PC wont display anywhere ?

Brand new Pc, built, went from running perfectly fine to not displaying anything at all after 3 days

I've tried 3 different HDMI cables and 2 display port cables on 2 monitors and 2 TV's, no display

I've cleared BIOS and still, nothing. 

I've disconnected and reconnected the GPU, and nothing

Performed several hard reboots, nothing

Motherboard lights up, fans spin, everything but the display and keyboard seem to work



Monitors led will turn white and power on briefly before turning orange and black screening. Almost as if cables are briefly detected

    People tend to purchase a new video card, but forget to actually connect the monitor to the card, they forget and leave the monitor connected to the onboard video.

    In the event the above is properly connected and still no video, try the following.

    Enter the CMOS setup upon boot and change the GPU to onboard.

    make sure to connect the monitor to the video out on the motherboard.

    With the above configured you should have video present.

    The above is a preliminary step to make sure the display is active.

    Once the above is active you can then begin to experiment with the GPU card

    If I lived closer to you I would come over and help.

    With no details of some "motherboard" of some "new Pc", who "built" it, what happened that was unusual in the "3 days" of use, what "GPU" that you "disconnected", no guessing for you.

    My cousin's computer was running very slow, so I tried to find out if CPU was not being cooled.  Dried out goo on the liquid cooling block, put on fresh.  No help.  Put back original fan cooler, stayed at 47*C, ran great for 4 hours, but I let it go to sleep.  Never booted again.  Went back to water cooling, swapped positions of RAM strips, tried one strip, cleared BIOS, took board out of case, tried board alone, no other devices, other PSU, now it is just a partly powering up slab.  I have bought a replacement board of another brand.

    Take it back.

    Under the terms of Guarantee you can demand your money back, as the pc is 'not fit for purpose'

    It sounds like a faulty GPU to me anyway.
