1st bootup-- no display :(

I completed this build today: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/t8qC4n

When I try to boot, i get no display at all (black screen). I have swapped out monitors & HDMI cables, so it's not that. I saw a forum on Reddit where someone had an identical issue, resolved by removing the GPU before booting, but this did not work for me. Here's the weird thing:

Sometimes when I boot, the red "DRAM" debug LED is lit
Sometimes no debug LEDs are lit
but most of the time, the "VGA" LED is lit

No matter what/any LEDs, I never get a display.

Not sure where to go from here...

First try clear CMOS if that does not work do this. Your motherboard has Flash BIOS Button.Download the correct BIOS for the motherboard and CPU and flash the BIOS.

Clear CMOS using the battery method
Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer.
Disconnect the power cord from the AC power source.
Remove the computer cover.
Find the battery on the board.
Remove the battery:
Wait 1–5 minutes, then reconnect the battery.
Press power button to discharge
Put the computer cover back on.
Test

So you have pulled out the GPU completely and connect directly to the HDMI on the motherboard with the same result ?

Do the CPU fans startup and if so do they stay on ?

Thats correct, I took the GPU completely out & connected straight to the MoBo HDMI. The CPU fan comes on & stays on.

Double check and see if your 8 pin connection to the mother board is fully seated.
Also, if you have your daily driver PC is around, install the GPU in that unit to see if it posts.

^ The first thing is connect cable to a GPU output, DVI if you have one. Make sure bios set to use PCIE graphics and not onboard.
If you only have HDMI make sure you power monitor down and use a different port. Do these along with clearing cmos and see what happens.
