Ok, this is my first full build of a PC, I have a basic idea of what I'm doing but not much more. I put the whole thing together, plugged it in and hit the power, the lights and fans turned on but the screen, which I'm using a HDTV with a "PC in", tells me there's no signal to the screen check connections. I reseated the VGA and the RAM and checked every wire, but i cant find the problem. I know the system turns on and the components work for the most part, the CD drive ejects if I push the button and such. So I'm thinking that I need an actual computer monitor but I'm not sure. Am I dumb or really dum?

For testing purposes I would suggest a regular monitor for the time being.

My question is does the mobo have an on board graphics card. Did you build the machine with an add-on graphics card?

Ok. Then I am thinking you are going to need a monitor temporarily to get into Windows to load all the needed drivers. In particular the one for the add-on card.
