Default video card

I recently bought an audigy2 zs and tried to install it but my computer would not detect it. I noticed it wasn't going in the pci slot all the way so i moved the motherboard so that it now is but no my graphics card will not work. I turn on the computer and get nothing on the monitor or the tv i use as a second display. any suggestions would be helpful

Reseat your graphics card. You might also have an IRQ conflict, but first try reseating your graphics card.

Try taking the sound card out. If the video card works then, it's most likely and IRQ conflict like DarkBlade said. If not, static may have killed it.

The graphics card still does not work without the sound card in.

Do you have any other card you can switch it out with?
