    So I build my first computer a few days ago and the fans and the green lights (on the gpu and the motherboard itself) turned on, but when I tried plugging in the HDMI cable into the monitor, nothing displays. I have looked up so many solutions. I have tripple checked all my wires, reinstalled my GPU, reinstalled my RAM, checked to make sure there was no damage, and checked for damage on my CPU, but nothing seems to work. Everything looks fine to me. Its not my monitor because I plugged in the HDMI cable into my laptop and it displayed what was on my laptop. All my parts are new so I don't think it could be a dead motherboard. I really don't know what to do. I have searched the web for hours and repair shops asked for $100 to just look at it. Like wtf. Please any suggestions??? Thank you so muchh.
