I'm assuming those are upgrades to your existing system...

1. Try the new vid card with the old ram and see if that works.

2. Make sure you pushed in the ram all the way, sometimes you have to push pretty hard. :)

3. What motherboard do you have and is it beeping at you or showing any lights flashing? Need some info. :)

Does the PC boot up? i.e can you hear the single beep that comes when you turn it on? Can you hear the HD working as if it's loading something?

Or is it just a blank screen and the PC just stands there doing nothing?

same thing happened to me when i got my "blazeing fast" voodoo 3 in 1998 (it was stil crappy back then) adn the monitor wouldnt start try jiggleing around the card besure its in all the way it can be tricky and check the cable running from the monitor to pc besure it screwed in right aside from that i dont know what else could be wrong
