This Christmas, I assembled a computer and managed to get it to power on successfully. However, when I plug in my monitor, I get a VGA No Signal message, and afterwards, my monitor goes to sleep mode with the orange light. I tried switching the mode to DVI, but the same thing happened with a "DVI No Signal" Message.
I've made sure that the VGA and DVI cables are in properly on both ends, and that the screws are tightened. Also, I have a GTX 660 video card, and I'm not sure if anything is supposed to plug into that as far as the monitor goes. Any help?
Here's some relevant build components:
Power supply: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
GPU: EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Monitor: ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers

Note: I just tried hooking the monitor up by VGA to my laptop, and it worked perfectly.
If you have a video card then you're supposed to plug in the cable from the monitor to the card, not the motherboard output.
