I have just built a new computer with a Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 motherboard. There is no monitor connection on the back. I have a Sapphire Radeon X700 graphics card but when i connect my monitor to this i get no output to the screen. Any ideas how to sort this?
when you say there is no connector on the back for the monitor have you plugged the the kettle type lead into the back of the monitor and then to the mains or just plugged the monitor lead into the videocard slot. as the monitor might need power from the mains if its not connected to the computer via the mains output socket on the back of the computer
No post bios beep does not necessarily mean that the pc is dead - the internal speaker may not be connected. IF the pc were dead then would the drive spin etc? Does the hard drive light flash for a while as this would indicate that the pc was booting even if you could see nothing on the screen. Can you try the monitor on a different PC or maybe a different monitor with your pc just to eliminate monitor problems? I doubt it will be lack of driver as the pc would use a basic driver by default.
