No display from my Computer

My friend and I recently decided to build a computer. This is our first computer and it was half us figuring the whole thing out and half adding to a few components we had. We have the whole computer built now but when we turn it on the screen says no signal. We are plugged into the motherboard because these are all new pieces. The motherboard is giving power to the system fan and graphics card fans. If anyone could help us out that would be great.

Specs: motherboard-H110M-A
Graphics card-Gtx 760
Ram-HyperX FURY Red 8Gb 2133Mhz

    Yes I have both 6 pins plugged into the graphics card and everything is brand new and I haven’t been able to get the display to work so I don’t have anything installed

    What is your CPU? This motherboard supports 6th generation Skylake CPU's. It will not support 7th gen Kaby Lake without a BIOS update.

  4. The cpu is an i5-6600k LGA1151 and sorry if I’m not responding properly I’m new to the whole forum thing and I’m still working it out

    That's fine, you don't need to respond right away. That's how the forum works, we both respond when we have something new to add. That may not be until hours later.

  6. Can you get a video signal using the video outputs on the back of your motherboard, rather than using your Gtx 760 video card?

  7. No I’ve tried that thinking it didn’t work because the cards drivers aren’t installed yet but neither the card nor the motherboard gives a signal

    Take a closer look at your 1 stick of ram. Make sure it's pushed all the way down in it's slot. Press down firmly on both ends of the ram stick. Clear the CMOS as well.

    The video card should work in default mod without drivers.(now you won't be able to play games without the drivers.)
    When a video card is inserted in the motherboard, it automatically deactivates the video outputs of the motherboard, so you have to connect the monitor to the outputs on the video card.
    I suggest that you remove the vid card, attach the monitor to the motherboard outputs, to see if you can get a signal that way.

  11. THanks that was it. I was trying to run the display off the motherboard this whole time thinking that the graphics card wouldn’t work. Thanks to you both for the help!
