Motherboard has no onboard video output

I just bought a new motherboard for my computer im building, an abit an52 ( I plugged in everything, the hard drive, ram, video card, and power supply. When I connected the video card to my monitor, and turned on the computer, nothing showed up on it. I'm guessing it doesn't work because I don't have my drivers for the GPU.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? :??: Everything showed up having power.

  1. The first screen is the black with white writing start up that you'd normally get when you boot and that doesnt need drivers so thats not the problem .

    First thing you could have missed was to plug in BOTH power leads to the motherboard . One has 20/24 pins and theres a smaller one that has 4 or 8 pins to power the processor .
  2. Both of the power leads are plugged into the motherboard :(

    and i don't even get the bios screen!!!
