First install the graphic card properly then plug in the LCD or monitor cable in it . If you are getting display then it is ok. After it try to download latest drivers for the graphic card from here http://www.nvidia.co.in/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-in
The best option at this point would be to take the x1650 out, put the 8800GT into the bottom slot and test to see if it boots. If it doesn't boot, try the other slot. Some motherboards also seem to have problems with some video cards as well.
Is it at least powering up all your fans?? You might have a DOA (dead on arrival) Motherboard. What size is your power supply?? I would think that is is large enough with the 8800. Also, is your processor seated well?? Are your memory sticks seated well?? All silly questions I would think, but I thought I would throw them at you.
Everything worked with the other motherBoard right?? If all the questions are answered yes then I would RMA your board. Have it replaced via the warranty.
You will have to access the BIOS and disable the onboard graphics from there. Before you install your new card, boot the computer. As it is performing the POST, enter the BIOS (usually delete or F2 gets you in.) Once you have disabled the on board graphics, save your settings and exit. Then install your new card and attempt to boot the computer. If it will not boot, locate the CMOS jumper and activate it to reset back to default settings.
Your Motherboard has an onboard video chipset made by Nvidia. Nvidia and ATI have a history of not playing nice with each other.
I have 2 possible solutions for you.
1.) Remove the Radeon card and use the Nvidia onboard card (Essentially a Geforce 6100)
2.) Enter the bios (Usually done by hitting <Delete> or <F12> while the computer is booting up) Your Motherboards manual can tell you for certain. Then find the options for onboard video and disable it.
Then boot up the PC, When it say starting Windows press <F8> to bring up the windows boot menu. Select "Start in Safe mode" Once this loads up open the device manager, look under "Display adapters" find the entry for the Nvidia adapter, right click on it and select either "Uninstall" or "Disable this device"
Which you choose depends on your personal preference Whether you like Nvidia or ATI boards better.
If it makes your decision easier a Geforce 6100 is roughly equivalent to a Radeon 8500 in performance.
If one of the components are not porperly connected or has faluire...the system boot up is halted with some beeps...You need to check whether the RAMS a properly fixed...processor cooler can be losened...

Hi s _beukelman7, one of the most important spec's of running two SLI cards is they must be identical. Your trying to run a 8800 & a 7300. They are both NVIDIA **** they are not the same. They are different & will fail in your system. Pg. 6-2 in your mnual. Either buy another 8800 or another 7300 SLI card.
It is suggested you go to NVIDIA web site & allow NVIDIA to check both your two graphic cards & system for the latest drivers. If NVIDIA finds you need updated chipset drivers please (follow all instructions) or your will find yourself re-installing your OS. http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
The two most important item you need other than checking the above link, is the correct power supply. Your manual suggest a minimal of 500w psu when using a single SLI card. I suggest running a 550w for dual cards. The second item concerns the SLI cable. It must be clean.
After installing new windows you should install all drivers needed by you computer. You should have a a cd utilities nvidia graphics card if you have not then you scan the driver it in web. try search in this website. http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
if it is build in to the mainboard better go to the manufacturer website of your board. hope this help
