More info please

What other hardware have you installed?

Have you formatted the Hard Drive?

Does the MoBo have on board graphics?

If so, shut down, remove your card and plug the monitor into the on board, then go into the BIOS and disable the on board and shut down. Plug the G Card back in and it should work from there.

If Jester2k's suggestion doesn't solve it, then do check that all "cards" and memory chips are properly seated home into there slots. It is one reason for your dilemma, I know, I was that Plonker!

Is the old memory the correct speed to work in the new motherboard?

Try resetting the BIOS using the jumper on the board (see the manual).

I would double check that all your hardware is compatible, if you've upgraded just the MoBo will it work with your processor etc
