  1. Hello everyone.A few months ago i bought a bundle of parts in a special package from TigerDirect. I put the computer together and it boots fine. All lights turn on and fans are spinning, but no display comes up. I can't even get to a boot menu. All the parts are new so i doubt this is a problemof faulty equipment. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

    Whats the PC's Specs?
    Check to see if the video card is getting power
    Make sure your GPU is compatible with MOBO
    Make sure everything is properly fitted.
    Have you tried with a different monitor? or diffirent connections? like DVI if your using HDMI or vice versa

    The onboard video doesn't work either? Hmmm that's strange.

    Well if the onboard video or your card isn't the problem, im thinking its your monitor.

    Did you buy the monitor brand new as well?
