Could be your power supply isn't giving it enough power, what card and how many watts power supply do you have?

The card itself could be dead D:
That power supply is more than sufficient

First, pleas post you`re system specs MOBO, CPU, RAM, GPU and so forth.

The MOBO will post beep codes (codes are in MOBO manual). If there are GPU, RAM, CPU or MOBO issues there will be beeps, if case speakers installed correctly.

Explain the problem in detail.. Like this ( no video output but case fans and leds, CPU fan, and the video card fan running, or not ).

Are you sure the PSU is connected properly/correct?

Are you sure the GPU is connected properly/correct?

Are you sure the monitor is connected properly/correct?
If your monitor set to accept the input from your GPU? IE is it on DVI, or HDMI or w/e u're using?

Have you tested your RAM and GPU in another computer? Or tried plugging in a known to work GPU or RAM?

If all fails take the motherboard to a local computer store and let them verified if you`re MOBO is defect.
