So, after building it (my first build), I plugged it in to my monitor through the Graphics Card with A DVI cord, and turned it on. The system turned on, all 3 fans running (case fan, CPU fan, Graphics card fan), yet the monitor just went into power save mode. The monitor is set to the correct input, yet it shows nothing. I've tried everything I could think of, so I come running to you.

Thanks in advance I guess.

21, Clear CMOS Jumper. Check the jumper is on the correct pins, ref, MB/m/P#25. Jumper Default, on pins 1&2.
23 Front Panel case wiring, MB/mP#27. Check carefully plugs are correct.
24. If you have a Mini internal system speaker ensure that + & - on the plug and socket match, MB/mP#28.
