plug your monitor into the integrated video (the normal one that isn't your video card) then if you can see video as you boot up check your bios to see if its set to use integrated video or your video card. I don't remember were this option is but look through your bios, there should be something like use integrated video. You want to say Disabled for that option. When your done put the connection back on the video card and see if it works.

If that doesn't work then try (while using your integrated plug) going online and updating the drivers for your video card while its in the system. Sometimes different cards don't have a generic driver that can run it for the first time, thats why "normally" with newer cards the screen is lower res until you install the normal drivers for it.

Lastly maybe your power supply cant handle the card because there is not enough spare power for it.

Did you try just one stick of ram (check your board manual for the proper slot for 1 stick)?

Does everything run except your video, or does it shut down?

Do you have the square molex plug connected to the motherboard? (some older boards don't require one, don't know about yours)

Do you have the heatsink fan connected to the motherboard?

Has it worked and just quit or are you just trying to get a dead one going?

Are you certain that the CPU is seated down tightly?

Try clearing the CMOS and see if it comes up that way?

Post back and we will keep trying. Actually the thing that bothers me is that you say it does not beep when memory is out of the board. Normally, that means a dead motherboard, but you say you have replaced that. Call me puzzled, but not giving up yet.

i did clear the CMOS, it did not work. i shut it down one day and the next time i tried it it did not come up. the fan and heatsink is connected and the molex connector is hooked up. and the fans on everything do work and if i plug in the hard drive and the dvd player they do get power.
