Let's start out with specs
MSI Z77A-G45
GTX 560 SE

As you can tell my problem is the machine won't post. It was working fine last night and today it doesn't want to post. It turns on for 5 seconds and then shuts off. All of the fans spin and the leds light up like they should. The speeker won't beep so I can't tell what kind of error there is. It has only been together for about 2 months and I haven't had any problems with it besides this one.

I tried with one stick in all of the slots and I pushed the clear cmos button on the back of the motherboard for 15 seconds and still nothing. Like I said its only about 2 months old and was working on Monday night.

check if the power cable are in correctly and by looking on msi found that this board got 3 pci-e slot did you all of then with the graphic card also this board use intel cpu and got dvi and vga connector on the back since this cpu got a hd 4000 graphic chipset i would try to cennect to that by removing the gtx 560

Tried without the graphics card and nothing still. If you didn't know already, the monitor shows no sign of signal coming from the computer (the led on the monitor would change from orange to green). Also, its a really old monitor I got in 2006 so it only has only a vga in but I booted with the vga and it worked fine before.

do you have another cable for test between the monitor and the graphic card,it could be the monitor itself do you have something else for testing the video output like a tv or another monitor
