Hi,

This is the first time I've ever attempted to build a computer. Here's what I got:

ASUS P7P55D-E LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black ATX-612WEB 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case
Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I5750
Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BA1067
ASUS ENGTX465/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active ...
Hanns·G HZ201HPB Black 20" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor

I think I have everything installed and hooked up correctly, I just need to work on cable management, which I wanted to do after making sure everything is working first. I hooked the computer up to my monitor and turned it on, but my monitor is staying in standby and not recognizing any signals from the computer. The monitor works via VGA to my other computer. I don't know what's up... the video card is hooked up to the power supply directly using a PCI express cable. It seems everything else is up and running (2 LEDs on the motherboard lit up, the LEDs on my case lit up, and all the fans are running, including the one in the video card) but I have no idea what to do.

Can anyone offer any help or suggestions? Thanks

Oh yeah, and I tried hooking it up using both VGA and HDMI using a DVI converter for both that came with the video card that I used to hook up to the actual card...the card itself only has DVI ports)

Its hard to see, are all your power cables including the CPU power plugged in? also do you have another computer to test that adaptor out on, and is it the adaptor that came with the video card? I have had problems using those DVI-D to VGA adaptors-especially if I take a old one and try to get it to work on a newer card.

haha u answered my question before I got it-so did you check the CPU power is plugged in correctly, and I notice that CPU requires BIOS 0304 to work properly-what version of the BIOS is installed, do you know?

The adapters came with the video card. It seems that the CPU is in correctly, the red "CPU_LED" lights up when I turn the computer on. I'm not sure what BIOS is installed, but I bought all this stuff new from Newegg

how old is the monitor in question? Also, that motherboard comes with Post state LEDs, there should be an LED light on the motherboard itself next to each component, the component that is experiencing problems will have a light lit next to it. (If im reading the correct manual, there are several ASUS boards with that socket and chipset on newegg and you didnt specify which particular variant this one was)

The monitor is brand new, I bought it along with everything else. Only 2 LEDs light up on my motherboard...the "BOOT_DEVICE_LED" is lit up when every the power switch in the back is flipped on, and the "CPU_LED" is lit up when the computer is actually on.

This is the motherboard I bought: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131620
Manual: http://www.iusermanual.com/motherboard/asus-p7p55d-e-motherboard-manual.htm

Video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121383

Ok, ya, thats the motherboard I was looking at, anyway, when CPU LED, do you mean the LED on the actual motherboard, by the CPU, or the one attached to the case? I it is the one on the motherboard, it means there is a problem with the CPU, either it is defective, the socket is defective, or there is a incompatibility, probably due to improper BIOS. I would try resetting the BIOS, but I doubt that will work-if the problem is the wrong BIOS, the only way I know to fix it is to flash the BIOS, and to do that you need it to boot first.
