PC boots up but no video

Hi everyone, I just built my own pc this weekend and it turns on (I'm assuming, all the fans are whirring and there's a led light on the front of the case) but when I connect it to a monitor thru hdmi with my graphics card, nothing happens (same happens with vga thru mobo and my tv) any ideas?

Do you have the 8-pin power plug properly connected to the PSU?

my mobo has a 4 pin plug, iirc I connected it correctly, with the first output on the cable (since the psu has a cable with multiple outlets connected to the same wire).

I'll check back when I can, but my dad isn't letting me look bc he's afraid I'll break something (I'm 14.) so I'm not sure when I'll be able to fix that. >_<

It won't help diagnostically, but just for info you will not get any display via the motherboard VGA whilst using a ryzen 1300. So the only output will be with your graphics card.

Try re-seating graphics and make sure the motherboard connectors to the PSU are all in properly.

hi, we forgot to do some things like standoffs, so we'll rebuild, I'll update if we get it to work

we actually got it to work by ourselves (the motherboard wasn't standoff-ed), but now we keep getting a windows failed to start error after using an installer. Dx
