Assuming you don't have another video card installed (if you do, it will disable the on-board video, so either remove it or use the connection on the card). Do you get a black screen or no signal message on the monitor? Does the PC have more than one video output of the same type (VGA, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, etc.)? If so, try one of the other ones and see if they work. If you're not using a separate card and have either tested the other on-board ports or only have one, it could be that it has failed.

If this is a new PC, verify that the monitor works with another computer with the same VGA cable,leave HDMI out for now,if you don't have PC try it at a friends house,etc...Once you've verified the monitor work with the good cable then plug it back in to the iBuyPower and once you've powered it up there should be a beep from the PC signifying that it's booting up. If still no video then the separate video card might have been unseated and needs to be reseated by taking it out and putting back in ( only open the tower if warranty allows you cause you don't want to void it,in that case call the customer service) If still no video then it could be the video card,another peripheral or the motherboard could be bad. From the specs on line if you have a DVI port then you will need a monitor that's HDCP (Protection) compliant,if that's the case I'm betting the HDMI is also and will only work that way.
start > control panel> device manager> network adapters...
next WRITE DOWN the adapter info
on internet access computer, download the driver files to a flash drive, install them on your machine from the flash drive. be certain to check operating system compatability when selecting which driver package to download.
Make sure the input on the TV is set to hdmi port 2. If it doesn't automatically view on the TV, you have to go into the graphics card adapter settings to set the view to an alternate monitor (your TV). Normally there's also a hotkey command as well (normally one of the F# keys) to switch between displays
The fact that your old Palit GT220 worked shows that your system components are NOT faulty.
The Palit GTX 260 requires the following
1) A PCI-Express 2.0 comliant motherboard.
2) Two 6 pin PCI-Express power connectors.
3) Minimum 450W or greater system power supply.
Lets break this down a little
1) You already have a motherboard that supports this card so no problem there.
2) I am unsure whether your power supply has two 6 pin PCI-Express power connectors, it should have one though and the GTX 460 package should have a molex to 6 pin PCI Express power adapter that you can use for the other.
3) Now it comes to the power supply itself. Currently your system has a 480W power supply. Through some calculating it seems that a system of this spec should have at least a 550W power supply. This means that your current power supply is 70W out. This may be why you get no signal, there is enough power for allthe other comonents but not enough left over for your GPU.
Before you go out and buy a new power supply just check that both 6 pin power connecters are firmly clipped in. If after that the card still doesn't power up then I suggest you purchase a Cooler Master Exteme power plus 550W or greater power supply.
You may have a couple of problems here, with you saying it`s a gaming PC it most likely has a graphics card installed which will likely only have outputs for DVI or HDMI, VGA is not usually supported on newer cards. What you need to look for is on the back of the PC where you are plugging in your monitor are you inserting the plug vertically, i.e. straight up and down? if so this means you are connecting to the motherboards onboard graphics which will be disabled if you have a graphics card. If you are using a VGA monitor then most likely it is a blue plug on the board you are plugging into, if you have a graphics card then the most common outputs are what is called DVI which is a slightely bigger white plug. You need to look slightly lower down from the plug you are connecting to and see if there are one or two DVI sockets which will be mounted horizontally. If this is the case then the motherboard socket will be disabled, there are a couple of solutions to this though, you can remove the graphics card which will re enable the onboard graphics and allow you to use your monitor, you can buy a monitor with a DVI input or you can buy from most PC stores a DVI to VGA converter which lets you use your existing monitor with your graphics card although the frame rates and refresh may not be so good, the latter is the method I would recommend to get going.
call ibuypower technical support. if you brought it from them
if it's under warranty call the company you brought it from.
if you try to fix it yourself, the may not take it back. and keep your money.
that being said make sure your monitor is plug in the right port from the picture I saw on newegg, they have two ports that it can plug into a blue vga port or a white dvi. you want to plug into the one on video card.
When you bought the computer and the sound on board, came with it, so did a disk that contained the sound software and driver for the motherboard. You need to reinstall both using that motherboard disk. If you did not receive the disk, then you need to contact them for it.
Your other ooption is to buy a PCI soundcard, like Soundblaster that wil come with everything you need.
