Default video card not working

yea, title says it all. just got my parts today (yay!!) but the ram aint here, and the video card might be fried.

K, i got the card, put it in, screwed it in(had fun figuring out the x16 clip), turned the pc on, nothing. well, i mean nothing as in windows nor the bios doesnt detect it. did i miss something when i hooked it up? there is no power plugs on the card, so its not that....

Its an ASUS EN7300LE x16 128mb version.

mobo = Biostar Geforce 6100-m9

First make sure it's not your mobo and try a pci card. Any way you can test your pci-e card in a friend's computer? Are you getting any beeps or error messages, or just a blank screen?

edit: lol nvm then
