Computer not connecting to Monitor [Solved/Closed]

 Kain -
I tried to build a computer from scratch and I could not connect it to my monitor, the cables work and the monitor work. Even after replacing the motherboard and the graphics card, it will not connect. I have a Corsair HX650 Power supply, a MSI 970A-G43 Motherboard, a AMD FX 8350 4.0 GHz CPU, a MSI GT 740 Graphics card, 4 GB GDDR3 RAM, A 1TB WD Purple and a 80GB Seagate (for operating system) Hard drives. These are the current specs, oh and the WD hard drive seems to rev up and then slow then repeat constantly

I suggest you dis-connect the hard drives to see if you can get into the BIOS. You might also remove the memory to see if you get 3 beeps from the BIOS when it can't find any memory.

If the motherboard has build-in graphics you can remove the card and try the MB video output.

Then you need to confirm that the CPU is compatible with the MB.

It could be that the CPU is fried. Since it is the common element.

Good Luck
I think I found it, the cpu had some bent pins
