RMA card problems, maybe?

A few weeks ago I was having problems with my GPU that lead me to RMA it. I sent it away and turned off the power on my PSU since I was going to be away for a couple of weeks. When I came back I installed the new GPU but my screen was black, it was on and I can sometimes use the menu to choose inputs or settings etc. But other times it puts itself in sleep and I cant wake it, the power light blinks with or without the GPU installed. 

I have tried with a DP cable, 2 separate HDMI cables each with a DVI adapter on one end. From the GPU to the monitor, from the MOBO to the monitor, DP and HDMI simultaneously and switching inputs and nothing. When the monitor powers on I get the company logo and a no signal, then either a black screen that I can use to change settings on the monitor OR a black screen as if the power is off.

My computer starts and runs fine otherwise, the capslock light responds when pressed. I have removed and reinstalled the RAM one at a time, the coin battery on the MOBO. Removed all power connections and held down the power button and currently have all non essential components unplugged. Right now it's just the MOBO, RAM, CPU, CPU cooler, SSD, HDD, and an HDMI to the monitor. 

ANY help is welcome and I'll respond asap. I wasn't sure if this was the correct place to ask so redirect if needed and thanks in advance.
