Hi, i read some similar topics to this on here, but didnt feel like they were helping me as i still havnt solved the issue!
I've built myself a new PC today, put it all together, with help from an experienced PC builder, and everything it fitted securely and properly. When i start up the computer, my monitor immediately goes into power saver mode, and will not come out of it.
This is what happens when booting (I have NO OS currently installed); - Press the Power Button - Keyboard lights come on, then go off - 1 Beep from the computer, none after - DVD drive will not open - GFX card, PSU, CPU and case fans all working
My Setup: Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L motherboard Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor 2.5Ghz Corsair VX550W PSU ASUS EAH4850 GFX Card Seagate 500gb HDD

Will the monitor go into it's own config screen ? If not, it could be defective. You said it displayed a white screen so it is not likely that the brightness control is turned way down.
Check that the monitor is connected correctly to the system. Try another monitor that is known to be good. Does the monitor work on another system, say a laptop or another desktop?
Windows will boot up without a monitor and if you are running any servers on it, you can try to connect over your LAN. If the computer takes it's IP address from a local router, you can check the router status screens to see if the address is in use. That would prove Windows is running and that the monitor could be the problem.
Used monitors are not expensive these days so they are easy to replace. You should have multiple monitors anyway. This is the 21st century, not the twentieth when screen size revealed your pay grade in the organization.
Good day..!!Since there is beeping sounds of your cpu,i think its better to check the memory of your cpu,and try to clean it up with cloth,if its still not working,try to use other memory,then you have to clean it up also the cpu,coz it might have dust inside it can cause hang up..!!thanks..
Step1:The light on the monitor is blue when it is on? And orange when in sleep mode? Check to make sure all the cables are plugged in completely. Perhaps the video cable attached to the CPU is loose.
Step2: First of all, check all the cables and make sure they're all securely connected. if you can, hook up your computer to a different monitor and see if it was the monitor. If that didnt work, you may wanna open up your computer and check to see if the video card is in place and fully in. And if that doesnt work, if you really wanna go the extra mile, borrow a friends video card, install it, and try to boot up your computer.

Check all power cables plugged into M/board if these are correct remove all hard ware hard drives / cd player and anything else except for video and memory and test to see if it boots. If it does, one of the removed hardware is faulty if it does not then you have M/board failure
Make sure all the cables are plug in tightly from the back of the monitor going to the PCU or your tower, try using or plugging power cable to different power source as well... Thanks for using fixya!!
