So I just build my very first pc, pressed the power button and all the fans and LEDs worked which made me super proud. Then I turned it off and plugged in my monitor and HDMI cable to the computer and when I turned it on the monitor just stayed black. So I got scared thinking I messed up. I went to Bestbuy and Fry's and they didn't have the VGA to DVI-D adapter and I was planning on buying a DVI-D cable tomorrow. My question is if anyone knows why the HDMI might not be working or maybe if it is the graphics card? Thank you so much in advance!

Is your graphics card fully seated, if so are you plugging it into the right HDMI port? Also can you list your card and rest of specs so we can try and troubleshoot.

Try a VGA or DVI and see if it works if you a have a TV you can use try putting the HDMI in that and see if it works either .

so I tested the monitor and HDMI cable by connecting it to another computer and it detects the signal. So is it the GPU? because I checked the wiring and it's all connected.

Do the GPU fans spin? Make sure the monitor isn't on the wrong channel.

Remove your gpu Boot up windows using IGPU download your GPU drivers then put your graphics card back in and see what that does.
