I plugged everything in and everything had power. My gpu fan is spinning but I get no signal. I’ve tried taking it out and putting it back but nothing has changed what else do I try?

Hello and welcome to TSG!!

You really need to give us a bit more to work with here. What kind of system are we talking about? What happened prior to it not working?

OK, you need to post your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact processor, exact pw supply, etc, etc.
Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

Next have you read the guide at the top of the forum for problem builds? If not, do so. If you follow ALL of the steps, you will find the cause of your no POST problem.

Common errors for inexperienced builders;
1 The 8/12pin aux/cpu pw connector not plugged in
2 Motherboard shorting to case due to incorrect placement of standoffs
3 The 24pin atx connector not fully seated
4 Ram, video card, etc not fully seated
5 Parts not compatible [unknown since we have no idea what parts you used]
6 Monitor connected to the motherboard onboard port rather than the video card

Has this system ever worked? Or is it a new build that will not power up?

Have you checked out the guide that crjdriver referenced above?

this is a new build and yes I’ve tried all of those but none of them changed anything. It’s turning on but it doesn’t display anything in my monitor.

Does it power up with the video card out? Connected to onboard video?

Tried all of what? If you had followed ALL steps, you would know what is causing the problem. The last few steps tell you to swap your parts one by one with known good units ie motherboard, ram, pw supply, etc.

You do understand that the video card you installed is now 8yr old and was a workstation [not gaming] card when it was released.

The CPU is no powerhouse, either, for that matter ...

If the system does not POST when you did the out of case build [with the video card removed and monitor connected to the onboard port]
Then you need to start swapping parts OR test each of your parts in a bench or test system.

Even the motherboard is 2 1/2yr old. Are these new parts or used? If used, did you ever see it work?

You have not answered; what exactly did you try from the guide? If you had followed ALL steps, you would already know what part or parts are defective.

OK, does it POST with the onboard video only (card removed)?

You've got the 4-pin power connected to the motherboard in addition to the 20+4 power connector, right?
