Do you get BIOS beeps? When I did my build a few months back nothing would display on the screen my initial reaction was that it was the graphics card, it turned out my CPU was dead on arival, graphics card was working PSU was working fine you could see the power getting to the motherboard and the fans, changed the CPU and it worked fine!

Just changed it with a different one, as it had it my supervisor was building the same computer so he had the same CPU so it was nothing to do with compatability problems. If you can try another CPU in your computer one that is compatable, dont put yours in someone elses incase it is faulty :p This could not be the problem at all but it happend to me, and I didnt get any beeps either!

Well I've only just turned 18 last week :p hehe. I wouldnt of thought there would be any other way as you cant view whats on you're screen. It could be numarous reasons. Have you tryed re-seating your graphics card? Have you tryed a different cable connecting the monitor to the pc? Infact tryed re-seating everything?
