AFAIK the P5N-D does not have integrated Video Card, but by reading your post I got the feeling that your pre-assembled system would have already a Vcard, otherwise it would not work.
If that's the case, have you removed the first Vcard before plugging the second one?
If your sytem came with one 9400GT and you're trying to SLI with your old Vcard, have you triead all 4 DVI outputs (just in case). In addition, is the SLI bridge connected?
IDK if the 9400GT requires a power connector or not but, if indeed it does require, have you plugged the connector in your old card when you swapped the cards?
