Hello all. I'm building my first computer and when I turned it on for the first time, I got nothing on the screen. The hardware is as follows:

MB: Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R
Video: NVidia 8800 GTS
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400
RAM: 2GB DDR3 1333
PSU: 500W 20/24-pin Power Supply

When I turn the computer on, all of the lights turn on, the fans start spinning, the HDD is spinning(according to my Chassis read-out). Nothing appears on the screen though. I have tried the video card and processor both in different computers and they both work. I even sent the motherboard back to have it tested and they siad it worked fine. I have reseated the RAM multiple times and have tried using one in each slot, and then switched to the other one. I have no idea what else to check.

Suggestions would be great.

Yes, the monitor works with other systems.

Do you know if the monitor you're using is working on another system?

Hi there,

Do you have some different RAM sticks to test? The ones you have currently may be faulty.

Cheers
