New Build PC No Display

I've just built a new pc specs 430w corsair builder series 80+ bronze intel core i53350p asrock H77-MPRO Radeon HD7870 500gb seagate 8gb corsair vengeance (which isn't on the motherboards QVL)

What happens is when I turn it on there is no display on my tv which is a LG42LD450. I'm using a HDMI lead and I've tried it from the HDMI slot on the graphics card and the motherboard but no display. I also have no audio connection from the front panel so I can't hear no beeps. Please help me as this is my first build and I don't know what to do. Any help appreciated

Yeah I did list my components on a couple of sites like whirlpool.net and everyone said its fine they told me to change the graphics card, wished I went on this put up my components then at least someone like you could point me in the right direction.

As I said it is a learning curve. I did not really understand the web when I first started, had a friend that sort of helped but I got there.

But I am really surprised you did not get an adapter cable with your GPU but it seems it is not included in XFX GPU's. Need to remember that, not that it matters I have spares,after a while building PC's you collect loads of bits and pieces or spares.

Glad I could be of some small help. Any other problems then post away,I'll keep an eye open for you.

Next thing to do is to install your operating system. Then all the motherboard drivers, or the ones that are not installed automatically. Then go here and get the latest graphics card drivers. AMD. Either let AMD auto detect or just go through the drop down menus. Then use Windows update to do it's thing. Hopefully you will be good to go. not forgetting your anti-virus.

I think I might of bought a fake copy of windows 7 on amazon, it keeps saying genuine microsoft software in a pop up is it a virus.

It is not a virus but you need to activate Windows and verify your license key. You can do this on the web or by phone it is easy. Doubt it is fake if you got it from Amazon.

You do not need to activate for thirty days so do not concern yourself with that for the minute.

Where or when are you getting this pop up and describe what you see and exactly what it says. As bumpkin quite rightly says you are not going to get a fake copy from Amazon.

I don't think I have built as many PCs as Chronos the 2nd, though I have built several, but the one I am using now, built about two months ago, is the first one that just worked at first switch-on. It is very easy to make a tiny mistake that leaves you stumped, until you stumble on it and put it right.
