Hello, I've just recently built a computer (1st time) and i've come across a problem. I seem to not be able to get a video signal. I'm using a toshiba 32' LCD tv as my monitor. I tried using an HDMI cable and a VGI to RGA cable, no luck. The computer seems to run just fine without a hitch. My build is:

CPU Intel i5-3470
GPU-660 Ti msi
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5
corsair bengeance 8 GB
ASRock H77 Pro4-M Micro ATX
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower
TX 650 corsair psu

I've tried reseating the RAM in ever which way, I also checked to see in the CPU was seated correctly, it was. Any advice would be a benefit.
Thanks for reading .

Well, i'm not sure what a VGI to RGA cable is, but i'm guessing it's something along the lines of a VGA to DVI cable? :) 

since it's your first build, it could possibly be a ram issue. are you sure you've got them down all the way? you have to be a little brutal sometimes, they don't just slide in.

have you tried a different monitor/TV to plug into?

No, uhh it is a VGA to the 3 tv cables (red, white and yellow)
I mean clicks in and i don't think I can stuff it in anymore. Also no I don't have another monitor to try =/

Clearly =)

SO besides a loose stick of RAM, are they any other common problems that I am missing.
It's not getting a video signal even with an HDMI cable
