So I built my new PC today and everything went fine except when I boot up the bios for the first time. My monitor looked all green and had green lines and specs and was going crazy. I could still see other colors and the actual bios but it was distorted and mostly green. I checked and removed the graphics card and ran it through the DVI port in my motherboard. Still same results. I don't know what to do. The board is an MSI PC mate z97 atx board and my video card is a EVGA GTX 970 SSC. Everything is brand new. Please help me!

I had just bought the DVI cable. The monitor doesn't have an HDMI, only a DVI and VGA port. From what I could tell the PC was running fine. All the fans were fucntioning and even though the screen was green, i looked at the bios and everything showed up. I have no idea what it could be. It was working fine and I had bought the monitor off of someone that worked for a news company on offer up but when I turn on the monitor without anything plugged into it. The start up menu looks fine and everything checks out.

Is almost looks like its either a corrupt connection such as a bad cable or plug in or a faulty motherboard.

That screenshot shows the green lines during POST, before the drivers are loaded.

That would have been something that should have been included in your first post.

 

What is the operating system being used?

 

Do you have the operating system installed on the HDD?

 

The error being seen on the screen indicates that it is either not seeing the hdd and/or the operating system, or the MBR has a problem.

I get the impression its a new build, and the hard drive is blank which would give that error

This is why I inquired about what operating system was being used, of if one had even been installed.

@dc3
The OS or lack thereof is irrelevant as this is happening before boot (judging by his/her picture) as this would happen before the OS could be loaded implying that it is an issue with something else. Cable, Monitor, and GPU/motherboard should all be checked. There might be OS issues too, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

So I took the PC to geek squad and they plugged it in to one of their monitors. It seems that the PC its self is fine. There were no errors with the boot up and no green lines so it's down to it either being the monitor or DVI cable. Thankyou :)

Was kind of my suspicion all along. Glad you got it figured out. I'd start with a new cable, its cheaper.
