Computer won't display video.

I bought a new motherboard because my last one (MSI 760GM-P23) wouldn't show any video. I just received this one from a friend that worked 30 minutes earlier and this one does not show video either. I tried breadboarding it an no success. I did however get it to beep when I removed my memory. It was one continuous beep and I Googled it and it was memory (Just to be sure). I reseated my memory and cpu. I tried a compatible cpu (AMD Athlon II X2 260) and that did not work either. Put a known working gfx card in. Nothing. Pulled the power supply from my current pc and tried using that one. Still no video. I also tried clearing the cmos and reseating the jumper. yet again, no video. I went through the Tom's Hardware checklist and after making sure every little thing was right. No video. >.< I have no clue what else to do.

No, at the time I didn't have a spare cd drive but now that I have one it won't function properly. So I'm pretty sure its the mobo that went bad somehow >.<

I got it. For some reason my motherboard won't accept slim versions of memory. I had a big stick of ddr3 1333 laying around and I popped that in and it loaded to bios :D  thanks for your help
