If you posted your specs it would make it alot easier to troubleshoot...

First thing I would look would be is it seated in correctly.

Then, I would look to see if the card requires another molex or other power dongle to work.

Third, I would check and see if your PSU has enough power to run the card.

Do you have the integrated video disabled in your bios? That could cause conflicts if it's still on.
