Default New Bulid, kinda starts

Hi, just finished my first new bulid yesterday. Everything seems grand to me but when i switch the machine on there is nothing coming up the monitor.

I have the feeling that it is going somewhere because when i go to turn it off i've to hold the power button for a few seconds. But i can't be sure about that either.

The hardware i've got is

MSI P6N SLI Plantnium Motherboard
Black Diamond 500W Powersupply
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz
XFX GeForce 8800GTS 500M 320MB GDDR3
OCZ Gold GX XTC DDR2 PC4200 2048MB KIT
320GB Seagate Barracuda Sata
250GB Seagate Barracuda Sata

Also I checked to see if was my graphics card, so i but in my friend Club3D Radeon X1650Pro 256MB into it with the same results.
So if anyone can help me with this I woukd be most grateful.
Thanks.

Thought this may help.
2. If you intend to install only ONE x16 graphics card, make sure that:
a. your graphics card is Installed on the PCI_E2 slot;
b. the SLI switch card is set to non-SLI mode.
3. If you intend to install TWO x16 graphics cards, make sure that:
a. these two graphics cards are of the same brand and specifications;
b. the SLI switch card is set to SLI mode.
4. The PCI_E4 slot can only operate with PCI Express x 8 speed and only
supports to install graphics card in SLI mode.

so it starts with the motherboard out of the case , but not with it in the case?

if that is true then you were shorting the mobo on the case somehow.

recheck your installation and make sure you had the standoffs in the right places. esp that you only have the standoffs in places where there will be a screw thru the mobo.

Hi Again
So have you used the red paper washers for the mounting screws on the motherboard. That could cause a problem if you haven't.
