Default Problem after installing pc in new case.

Hi I need a little help here . Today I got a new case for my pc and after unplugging everything from my old case and plugging onto my new case I get no video on my monitor.And I notice the fan on my video card doesn't come on, only the fans on my case...I think I might have made a bad connection. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong? It's a brand new computer so it can't be a bad part.

Re-check all cables, wires, connections, video card, memory, everything. Make sure there are no misplaced standoffs under the motherboard that could cause a short.

Thanks for replying Atomic Rooster

I did =[ I even tried putting it back in the case it was in and nothing. I'm a noob when it comes to computers, so I might have connected something in the wrong place or not connected something.

I have this mobo
GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P ATX AMD Motherboard

a disc drive and a hdd.

I have 2 x2 gb memory.

If iI were to take a photo of my mobo how I have it connected right now, would somebody be able to tell if something wasn't plugged in or wrong?

im gonna cry now ='[

Do you have the power cord connected to the video card? Also check to make sure the 8-pin auxiliary cord is plugged into the motherboard near the CPU.

Yes the video card does have power =[ but does that 8-pin auxiliary cord have to be plugged in from the psu? because I dont have one on my psu. only a 4 pin one. you think that goes in there even though the conection on my mobo is a 8 pin?

I went ahead and plug it in and It worked! =} I get video but It gets stuck at the very first screen that comes up. =[ gosh now what could be wrong? Thanks a lot for your help and time Rooster I'm on my way to having a working computer again! You are the best. what do you think is wrong now, since it now gets stuck at the bios screen.?

Do you have the hard drive plugged into the correct SATA connector on the motherboard?

I have 6 sata connections on my mobo. Does it have to be plugged into the exact same sata port it was in before?

Yes, The BIOS is set to look for the drive containing the OS in a certain port.
