I have just built a new computer (MSI H110M, intel i3 8100k, gtx 1050) I turn on the computer and the fans run, there is no troubleshoot light flashing, and the speaker thing is not beeping, but it wont display an image. This is definetely not my first pc build and i have tried everything and i am stumped.

Please list what you have tried.
It is pointless me making suggestions - for you to simply reply - tried it.
That would be a waste of your time and mine

Please also post make and full model of power supply and full details of ram

Are you sure the board supports the processor
8th generation CPU
as the board has the Intel® H110 Chipset and I do not think 8th generation can be used with that chipset

I see a HUGE problem. Your cpu is not listed as supported. You installed an 8th gen processor in a motherboard that supports 6/7th gen processors.
Here is the cpu support list for the board you listed. As you can see, no 8xxx series are listed.

This makes me wonder. The very first thing you do when selecting parts is to check for support/compatibility. This is done for all parts you intend on using ie ram, processor, drivers for any add-in cards, etc.

Although you should have checked, I would not feel too bad about your mistake. Even if you have built systems before, it is an easy mistake to make. A number of people have made the same mistake and I do not think you will be the last. The confusion of course is caused by the fact that both the 8th generation and earlier use the 1151 socket.
IF you have bought the retail boxed version of the processor - you would have seen the warning on the box - packaging had you examined it.
Requires Intel 300 series chipset-based motherboard
