PC not working, monitor showing HDMI no signal

I recently bought these parts for my PC-
1)i3 6100
2)RX 470
3)kingtson fury hyper x 8x1 Gb DDR4 stick
4)WD Caviar Blue 1 TB
5)Corsair VS 550 PSU
6)BenQ RL2455HM 60.96 cm (24 inch) Console Gaming Monitor with RTS mode

7) motherboard - Msi H110 Pro Vd
The motherboard manufacturer and the monitor manufacturer had given me power cords but they didn't fit in my home sockets. i guess they were Chinese power cords and i had some adapters at home and none of the m fit so i used the power cord that i was using since the last 4 years.i guess nothing went wrong here because both the monitor and pc are getting power. The Rx 470 had an hdmi port and so i connected monitor to it. when i turn the power on in the pc everything is working CPU fan,GPU fan,System Fan and the monitor also turns on. it asks me to select which port have i connected the monitor to so i selected HDMI 1. previously it was showing no cable connected and now it has started showing HDMI no signal.Why is this happening? can i trouble shoot it in my home? do in need to buy new parts?. all my parts except the HDD are new. the HDD is also just 4 months old. please help.

  1. Remove your GPU, and attempt to boot with your onboard graphics (the HDMI port on the motherboard). Do you receive signal at that point?

    there is no HDMI port on my motherboard (sorry i forgot to mention MSI h110m Pro Vd), I tried something similar and i removed the HDMI cable from both the graphic card and the pc, then plugged in a VGA cable to the monitor and to the motherboard.Then also it showed No signal found, during this process though i didnt remove the Grpahic card from the mobo
  3. Ok, with no HDMI onboard, use the onboard VGA or DVI port (if either are accepted by your monitor - from your response, it sounds like VGA is).

    You'd need to remove your GPU before doing this. I suspect your PSU is simply not capable of powering adequately. The VS line isn't the best.

    The problem doesn't seem to be with PSU( or i guess it could be i am no pro) because everything is working on the motherboard,cabinet fans,cpu fans and i guess power is reaching the GPU too because it's fan is also working. did you mean it can't supply enough power? idk it could be that but it seems to me 550 volts is quite sufficient and yes, i did remove the graphics card and the busing a VGA cable plugged in the monitor and the motherboard. the message changed to no signal found, so any further help here?

    The GPU getting power (to spin up fans) and getting enough to actually operate (display) are two different things.

    The VS 550 isn't the best PSU, and your symptoms reflect that (although there are other potential causes too).

    Remove your GPU and try as I suggested - see how that responds.
