    I had currently built a pc for the first time. It all went swell until my moniter displayed: "no signal". I had looked this up and I've tryed everything to prevent it.I had also an extra pair of eyes but they didn't know either. So, I came to the understanding that it might be the parts which might be the down side to this error. My Build:

    Zotac 1060 3gb.
    AMD Athlon X4-860k CPU, 4 cores, 3.7 - 4GHz.
    Kingston HyperX 3k ssd 120gb.
    Aerocool 80 plus 600w PSU.
    GA-F2A68HM-HD2 gigabyte.
    16GB 2x8GB DDR3

    (Budget build for the time being)

    All the wiring is done correctly and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've followed the manual redid some of the steps so I'm just thinking its one of parts but which one?
    (I know the cpu is probably bottlenecking but I plan to upgrade it in the future.)

    Thanks for reading.

    My power supply does seem to be running everything quite fine. But do you think that it's the problem with the 'no signal'?

    AMD Athlon X4 860K 3.70 GHz quad core processor

    GeForce GTX 1060 graphic card

    Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-HD2 motherboard
    It appears to have on-board AMD graphics.

    Are you sure the monitor is connected to the graphic card port and not to the on-board graphic port?
    You're correct about the processor bottlenecking the graphic card.

    You can also remove the video card and try using the onboard graphics.

    There is a guide at the top of the forum for problem builds. If you follow ALL of the steps, you will find the cause of your problem.
    Some common errors for inexperienced builders;
    1 The 4/8 pin aux pw connector is not plugged in
    2 Motherboard standoffs not installed in the case correctly
    3 Monitor connected to onboard port rather than the video card port

    Alright thanks, I'll rebuild the pc following all instructions on th post.

    And yes, I've been using a hdmi cable for the graphic card up to my moniter.

    Did you read the question in post #4 which is under the motherboard information?
    It's an easy mistake to make.
