connecting your video directly to one of the motherboards native video ports? Maybe the video card is bad...Just a thought ..Digger
After building my new computer, it ran but only gave video thru hdmi and froze occasionally. I noticed it was freezing when there was even a slight disturbance to the cases so I rebuilt the computer to reassure everything was firmly connected and that there were no errors. Now the computer turns on but there is no feed even thru the hdmi.

I can't figure out if it could be a compatibility issue, however my friend who helped me order it is pretty smart and I don't think she would make such an obvious mistake. I also don't have any extra parts laying around to swap and troubleshoot. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this. My guess is some sort of hardware failure but I can't decide what is damaged
