PC doesn't display video output

Hey LTT community,

I recently got my hands on a budget PC, but unfortunately, I'm facing a frustrating issue where it refuses to display any video output. I've tried various troubleshooting steps, but I can't seem to figure out the root cause. Here are the system specs:


Motherboard: Asus Z370-A LGA 1151 Motherboard

CPU: Intel i5-8400

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x8GB

PSU: MS-Tech 650W Power Supply

Cooler: Random Air Cooler

Case: Cooler Master Case


The problem lies with the motherboard not outputting any video signals. Everything else seems to be working fine as the fans spin up, but there are no error beeps or indicator lights suggesting any faults. The only light that illuminates is the PWR-LED.


Here's what I've attempted so far without success:

-Cleared the BIOS

-Tested multiple graphics cards

-Tried different PCIe slots

-Attempted using the onboard graphics

-Started the PC with only one RAM stick, switching positions as well

-Swapped the power supply

-Removed all unnecessary components

-Reseated the CPU and checked for bent pins


Despite all these efforts, I'm unable to get any display output. It's perplexing because the motherboard appears to be functioning correctly, but the lack of video output leaves me clueless. I'm reaching out to this community for your expertise and guidance.


If anyone has encountered a similar issue or has any suggestions on what else I could try, I would greatly appreciate your input. I'm open to any trouble

shooting steps or advice you may have. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Best regards
