I recently built myself a new computer, but there's no signal to the monitor. The RAM works, the video card works, the motherboard has been switched, the CPU has been tested, I found another thread like this and I tired the suggestions there, disconnected the f panel connectors, dismounted the motherboard and laid it onto the static free bag. nothing seems to work. Also, I wasn't sure, but do you have to install the OS and the drivers for the video card first before you can get visual through the video card? because the new mobo that I switched to has an inverted d-sub to normal, it has the male part instead, and I don't have a cable for that. here are the main components: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 Socket 775 (2.66GHz) FSB1333 6MB Cache Crucial 2GB kit (2x1GB) DDR2 667MHz/PC2-5300 Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL5 ASUS P5LD2-X/1333 i945GC Socket 775 6 channel audio ATX Motherboard Asus 7600GS 512MB DDR2 DVI VGA TVO PCI-E Graphics Card anyone have any ideas please? EDIT: oh yea, and I've tested the monitor, it works fine.
