Hey guys i just bought a new computer from ibuypower.com... the specs are

Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6850 (2x 3.0GHz/4MB L2 Cache/1333FSB)
[SLI] MSI P7N SLI-FI Nvidia nForce 750i SLI Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, IEEE-1394, Three PCI-E MB

When i connect the power, monitor, mouse, etc... they recieve power but my monitor does not get a signal, The place is closed so I cant call up for the tech support, but Was wondering if you guys had any idea's what could be the cause of it, because i really want to this baby [just got it shipped in today] but its not working and it has me down...

Hello Rux0r,

The only thing I can think of is that the disk tower is not connected to the monitor. There should be at least one cable running between the back of the monitor and the back of the disk tower. This is separate from the power cables.

I would check all connections...and probably reseat the video card.

Something may have been slightly jarred loose during shipping, at least that would be my hope :thumbsup:.

Im not sure what you mean... the disk tower is not connected to the monitor?

But i called up the tech support which had me test the video cards, RAM, and he believes that it possibly the motherboard, so they are sending me a new one so i can fix it myself, and this way i can make sure everything is connected ideally... but im just hoping thats the case cuz i dont want to be sending it back and waiting forever [it seems like it]...

Well...I just went through a similar scenario...and it wasn't the motherboard.

My CPU had bent pins which were gumming up the works. Once that was straightened out (pun intended), my system worked fine.

I had power to everything, my fans spun up, but no signal reached any monitor I tried. After playing with for a couple of months at random times, I just took it to a local computer shop run by reliable, trustworthy friends.
