I reset the BIOS, got the same results.
I made sure everything was properly connected, 24pin, 8pin, video card PSU, ram seems fine, all the proper fans are spinning, front panel and motherboard LEDs functional.
The HDD light is on but doesn't flicker, but I can feel the drive itself spinning. (Not sure if the HDD light would show activity if I haven't installed an OS or configured the BIOS yet?)
I don't have another monitor connector but I have an HDMI that hooks up to my TV, tried that on the motherboard and both the old and new cards. TV recognized there was something plugged in but didn't display anything.
Imma be real sad if it turns out I've fried everything
