I just finished my build and was getting ready to start it. I plugged in the monitor and powered on my PC and suddenly the monitor flashed NO VGA INPUT and shut off. I am plugging the monitor into a Radeon HD 7950 with a DVI connection. I can guarantee that the entire PC is operational and its a monitor problem. I have triple checked every connection and there are no bent pins on the connector. I can see the Video Card working so thats not a n issue either. I am going to try some other connections but I just wanted to post this before I did. Please help as I'm so excited to start up my PC and want to as soon as possible. Please help a first time builder! The brand of monitor is an Asus VK278q
My Card has 1 DVI slot and my monitor has 1 DVI slot. I was double and triple checked that my card is firmly in place and can see it working when my computer is on. The Card works, the monitor is fully plugged in and turns on but gets no farther than that. The tower in itself works. I'm entirely out of ideas. On-board connection does nothing as well.
