Hi. I have a problem with my new PC, it's in the sig. I built it in Slovakia, it worked perfectly. I was using it on a HD TV with a recommended resolution of 1366x768. I shipped it to Ireland where I live and when I plug in everything and turn on the PC the screen just enters into Power Saving Mode. Can the resolution that I set before cause this kind of issues?

Things I tried:
On my 24" LG monitor I tried a DVI connector and HDMI, non worked.
On our LCD TV I tried HDMI and still didn't work.

Additional Info:
When I opened up the PC and looked into it I immidetly spotted a bad sign. My CPU Heatsink was a bit bent downwards. Could this have damaged some of my components? I used cable tight to level out the heatsink, turned the PC on to see if the screen would work but the same problem arises. It always enters Power Saving mode. Also im using the LG screen right now with my old PC so its working fine.

My father is saying that probably my LG monitor is not compatible with the resolution that I set in Slovakia so i should get an older screen and try it out. But I threw out my old screen a couple of months ago and I asked my friends but they don't have one either. Any thoughts?

Solution:
Just switched my GPU to a different PCIe slot and it works.
