Before getting into the problem, I want to tell you about my PC.
I built (with the help of some pros) this custom PC in September 2014. Never really had any issues with it till now. Or maybe for quite some time now. My PC specs -
AMD FX 6300
GIGABYTE GA 78LMT USB 3
ATI XFX RADEON HD 7770 2GB
2 X 4GB DDR3 RAM (cant remember exactly which brand)
And a Thunder 500W PSU (again, Cant remember exactly which one. Its something along those lines)

Problem - My PC powers on but doesn't boot. This problem may have been addressed before but please help me out. I did take a look at other threads. But none of the solutions actually helped. Okay. So the problem is basically that I turn on my PC (the usual way) do the usual powering the CPU on, turning on the monitor. It powers on. Also hear the "beep". All the lights work. Its basically functioning well. But the problem is on my monitor it says "NO HDMI CABLE CONNECTED" Solution may seem simple but it isn't. HDMI cable works totally fine. Tested it with another PC. Monitor is totally fine as well. In fact, when I use the VGA/D-SUB port instead of the HDMI things work perfectly fine and the monitor shows what it needs to show. I'm 100% sure theres no problems with the hardware. I heard its something to do with the BIOS. Anyways, these are the solutions I tried-

Reset the CMOS (by removing the CMOS battery and putting it back in)
Removed memory card sticks (RAM) and put it into different slots.
Also tried draining the power by long pressing the power button.
Have tried pretty much all the popular solutions.

Please suggest a solution that's not been tried by me.
I would of cared less about the PC. But the thing is I'm a YouTuber and this is my only Computer. Need my BAE to produce content. Please help. Like I said I will give a gift to the person that helps me solve this problem (A 10 USD iTunes card)
Thanks.

Hmm looking at that, I suggest you try using a different graphics card. Or reinstall the drivers if your graphics card. Sometimes these drivers are buggy and don't let the card function well. Also, go to bios menu and select the option of loading the last know boot profile. This might help^

My graphics card is fine. Recently got it replaced and tested. About the second method, can you please provide me with a step by step guide? My monitor won't show what it should show. So it's hard to get into the BIOS and choose stuff. Nonetheless, i'll give it a shot. Please provide me a step by step guide.
Thanks.

Seeing its a gigabyte motherboard, go to the last page of the BIOS. There would be an option to load a profile. Load the " <10" profile. Hope this fixes it.

Hey there! Thanks for getting back. I did manage to get into my bios. Here's what I see-https://imgur.com/GcpiJir

What I did next-
I hit F12 to load profiles. Here's what I saw-https://imgur.com/K92K60C

Couldn't change to a different profile. So I hit escape and clicked F11 this time to see what profiles are saved. Heres what I saw- https://imgur.com/Joyn96k

Couldn't find the <10 profile. Or am I doing it wrong? Isn't that the way to do it? Please give me directions.
Thanks! Appreciate it.

See the mention of "last know good" in the first pic ( when you clicked F12 )? Try doing that. That will reset the BIOS and will apply the settings of the time when your PC booted well. If this doesn't fix it, try connecting your monitor to the HDMI port of your motherboard, instead of your graphics card ~ reinstall the drivers ( if you haven't ). And did you connected your monitor into the HDMI port of ur g-card when you opened the BIOS? If you did, there is certainly a problem with the drivers. One more solution is that clean the connectors of the graphics card.

Aye first off, thanks for the continuous replies. Can you add me on Skype? My skype is deleted by moderator. We can communicate faster that way. Let me know if you send me a request. Anyways, before you replied I tried the "last know good" thing. When I choose that option and hit enter it only refreshes the page. Don't see any difference. BTW, like I said when I try using the HDMI it doesn't work. So I changed my monitor to the D sub mode to get into the bios. The other end of the HDMI was plugged into the graphics card though. But , like I said I used the D sub port to get into the BIOS. Also, tried connecting the other end of the HDMI to the motherboard. Doesn't work. Yesterday, when I got into the BIOS I chose the "load optimized defaults" option (idk if its called that. Something along those lines) and it worked. I could use HDMI. Worked twice. Tried booting again today and same problem :/ Lost it again. What's even worse is I cant boot even using the D sub port. In both HDMI and D SUB it says "no signal" . wanna reinstall drivers. BUT I CANT GET THE PC TO BOOT :(
My connectors are pretty clean, BTW. Don't think there's a problem there. Thanks a lot for the help, again..Hope you get back.
