Did you disable the integrated graphics in the BIOS?

Are the LEDs and fans powered up?

Open up the side of the case. Check if the graphics card fans are spinning. Check if the case fans are spinning. Check if the motherboard LED"S are lit up. If the graphics card fans aren't spinning the it indicates a graphic card problem. If the case fans and motherboard LED'S are off it indicates a power supply problem.

It may be a situation that you need to wait longer for the screen to come up.

Go through the check lists. They cover most of the common problems that will cause a problem like this. Do you have a case speaker? If so are there any beep codes? Or if you have an LED error display, are there any error codes?

One problem that isn't very obvious is a RAM error. Remove the RAM sticks one at a time, Clean the RAM contacts and blow out each RAM slot. Then re-seat the RAM stick.

Do you have a monitor that you can switch out the current one with?

Or do you have a friend that can test you monitor on their system?

We have eliminated the monitor and graphics card.

Memory.
Did you re-seat the RAM? Did you run memtest on the RAM?

Motherboard.
Did you get a case speaker and check for beep codes? Have you tried switching to integrated graphics?

Power Supply.
Did you monitor the power supply? Did you check the voltages with a multimeter?
Did you switch out the power supply with a working power supply.

Monitor
Have you tried waiting a few (3 - 5) minutes before hitting the power button? Have you tried switching the monitor cables? Have you tried switching monitor cable types?

BIOS
Have you checked if the PCI X16 SLOT is selected for your graphics (when using a graphics card)?

That may be GPU driver problem. You said this problem began with the installing the new graphics card. Perhaps you should return the GPU, and start over with a new card.
