Newly built PC, cannot get monitor to connect

  1. Hope someone might be able to help figure out what I have going on. Newly built PC, my first attempt at building one. When I went to boot it up for the first time cannot get the monitor to connect to the PC. I know I should have bench tested everything prior but did not, so a mistake on my part. I have disconnected the video card, the wireless card, and got it down to only having 1 stick of RAM, monitor, and keyboard hooked up but still cannot get it to connect.

    Since I cannot get the monitor to connect cannot get to BIOS or do anything, so have no operating system installed?

    Hoping motherboard is not bad but not sure what else it might be? any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Can you get to the BIOS? Make sure the RAM is in the right slot, check the manual.

    "I know I should have bench tested everything prior but did not"...

    So did you finally do this? Do you have on-board video to try? What are the complete specs?
