No Signal to Monitor

How it began:

 

Tried to install a 6gb HDD on a Windows 7 pro which only sees 1.5gb.  Searched online and some recommend a newer driver as that is usually the issue.

Installed the newer driver and BIOS only sees 1 HDD and 1 SSD, it is missing 1 HDD as it is configured in RAID so Windows will not boot as it is missing the boot sector

 

I reset it a few times and went to BIOS to configure the settings to RAID.  BIOS sees 1 HDD and 1 SSD, still missing 1 HDD and attempts to load windows.  It fails obviously because the other information is on the other HDD which it fails to see.

 

I then physically push the rest button and now it shows no signal, can't even get to BIOS.

This is a PC that was running ok till I tried out the HDD drivers.

 

 

Troubleshooting Steps:

Took out memory to ensure Mob is not bad, turns out ok.

Tested out different monitor cables and monitor, 

Tried the 1 min power button trick

Tried the pull battery trick

 

 

 

 

Specs:

Mob: p8z77

Pwr: 1200w

Gfx: GTX 680

:welcome:   noSignal4me,

 

Will come back to your initial problem in due course and for now only look at your "no signal" issue.

 

Was all power isolated from the computer, did you get rid of any residual charge in the system by pressing the power on button and did you ground yourself before touching any of your hardware.

 

 

Troubleshooting Steps:
Took out memory to ensure Mob is not bad, turns out ok.
Tested out different monitor cables and monitor, 
Tried the 1 min power button trick
Tried the pull battery trick

 

 
 
What happened when you removed the RAM that told you that the MB is ok.
 
Testing the video cable and another monitor was a good call, in addition to this can I suggest that you physically remove the GTX 680 from the MB and try using the MBs integrated video port then get back to us.
