I've just built my first PC, however when i plugged it to the monitor (Acer G276HL) (via. VGA/D-Sub) and boot the PC up and the monitor, the monitor just displays No Signal.
My PC runs okay I think, the LED on the graphics card light up, the CPU fan spins. However the monitor does not register the PC. It displays the monitors logo, energystar logo, and then goes black, finally saying No Signal.
I have yet to add the OS. I don't know what to do.
P.s. I'm not sure if i have to plug my graphics card, via DVI or HDMI, into the monitor..
OK, so you have two video outputs, correct? ONe on board, and one graphic card output, right?
Take the Graphics card out, and plug your monitor onto the onboard graphics, and load your OS. Then, after you have a stable platform, insert the graphics card, and make certain the drivers are correct and loaded.
Right now, what would you expect to see on the screen without an OS to boot to? There is nothing to display!
BTW, did you provision a partition for the drive? Did you mark the partition as active? Is the active partition set to your boot order in BIOS?
You could be dealing with more than a video issue!
