Hey guys, I have just built a new system. It is all powered and the motherboard seems to have power as there are lights lit up. I have plugged my monitor into the motherboard VGA port and turned the computer on. For some reason nothing is being displayed on the monitor and it is going on Power Saving Mode which seem to me like it's getting no input.

Yep - lets start with the system specs, and what you have already attempted.

 

First step for me, when something like this goes wrong, is to take everything out of the case and test the core hardware. Sit the motherboard on the box it came in, keep one stick of ram installed, the CPU and cooler, power supply, monitor,  and keyboard. Connect nothing else. Then start it and see what happens.

Thanks for the replies, I had not connected the CPU Power, I assumed it was powered from the large connector that I connected to the motherboard. Turns out there was another connector near the CPU with 4/6 pins which I had to power. 

 

First build so mistakes will be made, it all works perfect now, thanks!
