Maybe it's the graphics card? It could have been damaged by ESD or it could have been faulty when ou bought it?

yeah, are there any beeps? Try removing a stick of ram to hear for beeps. It could be either of the ram's fault. If not, then it might be the graphics card, see if it's seated properly etc.

cheers i think it may be the graphics card. do you think i should take it to pc worlds pc clinic to get them to get it running?

Ask them how much, you might find that it is cheaper to buy new because I would be surprised if they can repair it, do a Google search to find price

Does the motherboard have onboard graphics?

  casper69 23:28 11 Apr 2006

Question above are there any beeps? did you connect the front PC case speaker

  casper69 23:32 11 Apr 2006

the speaker that csme with the pc doesent work as i conneted it both ways and i cant hear and beeps( motherboard is asrock 939dual-sata2)

I doubt its the spaker not working, Your best bet is remove all hardware from the setup and just have one stick Ram, Graphics card and no Drives connected and try to boot the computer see if it will go to BIOS setup screen
