Computer won't boot after adding Sound Blaster Z. Help please

Hello, I bought a Sound Blaster Z and installed it yesterday and my computer wouldn't boot afterwards. It has power but won't boot (monitor stays off and no power to G15 keyboard). When I remove the sound card the computer boots again fine. So everything is good with my computer. Also the sound card is compatible with my computer.
Is the sound card dead or what? I checked everything for loose connections. I also tried the sound card in the PCIe x1 slot and the PCIe X16 slot, same results both times.

motherboard-Asus M4A87TD EVO
cpu-AMD X4 970 black
ram-4gb gskill
vid-GTX 470
