I really wanted to build a gaming PC, and before I knew it, I'd invested $2000AUD of my hard-earned savings and locked myself in my room until completion. I turned it on for the first time in anticipation, but... No VGA signal!

The VGA monitor cable is securely plugged in, but it's not receiving a signal.. Also the red VGA_LED lights up and stays lit.. :( I'm so upset... Everything went smoothly when building it too! All fans and aesthetic LED's are working and the power LED is fine. What should I try? (Keep in mind I'm a beginner!)

Please help :(

Build:

MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO

Power Supply: SilverStone Strider PLUS 750W (80+ Silver)
CPU: Intel i5 3570k
GPU: GALAXY GTX660Ti 3GB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 16GB (2x8GB)

Yes, all 3 vital plugs are in.

I don't have a HDMI cable, but yes I've tried DVI/VGA (both on board!)

I've made some progress with this! I've found out it's the graphics card doing the damage! :) Gonna double check everything is plugged in VERY securely! Thanks for the link!
