Re: installed first start up no video output on pny...
Try unplugging all other devices like HD's, CD's, DVD's etc.. and see if you get video. If not, then it could be a cpu problem, memory problem, or even a bad mother bd. Also, if there are jumpers on the board, make certain they are correct.

When a motherboard does not beep that isnt good news and its either the Motherboard or CPU.
Have you fot the FSB settings correct on the board?
Is your power Supply Good?
Does your graphics card need power and is it plugged in?
Unfortunately the only way to findout exactly is at fault is through a process of elimination.
Can you try a different power supply first?
Also try removing the CPU and re-seating it.
If not, then you need to try and get hold of another motherboard and see if everything works in that. If not then it could be the CPU.
Diagnosing CPU or MOTHERBOARD is always tricky without spares.
If you're using an LCD monitor it's probably the monitor that's at fault. Since you've had this happen with both the onboard video and two different expansion cards, the motherboard is pretty well eliminated as the cause. It sounds like you are describing the monitor backlight going out. Next time the trouble occurs, look closely at the display and see if you can still faintly make out the video. Switching to a different monitor or repairing your current one should fix the trouble
so..let me see..you have 2 mainboards,two video cards.one preocessor and rammsso you have quite some possibilities. fisrt of all I have to say that just clearing the bios is not a solution..would be better to update it,by downlaoding it from the manuufacturers site and after you made a bootable cd than under dos mode re write the bios.. however you cant see anything without a propper signal with new motherboard. take the new mother board.. so..chech the rams.if you have more ramm dimms let only one in the board but be sure is the one near the proccesor slot and check it to be well inserted. -put the video cards first the 8500 one,see what it happends.like an observation:if the hdd is damaged the computer runs showing you the dos mode/you are able to reach the bios processor damaged-computer can run/blue screen with some infos/it is note a rule that you can reach the bios ramms distroyed or put wrong..computer starts/dos mode/able to work in bios video card damaged -NO SIGNAL AT ALL moather card damaged-No signal at all. so think and pay attebtion to the details of the errors.
You can make different tipes if combinations and by elimination youll discover the faulty component. from now I can only presume is the new mother board good luck .its a booring work but is nothing you can do more bye bye
The chances are that you have an old motherboard which is not compatable with the new graphic card. Or you may be running windows 98 and are downloading the driver for xp or visa versa. The probable solution, will be to sell the new card on ebay and buy the best old card you can off ebay. Or just make do with the card you already had in your computer. If you are determined to have a better graphics card. A motherboard upgrade with better graphic card may be the best answer or buy a better spec pc second hand if you don't have much money. You'll probably waiste a lot of time trying to get the new card to work and it probably never will.
