Yea both connected and they are connected correctly. even tried with my spare to see if one of them were somehow broken.
 
Does the computer POST.

if the little case speaker is connected it gives a single beep if it has started properly . If there are faults they produce various beep codes .

so does it POST?

is the monitor plugged in and turned on?

Ohh missread your post. Well no it doesnt make a sound when i boot it.

and yea the monitor was plugged in and truned on. Both i tried with.
 
MSI doesn't use beep codes. There should've been a led bracket that came with the board with 4 lights on the back. This will give you a diagnostic light code.

You can try pushing down on the video card to make sure it's seated all the way. But you should hook up that bracket and get the code.

The flaw in that is the computer isn't exactly homebuild. It came with everything in it just started acting wierd so if it's something not mounted on the mobo as standard i might not have it.
