Did you make sure your power supply can run that card? Are all the power connectors if it needs them plugged in? Try re-seating the board if the rest looks good.

May still be the power supply if it's a cheap brand, test the card in another computer.

Another thing, was there a video card previously in this computer? did you uninstall the drivers for the last one?

you did plug the monitor into the video card didn't you ? or did you leave it plugged to the motherboard ?

if it's plugged into the card............. plug back into motherboard. enter BIOS and look for the graphics settings and select either "auto, PEG or PCI-E............... not pci. follow instructions on how to save ( will be on bottom of screen ) or hit F10 and then enter. when it reboots shut down power supply, put new card in and attach cable to video card. reboot. should work now. when you get to desktop install drivers or go to windows update and that will find drivers for you.

Let's wait and see what he says after following "swifty_morgan"'s advice.

It sounds like one of two simple problems:
a) monitor NOT plugged into graphics card, or
b) BIOS set to ONBOARD graphics

Just to clarify the STEPS:
1. Hook up to the ONBOARD GRAPHICS
2. BOOT into the BIOS ("DEL" key likely)
3. change to PCI_E graphics or AUTO (see motherboard manual if needed)
4. SAVE changes in BIOS
5. SHUT DOWN PC
6. Switch monitor to GRAPHICS CARD
7. BOOT PC
8. If it works, INSTALL LATEST DRIVERS ( www.amd.com )
