So, the only place that you can plug the monitor cable into is your video card? Do you have any onboard video, from your motherboard? Also, a couple of other things to check are the power cord, monitor cord, and power button.

Cheers!

There's no on-board graphics on this mobo.

I think you have to double check the installation. Make sure the graphics card is connected properly and seated correctly on the mobo. Try both outputs too.
