What GPU were you using before? If it was an AMD, you might need to uninstall the old drivers first. If it was an onboard video, you might have to turn it off in BIOS.

And make sure your monitor is reading the right input? Like make sure it's set to the DVI channel if thats what you're using.

My old gpu was a powercolor hd 5770 1gb but i uninstalled the drivers before i installed the gtx560 and i also checked the monitors there is no problem with them

Silly question, but you have the PCI-e power connectors hooked up to it, right? I think the GTX 560 takes 2x 6-pin connectors on the back to power it. Only reason I asked is because when I installed my 690, I forgot to hook them up and it obviously didn't work, but the fan still turned on and everything.

if the motherboard makes noises, its possibly telling you the motherboards error code. the mobo manual usually dictates and tells you which kind of beep/alerting function is what problem with the computer so that the user can fix it knowing what the problem is.

motherboard manuals are given to you with the motherboard box. if you have not recieved one, the manual is almost always on teh motherboard spec sheet on the manufactures site(in this case MSI)

checked the manual, its kinda dated and its pretty uninformative =X. have you tried going through a cmos reset just to reset bios options. occasionally it works.

i closed the manual, but cmos resets basically are gennerally defined in two ways. its either theres an onboard motherboard button you press, or a cell battery you remove on teh motherboard and reinsert. doing so resets all bios settings back to factory condition.(doesnt erase anything)

on the manual it says

You can clear CMOS by shorting 2-3 pin while the system is off. Then return to 1-2
pin position. Avoid clearing the CMOS while the system is on; it will damage the mainboard.

so basically there should be some cmos jumper you have to remove, then put back in while its off

Who knows, reseting cmos works for some people. but it isnt a 100% thing. TBH, I would test the gpu on someone elses computer to see if it isnt defective.

the only thing i can physically suggest is attempting to run it on a different computer to see if it isnt the gpus problem.
