My computer lights and fans turn on but no signal to monitor PLEASE HELP ME

I recently bought all new parts for my computer, and now, my computer does not function properly. When I plug it in, the lights and fans turn on, but the monitor shows no signal. I have tried both, my gtx 750 and my new 1070, which have both worked on another pc. I have tried disconnecting the motherboard from the case, and turning it on, manually. I have tried taking the ram, in and out, and putting in another ram slot. I have tried resetting the system, many times. I have tried using a different power supply unit. The cpu is producing heat. I can feel the heatsink, getting warm. Everything is plugged into the power supply that I can see. My hard drive has also, worked on another PC. Also, there are lights, labeled +cpu, dram, and +vga on the top right area of the motherboard. Those lights come on for a very short time after I power the system on, and then turn off completely. The dram light does not come on, unless I press the computer's reset button. Even then, it only comes on for a split second.

My build is:
motherboard: MSI H110m Pro VD Plus
Ram: G.skill aegis 16gb ddr4 2133
Processor: intel core i7 7700k
power supply unit: Replace Power, RP ATX 850 watt BL
Graphics card GTX 1070/750(tried both)
Hard drive: Toshiba DT01ACA200 2tb HDD

  1. Could be BIOS version incompatible with your CPU. If you have a SkyLake CPU, put it instead of 7700. If it boots, you need to update BIOS to version at least 1.4

  2. Your mobo has built-in graphics with both VGA and DVI-D output connectors on its back panel. VERY likely the default setting in BIOS Setup is to use that system for video output. In that case, there won't be any output from your added video card in the PCIe slot.

    Connect your monitor to the appropriate video output on the mobo's back panel. That should get you a display you can see. If it does, boot into BIOS Setup and look for where the video output is configured. Look for a setting to NOT use the on-board chip and use the video card in the PCIe slot, instead. After changing this setting, remember to SAVE and EXIT. The machine will re-boot and then you will need to change your connection for the monitor to use the output on the video card instead.

    When I plug the vga plug into my monitor from the motherboard, there is still nothing on the screen. I still can't get to the bios.

    As to not spend so much money, I was wondering if you knew what type of processor I would need. Could I perform this action with a celeron g3900? I just want to test this with the cheapest processr, as to not waste as much money if this doesn't work.
    Also, do you know if it's possible to update the bios without seeing anything o the monitor, because I could download the bios and put it on a usb stick, if so.

    Yes, G3900 will work.

    Nope, the board can be updated only if it POSTs, and it can't do that without supported CPU. Some high level boards can updated without CPU at all, but unfortunately for you not this one.

    This didn't work, to my dismay. I'm pretty certain there is an actual malfunction with something in the computer, so I'm going to take my PC into a repair shop in town and see if they can figure out what the issue is.

    Without proper BIOS version, motherboard simply cannot recognize that KabyLake CPU - it knows that there is some CPU in there, but does not know what it is, and in consequence does not know how to 'speak' with it. Why? Because the BIOS version was made before KabyLake CPUs were created, so obviously it could not include any data on them.
