My computer has been out of commission for a week waiting for my new psu since mine died. Just swapped psu and comp turned on but im not getting anything through my monitor and it worked perfectly fine the day my comp died. Says im not receiving signal and connections are fine. Am I missing something?

try plugging it in another port. Like if you have 2 DVI ports on your video card and used the top DVI port, try the bottom. Or if you're using HDMI, switch to dvi or dvi to vga.

I remember I had this problem when I built my second desktop. All I had to do was put the monitor's video plug in another port.

Do you have another video card to test with? It's possible that when the PSU died it also killed the video card.
