Hi, just finished building a computer as follows and i keep getting a no signal error on the monitor. i've checked the graphics card is in properly and i have tried connecting a different monitor, and that still produced no signal.i've tried connecting the monitor using both the dvi adaptor that came with the graphics card and the normal analogue cable, still no signal.

One thing you might check: Is there an onboard video option on the motherboard? If so, make sure that it is disabled (via the BIOS) then try your video card again. Also, if you happen to have an old video card (that you know works) that you can use, (or borrow from a friend for a few minutes) you should try to put that one instead just to see if it works. If it does, then the problem lies with the new video card you have.
