I recently bought a new motherboard, cpu fan, ram, and monitor for my brother because he wanted an upgrade plus his motherboard died. I have a Asus VE208T monitor and a AsRock B250M-HDV motherboard. I've been trying to download an os, but the monitor is stuck on only accepting a vga input, and I am trying to do a dvi-d input. Therefore, I've been unable to get to the bios and I can't install windows 7. I've tried to switch monitors, but the same things happened on a working monitor. I am pretty sure it isn't the gpu because it's fan is turning on. I also know that the dvi-d wire is working because it is brand new. I've tried to adjust the settings on the monitor to make it accept dvi-d, but it won't respond to anything I do. I also tried to use a vga cable, but again it says vga no signal. Overall, I am left with very few options atm. If someone could help that would be greatly appreciated.

I have discovered why it isn't working and it really frustrates me that I was this stupid. I forgot about the motherboard dvd driver which installs all of the drivers, so I feel really stupid rn. Popatim thank for your help I most likely wouldn't have got to the solution without you. (=

I have and an I5 in that computer it worked before I did all these upgrades. Could it possibly be the motherboard? This motherboard only has one expansion slot, so I can't test if it is working. However, next time I am going to respond is after I have put a 1060 in it to see if it is a graphics card problem. Thanks for the help btw.

Update: I put in the 1060 into the computer that has been having problems. The screen still didn't turn on, and to test whether it was a monitor issue or a motherboard issue I plugged a working computer into the monitor. The monitor turned on with no problem. Therefor, I am left with two reasons this could be happening. A. it is the very cheap motherboard that I bought not working (which is very likely) or B. it is the cpu (which was working before I made changes to the computer). Overall, I am going to assume it is the motherboard, but I won't be buying a new one until tomorrow just in case someone else has a thought they would like to add.

I agree with your assessment.

I don't believe that Motherbd has a speaker on it. If you have a plug in one try removing the rame and then booting up and seeing if it generates an error beep code. This would indicate that the cpu is probably fine.
