Custom PC not showing on screen

April 22, 2016 at 12:30:03
Specs: No OS yet
So I just built a custom gaming PC, I put it together and the whole thing lights up and all the fans work, CPU, Motherboard, PSU, GPU, and the SSD are all hooked up correctly. Any ideas as to why it's not appearing on my screen?

Is there onboard video as well as the GPU? If so does it work on that?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

No, it doesn't have on board graphics

Might be a bit of oxide on the GPU. Try cleaning its edge connectors with a soft pencil eraser then popping it in and out of the socket a few times to ensure there is no oxide on the socket itself.

Make sure all PSU connections are firmly in place.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Please list all your components including the power supply make/model. I'm guessing you didn't benchtest your hardware before installing it in the case? It's makes it difficult to troubleshoot when you skip that step.

So it's never worked? Fans and drives spinning up and LEDs flashing don't mean it's working as they are powered separately.

Do you hear any beeps when powering it up?
