Default New Mobo... but monitor isn't working.

I recently purchased a new asrock mobo. Now this is the first brand new mobo I have installed and thus far the only one that has given me a problem. When I turn it on everything seems to work except the monitor doesn't come on. At all. Now I am thinking this is a driver problem, but how am I supposed to fix a driver problem if I have no display. I can't even get into the bios to do anything either. Has anyone had this problemo B 4? Right now I am using my back up PC to try to find a solution fo this prob. I have tried to run the cd that came with the mobo hoping that it might have had some generic driversto run the display. Nope...I have my monitor plugged into a Nvidia G force 4 MX440 graphics card, b-cuz there is no integarted video on this mobo. I really have no clue as to why this is happening. If anyone could offer some insight I would greatly apprciate it.

what makes you think the machines working. You will hear the drives spin up etc, even if there is a problem with the M/B.

Make sure the PC speaker is attached and listen to any beeps. note the no. of beeps and thier duration and post back.
