how are you using HDMI from the board and graphics? if you have a discrete graphics card, then motherboard video outs will be disabled, only use the HDMI on the graphics

No I get nothin coming from a monitor aswell.and my mobo has a hdmi and my graphics card has one so I tried both of them and I still get no signal from my t.v

what graphics card are you running?
December 31, 2012 2:24:55 AM

nice card, do you realise that this card requires power other than what comes from the PCI-E slot, i do believe it requires two six pin connectors, make sure these are properly connected and then try again

Agreed with Lord Tumna

Also make sure your drivers are installed correctly and are the latest ones as sometimes there wont be HDMI support if you install them incorrectly or not at all.

they seem connected, do you have any memory inserted?
December 31, 2012 2:38:57 AM

also, what powersupply are you using?
December 31, 2012 2:50:37 AM

do you have any RAM?
never seen that power supply before... however 520W should be plenty
December 31, 2012 2:51:25 AM

also, what is your CPU?
December 31, 2012 2:58:12 AM

Sorry that's my cpu
December 31, 2012 3:21:04 AM

is the RAM correctly positioned as per the motherboards instructions?
December 31, 2012 3:35:55 AM

Yes I believe so

Just to clarify, the pc does turn on and all of the fans are running properly as well as the components, youre just getting no signal on your monitor/televison?

If so, since you are using a television, make sure you have the tv switched to the proper input. Since youre using an HDMI, make sure that your tv is switched to the correct HDMI input (i.e. you plug the HDMI from the pc to HDMI 2 on tv, turn the tv input to HDMI 2). They need to match. If the tv isnt switched to the correct input, you wont get any signal at all unless something else is plugged into that input.

Yes sir all fans are running and the input is correct in my television
December 31, 2012 4:51:23 AM

try using another output, such as one of the display ports or the DVI's
you may have a bad card/HDMI cable
December 31, 2012 4:52:37 AM

when you tried the monitor, was it on the correct input as well? The tv may not be usable as a monitor
December 31, 2012 5:00:37 AM

hm i dont believe it has different inputs on there,i unplugged it from my desktop and i grabed my laptop plugged it in and i got picture on it right away......
December 31, 2012 4:22:38 PM

Do you guys know if I can switch my ram to a different slot and try that
December 31, 2012 4:25:51 PM

hello... yes try that...
December 31, 2012 4:32:24 PM

What motherboard do you have? Is it the one that is shown with the CPU combo link that you gave earlier?
December 31, 2012 4:34:05 PM

Yes sir it is
December 31, 2012 4:36:01 PM

Ok. Take the graphics card out and plug the HDMI cable into the motherboard and see if you get anything. The integrated graphics should auto select itself.
December 31, 2012 4:37:03 PM

Ok ima try that right now
December 31, 2012 4:45:22 PM

Sweet jesus it worked!!!!!!! Now it says insert boot media in selected boot device and press a I put my windows 7 cd in there now?
December 31, 2012 4:51:31 PM

Sure, you can continue if you want to install Windows. Just change the 1st boot device in the BIOS to your CD\DVD drive and windows should start the setup. However, this doesn't solve the GPU issue. Give me a second and lets see if we can get that GPU up and running.
December 31, 2012 4:58:20 PM

Ok. Reset the computer and go into the BIOS again. Under System Agent Configuration, go to Graphics Configuration and change the Primary Display option to PEG. Save and Exit. After it starts to boot or you get back to that boot device screen, turn the PC off. Insert your GPU and plug the HDMI cable back in to the GPU. Reboot and see if you get a picture. Also try both PCIe slots on the motherboard.
December 31, 2012 5:01:12 PM

Wait how do I get into the bios do spam delete on the keyboard?
December 31, 2012 5:02:21 PM

Yep. Start hitting the delete key when you power on the system. It should say something like "entering UEFI BIOS or entering setup."
December 31, 2012 5:03:48 PM

Ok I'm booting it up right now
December 31, 2012 5:06:53 PM

Ok I'm in the bios ez mode now
December 31, 2012 5:14:21 PM

Ok. Follow the instructions I gave to change the Primary Display and the primary boot device to CD\DVD to boot Windows cd
December 31, 2012 5:19:50 PM

I dont see a system agent configuration in here
December 31, 2012 5:22:46 PM

Go into Advanced mode at the bottom of the screen
December 31, 2012 5:23:53 PM

Ok I'm in advance mode
December 31, 2012 5:26:54 PM

Then go over to advanced, then down to System Agent Configuration and follow my instructions to set Primary Display to PEG
December 31, 2012 5:31:33 PM

December 31, 2012 5:33:25 PM do I put the graphics card back in
