Used two different tvs, one has hdmi and rgb in, and the other has pc in (vga?) and hdmi, use two different cables and nothing. I have not used the pc in with audio yet (a double sided vga cable with audio for monitor), was wondering if I even need that type of cable. I used hdmi to hdmi and hdmi to dvi for the two cables. I just got the motherboard replaced (for not working in the first place) and I haven't installed anything yet, because need the obvious to do so. Read it could be motherboard again; hope it isn't true. Motherboard has yellow light that glows in and out slowly, fans of cpu and graphic card does spin, tower light and fan works all while powered on. I don't have spare parts since this is my first pc build. Followed online examples/instructions on pc building. Been a laptop user for over 5 years now. I also don't have a pc dedicated monitor and a laptop does display on both tvs through hdmi. Did try both ram? card slots, as well as, unplug everything and back again. Thought this was suppose to be simple but turned into a frustrating few months now. First being the motherboard wasn't working; thought I did something wrong and wasted money. Was so excited to see the tower to power on after replacement and now this new issue. Thank you in advance with help and/or suggestions. Also did read other threads, reason I hint at motherboard and really hope it isn't.

Since you are building did you try it without the case?
Building on cardboard with the least number of parts is an accepted method to find out if what you have is working.

What do I need for cable?
The same as what we need in a case. Maybe a few less connections. Hookup varies a little from PC to PC so check the product manuals on what connections are needed.
