Default Video Card not working

I just made a new computer build with an ASUS A8N-SLI deluxe mobo. When I boot it up there is no video. I have a PNY Geforce 6600GT PCI-E in it. Is there a compatibility issue here? Has anyone else had this problem? Please help, all input appreciated-

test the card on a mates pc.

does ur mobo have onboard video? if so, link ur monitor to that, so you can see what you are doing to install lated nvidia drivers.

lack of power would cause it to not put out an output display? the fan on the chip is running fine, so i would think it was getting power.

try removing all other stuff that is not absolutley nessessary, eg, soundcard, any usb devices, modem, extra harddrives...

it will give you a bit more room within ur psu wattage to experiment with, and check the card.
