I'm afraid what you need to do is to double check all of your connections
Does the video card take a power connection?
Are all plugs, plugged into the motherboard?

Thanks Mark for the reply, video is onboard 3200 ATI, I guess I need to tear it all back down, or at least the front panel and the other small wire hookups, huh?

If you're going to be taking it out of the case anyway, try this:

Set the motherboard on a cardboard box, and only connect the essentials such as: the processor, heatsink/fan for the processor, one stick of ram, and connect the power supply like you normally would (of course you wouldn't be plugging in the dvd drive or hard drive). Connect mouse, keyboard, monitor, and start the computer by using a screwdriver to touch the two pins together where the power button on the case connection would go
