Gaming PC

I just built a Gaming PC and I am trying to start it up. There is sufficient power in that the fans and LED lights turn on when I power up the PC. But, I still see no display on my monitor. When I first turn it on, the fans on my graphics card spin for a little, then stop. I have a GeForce GTX 1050 Windforce OC 2G graphics card. I don't know why I can't see anything!

Clarification Request
Did you test build it on cardboard?

In reply to: Gaming PC

The reason why is we can add part by part to see what it is. Also avoids the problems of case shorts.

That is a common gaffe is to put all the standoffs in the case. Where there should be any.

Cardboard building is best the first time out. Start small.

Should I take it apart?

In reply to: Did you test build it on cardboard?

Are you suggesting that I take everything out and start from scratch?

Or make it as small as can be.

In reply to: Should I take it apart?

Putting all parts together at one go is not a good idea for new builders.

My advice is the usual cardboard build to be sure what you have is fine. Start small.

It's already all together

In reply to: Or make it as small as can be.

The whole thing is completely built. All the components are working but no display is showing up on the monitor

I think I was unclear.

In reply to: It's already all together

Since it doesn't work all together you have to make it work with the smallest amount of parts.

We don't need a case, we don't need drives. We only want to see the bios screen. That's a much smaller machine and lets us start smaller and build up.

Power Supply

In reply to: Gaming PC

On this case you need to change your power supply, power supply cant handle your graphics card power this is why power is falling. I faced this type of problem when first bought my graphics card, same thing happened with me like you, then changed my power supply and problem was gone.
