Solved

Neither my Motherboard or Video Card display ports are working.

Alright so my friend decided to buy parts for a computer. They are decent parts and I definitly know how to build one but we ran into a snag here. Now that we have everything in the case the motherboard display ports have no signal even without the video card installed.

Similarly the graphics card display ports dont work either. Plz help is it a dead motherboard?

This is a second question here but Im just confused. I decided to test some of his parts in my computer to see whether or not they were the problem. PSU and HDD checked out but when I replaced the RAM my computer wouldnt display. OK, good, now we know its the RAM.

BUT WAIT. When I put my RAM (presumably working) into his rig I still don't get display.

Side note: Whenever I start the computer The cpu and case fans start spinning but there is no beep.

HELP APPRECIATED THANK YOU.

    Does the one I just posted in the comments work?
  5. Well, first: 1060 Ti doesn't exist.
    ---------------------------------------
    It doesn't beep, so it's most likely the system, but have you tried with a different monitor?

    My mistake. And yes, I've tried 3 different monitors.

    It's usually the motherboard at fault with this problem.
    Since you tried different RAM, different MONITOR, GPU and no GPU.

    Well ok then. Thank you for the input!
  10. I got mine to work with 1600 mhz ram in slot 2 and 1333mhz ram in slot 3 first i tested to boot with 1 ram only and it was in slot 2. So you could try with one ram first
