    Hello Hanstad98, and welcome to TSG.

    If you have a video controller card plugged into the motherboard and also on-board video, make sure you are connecting the monitor to the HDMI connector of the video controller card.

    If the monitor has multiple video input ports, make sure sure the monitor is set to use the correct input.

    Does anything show on the monitor when the computer first powers up and before Windows starts up?

    People say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in your case, we may need a full parts list of all the major components of your computer if it is a custom product or the manufacturer and full model number of a standard, stock configuration computer.
