Hi guys!

 

I really need help. My monitor won't display anything but my CPU is working. This has happened before already but it has gotten worse. What I mean is that before when this would happen, I would simply wait for about 20-45 minutes and then my display would work. However, right now my display would flat out stop, even if I wait for 6 hours. This happened 2 days ago when I got the "Critical Structure Corruption" while I was watching a movie, then my PC restarted. But when it restarted, my display stopped working, even if I waited for a couple hours. 

 

I Ruled out the following:

 

I don't think its my monitor because my monitor has the yellow light indicating that its being powered up. 

 

I took out the CMOS, waited 5 minutes, and then put it back on. Still no display. 

 

I reseated my video card, hard drives, ram, turned it back on, still no display. 

 

I plugged my monitor to my motherboard directly instead of my video card, still no display.

 

I really need help guys!! 

 

PS: I custom built this gaming PC and I have upgraded to a water cooler a long time ago. 

 

Here is my build:

Pull the video card and connect directly to the MOBO video.  If not starting then the power supply is suspect.

I have used google; thats where I got the idea of taking out the CMOS, reseating hardware etc. I'm posting here in hopes that I would be able to get useful information that i couldn't find from my google search.

I don't think its the power supply because like I said my PC is booting up and it is powering up my monitor. My monitor simply can't get a signal from my PC. I have already tried just plugging in my monitor to my MOBO, and it still wouldn't display anything; my video card was still hooked in on my MOBO though.
