Default New video card

Greetings Everybody!!!

I purchased a PNY Technologies Nvidia 6200 chipset Video Card. The problem I'm having is that after installation, when I try to turn the comp. back on it won't do anything. Fans will start, but no BIOS, hard drive activity or anything else. it was suggested to me that the card was damaged so i went on and exchanged it...still the same problem when i installed the new one.

Motherboard is a P4VMM2, 512 MB RAM, 2.0GHz P4, 300 w power supply.

Thanks for any advice.. short of "buy a new comp. "

That I did. I forgot to mention that the card says AGP 8x and the motherboard's AGP goes up to 4x, but I was told it should work since 8x is backwards compatible????

It should be. Most AGP cards are 4x/8x. So it should. But the video card shouldn't prevent the BIOS from starting up. Even if you didn't have a video card it would load the VGA video within the port. I don't know what the problem is. Obviously not a power supply issue because everything boots up. No clue what the problem is dude, call tech support?
