It won't work!

So, my friend has built a computer, and he's come to me for help because it doesn't work.

I haven't seen it myself, but he built it with another friend who has built a computer before.

So, he rang me up and said that he didn't know whether to use VGA or DVI and I told him to plug the DVI into the screen from the GPU. He then rang me again saying that didn't work, so I told him to try the Integrated graphics. That didn't work either.

I started to get worried, so I told him to check the LED's and he said that a light near the graphics card is solid red and the MemOK LED flashes red and then goes solid red.

He got the computer Friday afternoon and it is now Monday morning and he still hasn't gotten anywhere..

CPU: i5-2500K
GPU: Radeon HD 6950 2GB
PSU: Corsair 750W
RAM: 16GB DDR3 G-skill Ripjaw
Motherboard: P8Z68-V

Any help would be great, thankyou.
