I have not gotten my new computer up and running yet. Keeps saying no signal on the monitor. Everything is installed correctly into the motherboard, power source, etc.
Here are my specs: (Keep in mind I have not got it running to BIOs yet)
Asus M2N-SLI AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ at 3.2GHz (these two were in a bundle) XFX GeForce 8800 GT Ultra X-Pro 600 watt Power Supply (SLI-Ready) OCZ Reaper 2x 2048 Memory
Now personally I think the memory is the problem now. I don't know, but it doesn't say it's SLI-Ready. I don't know if it has to be to work on the motherboard, and if that is why there is no signal to the monitor. I hope I don't have to return another part and get something else. But the memory seems the likely villain here. Hopefully someone can help.

Re: No signal to monitor when booting.
(1) Remove memory from mother board and start the system if you happen to listen long beep then RAM is not working properly.
(2) Clean RAM conducting area on mother board with clean cotton cloth, put one peice of RAM and test and check the othe peice also, if working you could any sign display . Before doing all these check mother board any LED is glowing if so your SMPS is working after you turn on UPS.
(3) Check for all proper connection for all cables. Have you connected video cable of monitor to mother board VGA (it will not work because it is disabled as soon as you installed XFX GeForce 8800 GT), your viedo output only will come through XFX GeForce 8800 GT VGA port.
(4) If propelm persits Deassmble complete the system and reassmble & do n't connect HDD, DVD, floppy. Cehck with bare mother baord, processor, RAM (put one picese at a time) by connecting viedo cable of monitor

Usually this problem happens when the video card is sending a signal to the monitor that the monitor does not recognize. (Kind of like me telling you how to fix this problem in a language I dreamed up myself.) The monitor will work on a different computer, because that computer has a video card "talking" to the monitor in a language it understands. So the solution is a different monitor that has a resolution setting your computer can talk to. Possibly you can borrow one, change the resolution of the card, and put your own back in. You can plug in and unplug monitors while the computer is on with no problem, to test.
Hi Start the computer in SAFE mode. F8 before Windows starts. Once in SAFE mode change the screen resolution to 600 X 480. Do this by right clicking anywhere on the desktop. Once done then reboot into normal mode.
Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.
This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.
If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).
If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.
I have been having the same problem with my hpvs17 monitor when i start to use my web browser on linux distros. Now, for the next few days i am going to try my system on a regular crt monitor. if the monitor does not crash, than i will have to say that the hpvs17 monitor has a defect.It seems that when i go online, while i am in the middle of searching something, the monitor just shuts off and i get "input signal out of range".
