no, PEG is right.

Well, if all those settings are correct, and there's STILL nothing coming up on the monitor then you might have a bad card. Two last things to try before you return it though.

1. Does your monitor have more than one input source? E.g. VGA and DVI? Make sure it's set to the correct source
2. Reset the BIOS. Take the side of the case off, unplug the power, remove the silver coin-shaped battery from the motherboard. Press the power button a few times, then put the battery and power cord back in. Try booting.

If it's still broken after that, take it back.
