I Built a new computer, it has an Intel Core i5-4460 CPU and MSI ATX motherboard z97-g45, and i hooked up my PSU to the motherboard and case, put the video card in, the hard drive, 16gb RAM, I turned it on and all the fans are spinning, LED lights are on, the monitor is hooked up and it says no DVI display. I put the hard drive and PSU back into my old computer, its a 750W psu so its pretty new, and i plug it in and turn it on and the computer boots up and i can see everything on the screen normally. I checked everything, the cables that go into the motherboard work fine, everything is hooked up fine, i just dont know what to do anymore. Anybody got any advice or things that i should check?
Take the video card out and try the motherboard's video port.
Did you use standoffs when you put the computer together? Did you also make sure that the CPU power connector was plugged in as well as the ATX power connector?

And you have used standoffs?
Are standoffs the little metal things that stick up from the case and you screw the motherboard onto them? Because yea, i used those.

Yes they are.
Try using only one stick of RAM at a time
Does it matter where I put the RAM? Should i put it in the slot closest to the cpu or farther away from the cpu.
It's (usually) the one closest to the CPU. Refer to your motherboard manual to be sure
When you turn it on, does the motherboard beep?
