computer doesnt boot up

my computer was working fine until i brought a new video card Nvidia goforce 5500 and plugged it into the AGP slot in my system. When i power up the system, it powers up but there is no signal coming to the monitor. I  cannot see the splash screen of the intel desktop board and i cant access the BIOS. Please Help.

Regards
Ravi

Make sure that the card is seated correctly and that your monitor cable is properly attached.
If they are and you still cannot see any screen (including BIOS), I would suggest inserting your previous card and testing.
Remember that just because it's new doesn't mean that it cannot fail. I have had many electronics bad right out of the box.

Maybe you don't have enough power for that card or this card is malfunctioning.
Which PSU do you have and which configuration do you use?

Does your motherboard have onboard video?  If so, plug the monitor back into it and check to see if you must change a setting in the BIOS to select AGP as primary video.

You are asking us a compatibility question without telling us what the parts are.

Nvidia geforce 5500 is only the video chip on the card.
- Who made the card and what model is it?

- Who made the motherboard and what model is it?

thank u all for your comments. I realized now that the actual problem is with the LAN card and not the new graphics card. I removed all the card and switched ON the 'barebones' system.
It still was blank. After a thorough internet search, there was a suggestion to re-seat the RAM cards. Voila, the system started. Now i inserted the graphics card and it works. My suspicion about the problem was wrong. I replaced the mother board too without checking whats wrong..

Sorry, but i learnt a lot of things yesterday. Thanks once again..
