Everything is put together, but no input from my monitor.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just got my PC together and I can't seem to get my monitor to recognize it through display port or HDMI. I have a Maximus VI Hero, with an i7 4770k and an EVGA GTX 780.

Make sure the input on the monitor is set to the correct one.

I don't know your monitor, but if the monitor's resolution is above 1200p, you need a DVI-D and HDMI 1.4a cable, not DVI-I, or HDMI 1.3 or below.

I have an Asus VG248QE, it's 1080p and it's set to HDMI which is hooked up to the motherboard.

If you have a GTX 780, why are you hooking it to the motherboard? It needs to be hooked to the graphics card.

Well this is my first build so I have no idea. Lol I've tried DVI from the 780 to the monitor, HDMI from the 780 and the motherboard to the monitor(seperately), and I've tried display port from the 780 to the monitor. I have no idea what else it could be.

Are you looking at the GPU and making sure it's actually turning on when you turn the machine on?

For whatever reason I left it on to see what would happen and it immediately went to the BIOS. I feel REALLY dumb now. Lol Thanks for helping. thumb.gif
