Re: I just did a complete new build of a computer using...
Usually this means that the board is powered on, but that the cpu hasn't been initialized. make sure your cpu pins are clean of thermal grease and that it is properly seated. make sure your board is compatible with the cpu and if you can get a spare (known good) cpu to boot the board with, see if it starts, and see if you can update the bios.
again, basically the issue is CPU related. at some point you may have to just RMA the processor since it is a possibility that it might be DOA. good luck!

You are missing the driver for the monitor. It should have come up but sometimes all the drivers are not or do not activate. If you have a disc for it run it and try to activate the monitor. It could also be the type of hook up you have. Make sure the cable is connected in the right port and that it compatible with your monitor. Might try the user friendly controls on the monitor. Make sure the contrast or black and white settings are not blacking the monitor out. Then there is always the possibility that you have a bad MB. Everything can work and it have a bad monitor driver as a matter of fact I have seen a lot of new and especially refurbished boards that were missing drivers. Also if you have the disc for the monitor you may have to run it again and it should program itself to the MB. Sometimes that has to be done. I have two monitors an Acer and a Dell and every time I have a hard drive go out I have to reprogram the Dell monitor. Try these things and let me know what results you get.
You may have a short between the board & the case. (check it).
Even if this means removing the board. That clicking you hear through the speakers suggest a short. Make sure your using (Stand offs) which keeps your board off the case's mounting surface. Check the back plate so the tabs are touching the ports comming off the board for good ground.
Double check the you have fully connected both the main power ATX_ 20 pin power connector & the auxiliary 4-pin power
connector. pg. 10. Connecting 20/24-pin power cable Remove & re-seat. If your PSU has a 20 pin connector make sure you connect the cable from the correct end.
Without POST you will not get video to load. Reset your bios
