    1: knockoff the caps lock as is referred to as shouting which is a forum rule no no.
    2: does it show anything when the pc is 1st turned on? is there power? does the computer appear to be loading stuff even tho can't see on the monitor?

    Yes everything seems to load. Fans run, lights blink, just no signal to monitor. I used a friends monitor to test it out too and his said no signal from pc. My monitor goes into standby mode. But everything else on the pc itself seems to be running.
