Default Computer Setup help

Ok i just bought my new computer and its sweet :-). my specs are MSI k8T Motherboard
ati 9800 Pro 256 MB
AMD 64 3000+ Venice Core
450 Watt Antec Power Supply
Thermalite XP90 Heat Sync and Fan
1.5 GB Corsair Ram
250 GB Maxtor

Ok I have it all hooked up and ready to go. However, I turn the computer on and it works fine. U can hear it loading and the fans are all on. The Monitor just blinks and acts like it doesnt have a signal. It does because it doesnt say no signal like it normally would. I have tested everything to figure it out. the monitor works fine and the video card works fine in a differnt computer. Does anyway got any ideas?

What about the RAM? Have you tested that somewhere else? Or in other slots?

Hmmm... that's odd... Have you checked the Motherboard with another Graphics Card?

Well then it is the Motherboard. You'll have to send it back and get a replacement. It would have been a bit of a mess had the test Graphics Card worked!
