Did you connect power from the PSU to the card?

You might be dealing with the no video issue from the PCIe X16 version 2.1 issue in 1.x slot which your motherboard has, unless there is a newer BIOS available then there is little you can do except exchange the card for a GTX550Ti which is ver 2.0 which has no known issues. It will deliver similar performance.
