ok the only think left that you can do is turn the system off (unplug it) and remove the cables from the hard drives and pull out all the cards ( video / sound / ...) .then try to boot and see if you get a post . also how many sticks of memory do you have?

What is a post? I have 1 stick of ram(2gb). Can you shed some light as to why this may have happened?

ok now where getting somewhere,
in your first post you said no keyboard power and a blank screen. if it says no video then you should have said that from the start. return the video card for a new one and see if that fixs it.

Ok, sorry about that, I'm just not that knowledgeable about computers. It was a second hand card, but I only want to return if its 100% the card at fault. But I also have integrated graphics...so shouldn't they work?

no big deal,
as for the integrated graphics i think you need to go into your bios and enable it.

You could try removing the graphics card, then removing the BIOS battery as you did earlier to reset the BIOS, then replace the battery. That should set things to defaults, which should reset the BIOS to use the onboard VGA. If that does not work, it may be your motherboard and not the card that is bad. You would have to try another card to be 100% sure it is not the card at fault, though.

Also, make sure you practice good electrostatic discharge (ESD) habbits and keep yourself grounded when touching PC components (Avoid Static Damage to Your PC | PCWorld).

For ESD Safety, follow these steps:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Ok I'll try that later. Does Anyone know why my motherboard would've gone though? All I done was put in the new graphics card, and it was low profile, so shouldnt have really damaged it? I'm just really confused by it
