Default Need an answer to this ASAP

So, I dont have a video card for my computer, and there is no onboard video.

I turned the power supply on, just to see if anything would boot up. And then pushed the power button.

But nothing happened.

Is this because I dont have a video card installed. Or could it be another issue?

Help?

Did any fans spin up, or any lights go on?

The computer itself should start up and you might here a beep or two and you will notice the fans starting to spin... with or without the videocard.

Look to make sure the powersupply is connected to everything right.
