Screen won't turn on

I build my pc today and when I was finished I turned it on. Everything looked like it worked but the monitor didn't responded. I replaced the video card but it still didn't work. What do I do now?

 

Edit I forgot to say when I turn the PC on the power button won't shut it down

Are there debug lights on the motherboard? Or better yet an included 2 pin speaker for beep codes, or even better yet, a number display?

If your monitor HDMI, try replacing cables.

Did you try another monitor?

Yeah looking at the manual you don't seem to have debug lights. Strange, I would have guessed it would be a standard feature by now. Guess not. Do any RGB LEDs (I believe your chipset cooler has RGB) on the mobo, CPU cooler (if yours has RGB) or on the GPU light up? And do any fans start to spin?

Unfortunately you are giving me so damn little information to work with. I would really appreciate complete specs and better yet even some photos of your system, both up close and of the whole system.

The fans spin and when the pc turns on the motherboard lights don't turn on. Only if I flip the psu switch they go on for a millisecond.

 

Edit: the rest of the rgb does work case and cpu

Thanks, I have had this exact issue on an AM3+ board. Power delivery problem. But the issue could either be the CPU, the PSU, or the motherboard. In my case it was the motherboard. Make sure all connectors are secured, both to the motherboard and the PSU. If this doesn't work, I would have personally done a lot more troubleshooting, but that is really fucking hard A) On a forum, and B) with a member that won't type more than 3 sentences per post. To avoid more headaches, assume the mobo is DOA, and contact either the manufacturer or the retailer if you bought it online for a refund/warranty/replacement.

 

Can you also send in another high resolution image, but of this area: IMG_20210329_192419330.jpg.a7070355d345be67c8a1e82ad6a934b2.thumb.jpg.f56763242d6a3a6dcd35fb57cfbed833.jpg

Ok, try again, but can you get the flash on the right hand side of the board. The components on the right hand side are what I'm really looking for, but I also wanted a look at the left side just in case. Also try to set the focus/depth of field to be at the depth of the motherboard rather than a cooler or heatsink. Because if I need focus anywhere on your image, it is at the motherboard's height on the right hand side of the mobo.

I can't tell, but those may be debug LEDs. It is just unfortunate that unlit LEDs are nearly same color as other SMT items.

Is it me or is the EPS power not plugged in? (Also that looks like a missing motherboard screw)

Correct me if I am wrong but this should be plugged in 100% of the time right?

You are right. I asked him to make sure everything was plugged in so I didn't bother looking in that corner of the picture. This is probably your problem OP.

It is called the EPS 12 volt cable. It looks like the PCIe power connector, but it won't fit in a PCIe power socket. It is one of the many cables that should be included in with your PSU, assuming it was modular.

It isn't modular but I don't think it matters much. I didn't plug any of that sort of cables in but the big one, do I maybe need more cables I need to plug in?

The PSU is not moduler: https://seasonic.com/core-gc

I think you are looking for this one. Picture from the above link. It is two four pin connectors than clip together on the side to build a 8-pin connector because some lower power boards only use half of the connector. 332248572_Screenshot2021-03-29140053.png.9b7fda4f109888e9a191106b69555e43.png

Also yes, that is a missing standoff screw near the EPS 12-volt socket. You should put it in, but you don't have to right now. You only need 4 screws in to keep your board secure, assuming your cooler isn't really heavy (experience from the same AM3+ mobo I mentioned earlier where one of the standoffs was just bad and would secure in, but the CPU had a giant Noctua cooler on it that was bending the board when the case was upright. I ended up unscrewing one of the standoffs from near the front panel pins and placed in the top left corner to make sure the mobo was supported.)
