Hi, sorry it is not working.

If your pc has a dedicated graphics card (gpu) make sure you have the monitor connected to the gpu and not the motherboard. If it is still not getting a signal, you can remove the gpu and connect the monitor to the motherboard and if you get a signal, then you narrowed the issue to a bad gpu and you will have to call DS. If you still don't get a signal from the mobo and you are certain that the cable and monitor work, then you will also have to contact DS for an in depth analysis.

(Note: you must remove the gpu because the mobo detects it when it is installed and cancels the signal to its own video output.)

Good luck and please keep us posted.

A lot can be causing this. Faulty cable, faulty gpu, faulty motherboard. You should diagnose everything to your best ability.
