to see if the vid card is working, look under it and see if the fan is running. also make sure the switch in the back of ur PSU is switched to 115volts.

Make sure that all your optical drives and harddrive are set to master/slave apropriately. Sounds crazy but Have 2 masters on one channel or one slave or both slaves can confuse the motherboard and make it do some pretty crazy stuff.
