I built my PC but it says "no signal"

  Fluttercuddle 01:50 28 Jan 2017

I just built my new PC but everytime I turn it on it says "no nignal". I've tried everything. Using 1 ram stick on every position. Taking out all of the wires and plugging them back in. Plugging the vga chord into my other monitor. Used an hdmi chord. I don't know what else I can do. This is my PC build: click here

I don't know if you've built a pc before but you often find if you price up the items you're going to use it cheaper to buy ready built.As for the signal problem i'll leave it to those on here who are more qualified than i to resolve it.

There is the main 24 pin power connector and there is a smaller 8 pin connector beside the rear outputs. What have you plugged in here? On my board I have a 4 pin connector going to this. All 8 are only needed for high end graphics cards.

Also is the graphics card seated properly?

What happens when you press the power button?

I plugged in all the wires correctly and my graphics card is in and after I press the power button nothing happens to the monitor

What about fans , led's and hard drives?

If nothing is happening it may be as simple as the power switch on the wrong pins on the front panel connections, does the reset button do anything?

Are there any beeps from the PC?

Have you connected the power cable to the 6 pin socket on the graphics card? There should be dedicated output sockets for GPUs on the power supply.

Yeah I connected the vga cable and the 6 pin into the video card and plugged it into the pcie slot ( tried both too)

What actually happens when you turn it on? Do fans spin up? Do LEDs illuminate? What else happens?

We know that the Monitor says "No Signal"

Nothing happens to the monitor when I turn it on. When I remove the vga chord from the video card, it recognizes that there's no signal which tells me that it notices it when I plugged it in. Yes all fans and led lights are working too.

You may have a faulty graphics card. Since there is no onboard graphics on your motherboard you will need to get another graphics card to try.

That could be the problem but I don't have an extra video card to prove that and plus the one that I bought is pretty expensive too
