Well, if it is booting but no picture, try 1 ram stick switching slots. Some mobos are EXTREMELY picky about how its RAM is arranged. Also, if you have a cd rom or anything hooked up, unhook it as well to delete variables.

i'd be almost willing to stake my life that it is the (P)4 pin power connector.
