Default No video among other things

So i am building my own computer for the first time and have run into a problem.
With the PSU connected and running.
CPU heatsink fan is running.
Case fans are running.
No lights on the motherboard.
No beeps.
Graphics card fan is running.
There is nothing appearing on my monitor when its plugged into the GFX card or the motherboard trying to utilize the onboard chipset.

Any ideas on what this can be or how i should go about trying to figure out which part of the computer is not hooked up right or not working right?

Specs:

Motherboard: Biostar TA890GXE Socket AM3 890GX mATX Motherboard
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T AM3 Processor
GFX Card: XFX Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5 PCIe 2.0 x16 Graphics Card
PSU: Corsair TX750W 750-Watt Power Supply - ATX

My friend was building the computer and he overlooked the 4pin CPU power -_-. I guess it happens sometimes when your looking at too many different parts. I posted this under the assumption that he got all the power imputs right because he told me he did. Thanks for your help.
