Hello everyone, I recently assembled my own computer and need your help. When i plugged in the VGA cord to my computer, the screen is blank and the power led indicator on the monitor just flashes slowly. I have verified that all the cables are plugged in correctly and everything is nicely seated in my motherboard.

What should i do??

Specs:
CPU: Intel core i5 3570k
Motherboard: Asus p8z77-v lk
Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce gtx 560 ti
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB black
Storage: Toshiba 1TB Hard Drive
PSU: Ultra LSP 650 watt ATX power supply
Optical Drive: Liteon 24x Internal DVD/CD Writer
Keyboard and mice: Logitech Wireless combo
Case: Corsair CC-9011014-WW Carbide Series 300R

Have you attempted to use the video built onto the motherboard? If that works you will need to enter the BIOS and tell it which video is the primary. It should give you the option of PCI-E which would be your add in video card.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

I remember when i first turned the computer on, the monitor was working fine... Showed some text and said some errors like CPU Fan error and Keyboard not detected.

So, i went and got my mouse and keyboard and connected it in, the screen said: press del for setup and insert bootable media. My keyboard wasn't working so i opened up my case and i didn't have usb 2.0 installed. I moved the cables to the bottom and out of the way because they were taking up too much space with no success. I remember i reseated some stuff because i tried to move the cables. But, i checked and made sure all the cables were plugged in and the graphics card and everything.

Now I am confused. Does the monitor show the BIOS when booting or does it stay blank all of the time???? The USB ports on the back will function as is without need for intervention but the keyboard should be hooked up before turning on the power.

It's blank all the time. The monitor was working before, but now it's not working. The screen is just black

If you have another system, such as a laptop or another desktop, plug that in to the monitor just to rule out the possibility of it being a problem with the monitor. Also, does your computer boot loop or does it just remain on?

Checking the monitor is a good idea. If it is shown as working I would still hook it up to the motherboards video. If that responds then you will need to go into the bios to set the video to the pci-e as the first video.
