    i finished putting it together fired up my computer and everything is running fine: fans, mobo/mobo LEDs, drives, etc. the mobo is making the usual beep noises on startup. my monitor, however, is not getting a signal from my video card. i tried both dvi and vga ports and neither are giving out a signal. is it safe to assume here that it's dead? :wtc: is there any way to tell?
