check all your cables and connections... sounds like something is not conected all the way. if you have a floppy, check that. I know I have the hardest time trying to get those stupid pins to line up sometimes... if not then check all the connections again... then reseat your video card and try again.... if not then reset the CMOS (pull the battery if need be for about 15 minutes or so) the try again...

could be a weak powersupply and too many things plugged in

yes I have a 550 watt PSU and 2 dvd writers, 2 hard drives, 1 floppy drive, PCI card and a 6800GT. So yes your PSU should be fine.

Go back to basics unplug everything then slowly bit by bit add things. Add video card and ram then turn on. check if that works. If it does then proceed adding wires. Make sure your USB wires are correctly positioned, so not upside down.
