Yes you should. The most over look mistake is not seating the compontants. Try removing all cards, and memory and then reinstalling them. Sometimes you can have it screwwed down or pushed in and there is just enough slack to not make the connection. Ok yeah unplug the computer first. :thumbsup:

Have you tried plugging the monitor into another computer? Have you tried plugging another monitor into the computer? You could have a bad video card, or a bad monitor. Check the connector on your monitor cable. Sometimes the pins are bend when trying to plug in.

re your other posts:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34145/possible-motherboard-problem/
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34086/hey-im-having-some-major-issues/

Are these all about the same system? If so have any problems been positively identified and overcome?

I think it's better to stick with just one topic, that way people know what you've already tried.

I just wanted to say that I am sure your problem is not Monitor related. As long as you have connected it up fine to the video port (the right one wheither its onboard video or a vidoe card), and there is power to the monitor you should have no problem.

Its more likely to be your computer that has a problem, Haven't connected the power cable from powersupply to the motherboard. Or the power switch to the motherboard. RAM or CPU related. Whatever it is it is not the Monitor I'm sure, from those symtoms.

31337 is a prime number .... 1337 is not .... go figure!

When you say your computer is up and runnng, how do you know this? Are there lights on, on the motherboard, or do the drive lights flash on and off?
I'm not trying to be short but you have given little overall information. Could you, in detail, describe exactly what your computer does when it boots?

All the lights are on and there is a boot beep and the fans and harddrive are spining but the screen is just blank. It doesn't let me load any programs or anything
