One long beep, two short. New graphics card problems

Hello everyone, i am new to this board and i have a dilemma. I recently purchased a graphics card ( A NVIDIA ASUS - GEFORCE 650 to be precise.) to replace my onboard graphics. I plug the sucker in and i get no display on the monitor, i also get the regular one beep from the MOBO followed by one long beep, then two short. I have read online that it could be a RAM issue also, but the computer runs fine when using it without the graphics card plugged in.


So, i took my PC to a local repair shop, he has plugged another video card into my computer and the same error occurred, also plugged the graphics card i purchased into another system, works fine.

Now, he suggested the PCIE slot could be faulty and i should replace the motherboard, but, when i plug the graphics card in the slot, the LED lights green as if to state all is well and the fan runs etc as if to say the PCIE slot is fine. I really need some advice on this as i dont want to shell out for another MOBO if i can fix this problem myself. My system specs are as followed,

Medion Akoya E4057

AMD Radeon HD7660D in APU

Windows 8

AMD A10-5700 processor

8GB DDR3RAM

Motherboard chipset - AMD A55

Motherboard - Medion MS-7800

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Check with the mb vendor see if there any bios updates for your mb.
On your mb dd you plug in the four or eight pin video card power plug that near the CPU.

Thanks for you reply. I will check for any updates, yes there's a 6 pin connector that goes into the video card, i have had that plugged in everytime i have tried it. Same result.

No on nEw mb there a plug near the CPU to give the pci bus extra power for these new video cards. Some are four pins some have eight pins.

I dont have anything like that, i think i updated my BIOS i checked Medion's website and downloaded the latest update and ran the flash.bat file, but nothing in my BIOS has changed and my video card still doesn't work in there.
