Working on a ground up build, I have everything connected to the best of my knowledge. PC powers up, all fans running, but no display to the monitor and no USBs seem to be working. Keyboard plugged in lights up for a second and then goes out and is unresponsive. Need ideas.

The cables from your monitor are plugged in to your GPU not motherboard, correct?

Can you post a picture of your pc so we can see where you plugged everything in at?

I removed the graphics card for the latter ones for better view.

You might have plugged in the 4 pin CPU plug for the power supply plugged in the wrong way, try to switch it around.

This is the wrong way.

The CPU power has an 8 pin and a 4 pin right next to each other. I only have the 8 pin installed (it didn't come with a 4 pin connector that I saw)
