i have a MSI 915P Combo mother board. I recently installed the power supply and now I am trying to get some video but i cant seem to get it. i bought a pci express video card as the is no agp or integrated video. I put in the pcie card pluged in the moniter and turned on the machine, NO VIDEO!, I also tried a pci card in one of the pci slots and im getting no video out of that!

Could tyhe ram be a problem? i have a ddr266 256mb stick and a 256mb, ddr,333,cl2.5 stick. I am realy having some problems here!, please any help would be appreciated!

pss two vof the ram slots are orange and two are blue, the little middle tab seems to be in a different area on each color, is this for different ram?

You didn't mention your CPU. If you install one unsupported by your motherboard, you get problems.
I also just looked up your motherboard, and yes, that motherboard supports both DDR and DDR2 with a maximum of 2GB.
What video card and power supply are you using?

You could try getting a 20 to 24 pin adapter like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16812201001

Do you have your 4 pin connector by the CPU plugged in?
