    just got done trying this but still no boot, the monitor still stays in standby when you turn the computer, on also changed out the ram "pc3200"1 gig xms with a stick of Adata from my other computer "Also pc3200"1 gig and no luck. Also changed the monitors out with the one off my other computer , no luck and the last thing i tryed was putting my old card back in but no luck there. i feel it all started when my old monitor would stay in standby and the led on it would just blink. i thought it was just time for a new card, but when i first replaced the card and the drivers it ran for about 2 months on the the first xfx 9800 gt then went back to this problem of the blinking led ,then i bought a new monitor , before it got here i hooked the computer up to my other lcd monitor and it worked fine, the next day i pushed the power button the monitor would not come out of standby. i have tryed everything that i know but nothing works even rechecked all connections.

If you had received a cd with the card that contains drivers i would replace the old vga card and, assuming it boot s okay, load the CD. after this shut down, swap cards, then reboot.

Blank screen at boot up

Sounds like you need a new motherboard how old is his computer but, before you start looking for a new board try resetting the main board jumpers maybe that will get it to work and if there are no jumpers remove the battery from the motherboard this does the same thing.

No signal to monitor when booting.

(1) Remove memory from mother board and start the system if you happen to listen long beep then RAM is not working properly.
(2) Clean RAM conducting area on mother board with clean cotton cloth, put one peice of RAM and test and check the othe peice also, if working you could any sign display . Before doing all these check mother board any LED is glowing if so your SMPS is working after you turn on UPS.

(3) Check for all proper connection for all cables. Have you connected video cable of monitor to mother board VGA (it will not work because it is disabled as soon as you installed XFX GeForce 8800 GT), your viedo output only will come through XFX GeForce 8800 GT VGA port.

(4) If propelm persits Deassmble complete the system and reassmble & do n't connect HDD, DVD, floppy. Cehck with bare mother baord, processor, RAM (put one picese at a time) by connecting viedo cable of monitor

i dont know about the red light, but all main boards these days have a built in protection if the cpu fan quits. check the cpu fan connection, ensure that it and the heat sink are dust free. if still no go. update  your question with exact info..e.g. does absolutely nothing.. how many beeps you long b 4 it dies.. final note: be careful what you touch.. static can harm more that most think and the oil from touching can retain heat.
