Exclamation FINALLY PC boots, but no input in moniter...again

SUCESS!! I told ya guys my mobo wasn't fried! My old PSU was fried, and I got a new one today. I tried to boot it up, nothing. Ends up I had my cmos jumper on the wrong setting which is why it wouldn't boot.

OK, one down, one to go.

Now I am having the ol problem of it not detecting my AGP card. When I say not detecting, I mean the moniter shows "no input". I know the card works, but just in case I might try another agp card (It'd have to be shipped to me though).

Sooo, PCI card works, comp POSTS. Would anything in BIOS get the agp card to detect? I get beeps when the agp card is in, 1 long beep, followed by 8 short.

Would putting in PCI card, loading up bios, enabling AGP card work? Or if not, would loading/installing windows then updating bios work?

Or would maybe my HDD not installed properly, would that do anything w/ agp?

Would those one pinners mean anything? I have reset SW, power SW, and the leds plugged in. I don't need all that other crap, do I?

Your AGP card should have it's own BIOS, which will run after the card is detected

That beeping means its not detected. Did you check to see if the bios is loaded in the graphics card? (use onboard video)
