Is the monitor connected to the DVI port ? If yes, you might try turning the monitor off and then back on after you boot up. Another obvious thing to try is another monitor if you have access to one, or you could connect to the VGA port if possible.

If you didn't benchtest your components before installing them in the case, all bets are off.

alredy tried changing out the monitor and tried bouth DVI and VGA port with the same result.
we have pretty much comfirmed that the motherboard and graphic card are working. and unless both my new ram bricks are malfunctioning it cant see that that's the problem either. :(
