details on components of your build please.
i.e.: make and model of motherboard, ram, cpu, harddrive, vidoe card

from experience, inccorectly installed ram or incompatible ram with some motherboard, (asus notably) will try to match or make th ram work with the motherboard the process of rebooting is part of the auto-sensing system)

Did you use the same cable from your laptop to the monitor? Does your laptop have a DP slot? You know it's not the monitor. If the same cable(s) are being used from the laptop and working but not the card, then the card may be problematic.

I used the same HDMI cable but my laptop doesn't have a DP slot. I am now thinking the Motherboard may be shorted.
Edit - I have got it to boot and give signal to monitor, I only have the speaker, cpu fan, SSD, one stick of ram + CPU power and 24 pin ATX, It is asking for a boot device should I install windows or keep going one component at a time?
