I have looked inside the PCIe slot, and there's no black marks. What do you mean a 'On-board' vga adaptor? A on-board graphics card?

The fact that you don't hear any beeps is significant as you should get at least 1 beep to indicate successful completion of the POST (Power On Self Test). Do the fans come on? Can you hear the HDD spinning up and can you hear the heads seeking as if the machine is booting?
Does that particular video card have an additional power connector and did you hook it up to the power supply?
The fans come on, Heatsink fan comes on and the hard drive you can hear seeking and you can feel it spinning round
This has no other power supply to it.
I have unplugged the computer and even hooked it up to mine and it never worked. I dont want to take my Nvidia Geforce 88800Gtx out of my system to try it in their's (But i doubt there 600w power supply would handle it lol) I very much doubt its a dodgy graphics card, its new.
Thanks for the reply guys
