I bought and installed an intel I5 and p8z77-v motherboard and when I turn the power on the pc turns on but it displays nothing.

Do you have a monitor plugged into your graphics card?

Then what makes you think it's a problem with mobo and cpu rather than graphics card?

When I did an out of box test run I didn't have display. Make sure you pushed everything in as far as it can go. My cable to my graphics card wasn't all the way in.

Does the computer produce any characteristic beeps?
Did you connect the 4-pin aux power connector from your PSU to the relevant connector close to the CPU on the motherboard?
What happens if you remove the video card and connect your monitor directly to one of the motherboard's video outputs?
What happens if you remove all RAM?

There are no beeps and I did all the steps you mentioned but the same problem continues.

I should actually say when my computer displays nothing I mean it doesn't go to the bios. When I boot my pc It doesn't even show the Asus logo.

Connect your monitor to the motherboard. If you have no plans on using Virtu, then you can disable the integrated graphics in the BIOS, otherwise you'll probably want to keep things the way they are and install the Virtu drivers.

Next step: disconnect everything, remove the motherboard from the case, lay it on the cardboard box it came in, and do the following things:

1) Remove all RAM
2) Install just one stick of RAM in DIMM slot #0
3) Connect the 24-pin ATX12V connector from the PSU
4) Connect the 4-pin 12V aux power from the PSU
5) Flip the PSU switch to the On position
6) Connect the monitor to the motherboard
7) Identify the two pins of the motherboard's front panel interface connectors which you would normally connect to the case's power button, and short them with something that conducts electricity. The computer should power up.

If it doesn't work, try again with another stick of RAM.
If it still doesn't work, you can try reseating the CPU and don't screw the heat sink on too hard.
If it still doesn't work, something's wrong somewhere. Could be the motherboard, the RAM or the PSU, my bet's on the board.
