I assume you have not loaded an opeating system yet.

Remove the graphics card, re-seat it fully and try again.

Try another monitor (borrowed or whatever) to rule out a monitor fault.

If you have already loaded an operating system, you may be driving the monitor in a mode it doesn't support. Start the computer in Safe Mode and check you graphics settings.

I'm sorry but I don't fully understand what you're saying. You said you don't see anything on the monitor, but then you talked about colours.

Are you getting some sort of coloured pattern ? From a fault-finding point of view, this is quite different from a blank screen.
