 965 x4
Ati radeon hd5450 2gb
gigabyte mobo ga-880gma-ud2h
corsair vengence 2x4gb 1600hz ram

  1. if the mb has a speeker connected to it see if it posting by pulling the ram or video card and you get a cmos beep code.
    a lot of people forget to plug in the extra 8 pin power connector to the mb.
  2. Mine has a 4 pin power connector and its plugged and I have done that with speaker and tested by removing ram it worked put ram in no beeps.. Whats the chances its my cpu and how would I be able to find out.. i dont have another to test with
  3. Back up a step and try this without the HD5450 installed.

    Attach the data cable to the MB port. With the PC off, power up the monitor. Do you get anything on the screen? Make sure the correct monitor input is selected on the monitor screen menu.

    Power up the PC. You should at least be seeing the option to go into the BIOS toconfigure the CPU and RAM and boot sequence etc..

    If not, try a different data cable to the monitor. Still nothing, try a different monitor.

    The goal is to at least get it working without the HD5450.

    When everything is working and drivers installed (except the HD5450) then you can worry about the video card.

    Then Change the bios to disable the MB video, install the video card and remember the power to it. Reboot and then install the drivers for the card
  4. Tried without graphics card didnt work tried d sub on monitor and hdmi on my tv nothig.. i made a mistake above i meant to say i tried the speaker and got no sound even without the ram..
  5. have you tried clearing the cmos to see if the mb might reset.on new mb and ps they have protection to keep pc from going boom. I would also look into power supply book and see if they extra fused the power supply or have a reset switch.
  6. Just did all that and still no luck.. and im not getting any beeps at all so what would that indicate
  7. i would try the mb outside the case on the table to see if something shorting it out. i would see if someone had another ps first to see if somthing on that gen power supply was bad.
