    Need some advice. Not sure y every time i built a desktop and later in the future (maybe a year and half) i always get a "no signal" to monitor not even a POST start-up. I know within that time period, I sometime remove dvi cable so i can fix friend(s) pc since i only had one monitor. Is it because of that and cause video card not sending signal to monitor? or it's the motherboard.

    I did re-seat the memories and still no signal to monitor. No any kind of beep. Sometime when i move video card left/right, it works and hear one beep then that when i get signal to monitor. Now, nothing. No beep, no signal, no POST. Just dark screen.

    Please help me why? and how to prevent in the future. Thank you

    clean dust if there's any, re-seat gpu(make sure its seated how it should) if that doesn't work try to use onboard vga or another one(you can borrow it from a friend) it that doesn't work replace mobo.

    Forgot to mention. I also did re-seat video card, there's no onboard vga. I will try new video card. So if that's doesn't work, it could be mobo? Could u please tell me what's the cause? is it 'cause i removed dvi cable too often w/in a year time frame that cause a malfunction?

    nope, it actually can be caused due to 3 probs.. heavy vga and cheap chinese case deforms mobo, or heavy intel stock cooler with clamps deforms mobo :biggrin5: or can be chinese case itself deforms mobo..(seen only once), also it shouldn't help but you can try to remove all memory modules and check each by placing only 1 at a time.
