Absolutely if your getting a black screen then yes it could still be the GPU
If I could test the GPU that would atleast let me know its one of the internals.

I don't know personally, that would make it much easier to test if it could.

Are you getting any Post Codes? Typically if its hardware related upon boot up a post code will be given. And u could even update the bios to possibly fix the issue. Here is the link to obtain your Manual to check post codes and possibly update the bios if its that out of date.

You need some graphics facility to drive the monitor. And his mobo does not have an on-board.

I managed to get the LCD Poster back into the motherboard before I had to leave for work, it runs through all the processes and then ends with "errormsg". I'll take a video of it so its easier to understand, I just got back from work so i will in a bit.

A few more suggestions:

1) If you upgraded your CPU you might need an updated BIOS for it to work right.

2) Take the whole works apart and put it back together. Pay special attention to where the motherboard standoffs are.

3) Make sure there aren't any bent pins on the CPU (or Socket) or on any of the devices you are connecting.

4) Make sure everything is seated properly and the contacts on your RAM and cards are clean.

5) Make sure there is no dust in RAM or card slots.

6) Make sure you haven't pinched a wire somewhere - check them all carefully for nicks in the insulation.

It might also help if you tell us which parts are leftover from the old computer and which ones are brand new. Go ahead and list them all.

Do not give up!

Do you even have a speaker connected to your mobo? Some Cases dont have a speaker heh That definitely makes sense though.
