Default Monitor - No signal

Just finished building my computer and 2 problems have arose:

1. The first time you power the computer up, it only stays on for about 30 seconds and then powers off. (Any power ons after that and the computer will stay on indefinitely as far as I'm aware)

2. The monitor is displaying 'No signal' and then goes into power save mode.

Psu: Scan.co.uk: Corsair CMPSU-850HXUK HX 850W Modular Power Supply (PSU)

Moniter: Scan.co.uk: Digimate - DGM 22" LCD Monitor - L-2262WD

Gpu: Scan.co.uk: Palit 1536MB GeForce GTX 580 GDDR5 NVIDIA Graphics Card - NE5X580010CB

Mobo: Scan.co.uk: Asus P8P67 Pro Rev3 Intel P67 Express Socket 1155 Motherboard - P8P67 PRO <Rev.3.0>

Thanks, Overload

Can you post some pictures (clear and sharp) of the interior of your PC?

Ok when i said 30 seconds, it's more like 15 seconds.

Here are pictures: ImageShack Album - 48 images

Wasn't sure exactly of what to take so i took lots

And some with it on http://img641.imageshack.us/g/p4030295.jpg/

And i've also noticed when putting the moniter plug into the graphics card, it pushes it to the side slightly so it can fit in, this might have something to do with it.

With the system powered ON, look at the top, right hand side of your motherboard. Do you see the Red Light? Refer to page 2-14 in your Users Manual, this is telling you your having a problem with the Memory.

Make sure the Memory Sticks are oriented correctly and Fully Seated in the slots. I would also clear the Bios (unplug the computer from the wall socket, remove the battery from the mobo, wait 1 minute and re-install the battery, re-apply power).
