No signal pc

I built a new pc over summer with no problems for around 1-2 months. It was working fine but then I turned my computer off once and when I went to turn it back on my monitor screen showed no signal. I started to look the issue up and came to the conclusion that it was probably a hardware issue. I reseated my ram and graphics card. Took literally everything out and put it back in but still no signal. I thought that maybe my motherboard was dead so sent it out to the RMA. Nothing was wrong with it. I started to give up and after a few months a went back at it. I also sent my graphics card to the RMA and they concluded that nothing was wrong. With the help of my friend, who built his pc with me over summer also, I began to replace my components one by one till I got to use his graphics card. The computer actually booted and got into windows with his graphics card installed. I turned off the computer and turned it back on and again no signal to the monitor with his graphics card that was just working. So after that my friend and I put my original card back in and turned off all power, cleared the cmos, held the power button for a minute or 2 and turned on the computer. My computer then booted up and we re-downloaded the drivers for the graphics card. It began running perfectly for 2 days. Until I received a notification that I had updates to windows that were available so I scheduled them to be installed over night (I have no idea if that is the reason why it started to not work again) and when i woke up and there was no signal yet again. I have replaced every component in my pc with my friends hardware including the power supply, ram and data cables. My monitor seems to be working in perfectly fine condition and i have been playing xbox on it for months. When I mean no signal shows up i mean i cant even get into the bios. The displayport cable and hdmi cable I have been using work good also. I have looked at just about every forum and nothing has worked

Please help I have spent too much money and time trying to get this pc to work.

  3. Are you overclocking anything (CPU, GPU, memory)?

    Is your BIOS running a default/normal configuration (stock speeds only) or an optimized (where the system will attempt to OC itself) profile?

    What speed is your memory running at (in the BIOS)?

    I have been able to access the bios a few times after i have cleared the cmos and I am running default bios settings and the memory is 2400

    When you say optimized do you mean changing things from the bios itself or in windows through other software?

  5. Many modern BIOSes have pre-set profiles (i.e., Quiet, Performance, Normal, Balanced, Optimized, etc). Are you using such a setting in your BIOS?

    That would likely be something else from a profile in the BIOS.

    With a tool like CPU-Z, what speed is your CPU running at?
