I upgraded my AGP graphics card on my Intel 850GB motherboard, and after turning my computer on there was no dislpay. I though maybe my new card was faulty so I put the old card back in and turned on the computer again. There was still no display. At first I though perhaps I had damaged the AGP port, as the fan and lights were working on the computer, just there was no display. I then noticed that no lights are coming up on the keyboard (which normally do when I turn the power button on) so I am not sure what is going wrong, or how to fix it. Any help?

A flash of lights on the keyboard indicates I.O. keyboard controller is functioning if you don't get the LED's flash on and off check your connections. make sure they are fitted properly. You may have to clear the CMOS/BIOS as well. Do you get any beeps from the PC at power up at all?

There are no beebs of anything from the PC. The power is fine, and the DVD drive can be opened and closed, but the actual PC doesn't seem to boot.

If all you did was install a new video card than it stands to reason that perhaps something got jarred loose, reseat everything, sound card, video card, memory, all cables and connectors, etc.

Try pushing the videocard deeper into the slot. Maybe theres a lever u have to pull first and it closes when the Videocard is deep enough?
