I pulled it out and put it back in and the lights are on on my graphics card so there is power.

Does the motherboard have onboard video?

If so, you may need to switch the video settings in the BIOS to use your PCIe graphics card.

Try running with the MINIMUM amount of hardware if still stumped. I believe this is:

- motherboard,
- power supply,
- one stick RAM,
- monitor
- CPU + HSF
- graphics card (don't use yet if your motherboard has onboard graphics)

*RAM can ONLY go in specific slots. You need to read your motherboard manual. For a single stick this is usually ONLY one of the four spots or it won't boot.

You can also run memory diagnostics using memtest ( www.memtest.org OR www.ultimatebootcd.com )

You need to test without your graphics card using the motherboard's video output.
