Hello guys! So today I finished a my first build and after hours of work, everything appears to be in working order. However, I plug in my DVI-D cable into my monitor and graphics card, the monitor when turned on flashes VGA, HDMI, and DVI (I believe checking to see which is being used) and then it flashes "No signal" before going into stand-by mode. Ive tried using HDMI instead of DVI-D in order to see if that changed anything but no luck. My video card only has DVI-D and HDMI ports. Ive made sure that the video card is seated correctly and there doesnt appear to be any cable not plugged within the tower. Im thinking that either there is a compatibility issue (ive tried plugging the monitor into an older monitor and it showed no signal as well) or perhaps unfortunately one of the parts is bad even though they all appear to be in working condition.


My specs are:


Intel Core i5-6600k


Asus Z170 Pro Gaming Atx LGA1151


G.Skill Ripjaws V series 2x8GB ddr4


EVGA GeForce GTX 1070


EVGA 750W Power Supply


ACER H236HLbid Monitor

If the monitor does not work on 2 different systems I would assume that the monitor is defective - but check it on a known working system.


When you have a known working monitor if it still doesn't work on your new build I would remove the graphics card & connect the monitor to the motherboard's on board graphics.
