My newly built pc won’t give a signal on the monitor

  1. I have built a pc today and everything is fine and running but when I plug it into a monitor it just won’t give any signal.
    The fans are all working, there are no beeps or anything, I am pretty sure the display port cable is working, and the monitor is also working.

    the specs:
    Motherboard: msi b450 ac carbon
    Ram: 16 gbs 3200 mhz
    Graphics card: asus nvidia rtx 2060 oc edition
    Processor: and Ryzen 7 2700
    Power supply: 700 watts

    If anyone can help me it would be really appreciated. Thanks

    ps: the remote control for the case fans is not working either, I tried changing the battery with a new one but it still won’t work

    Reset the CMOS. And if you can.. try a video card that you know works - if that doesn't work, if you have some compatible ram that you know works, stick with the verified working video card, try the good module alone, slot by slot.. if that doesn't work, verify the condition of the CPU pins.. if everything is good there, probably the board. (Also I'm guessing that it does, but you could check if it's an early version of the board that doesn't support zen+ (default BIOS), not sure if that has been an issue or not..)

    Also could try HDMI connection.. or any other connection from the card..

    Have you tried changing the settings on the monitor to the correct input? Simple things before resetting cmos.
