Just built a computer, no signal to the monitor

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just put together a computer for a relative with some of my old parts. The system turns on and everything seems to be working fine except I can't get the computer to send a signal to the monitor. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is.

The system specs are:
ASUS P5Q Deluxe
Intel C2Q Q8400
PNY GT240GT 1GB
OCZ Reaper PC-6400 1GB x 4
WD Caviar Blue 500GB
Cooler Master Elite Power 400W

-Check if the monitor is properly connected to the Graphics Card.
-Check if the graphics card is properly connected to the motherboard.

And the First Time builders killer: Check for the 8-pin EPS connector (CPU power connector).

well if the gfx card doesnt require external power and its plugged in the monitor and powered on then it could probably be:

1. 4/8pin connector
2. 24pin connector
3. ram not in correct slots. eg) gigabyte boards have to fill up the slots on the right before the left could be used.

the first is what got me on my first build.

Try:
1 stick of RAM(Try different slots)

Is the graphics card correctly plugged in?
Is the CPU in correctly and not producing much heat?
Is the 8/4 pin plugged in?
Are all fans turning on?
Is the monitor connected to the video card correctly?

Check, check, and check. I'm totally slumped, I just tried the videocard on another rig and it works.

The GPU is properly plugged in.
Yes and nope I'm using an old Zalman 9700 on this badboy.
Yes.

I'm going to try the RAM stuff now. Thanks for the help! I'll check back in about five minutes.

There's no onboard GPU for the P5Q Deluxe. Just tried the one stick of RAM thing and it turns out one of the RAM sticks are faulty.
