I just installed a new Foxconn bd (K7S741MG) and it seems to be trying to load but I have no video out put. Do you think something is fried? What can I do to start over with the installation and what are the correct procedures?

If you plug in a pci video card, sometimes the bios, not Windows disables the card on board. If the onboard video is not being disabled from bios, then you will be able to use either one or the other video cards, no need to disable it manually. If your system takes both cards and you want to disable one, then go to system properies/hardware/device manager and disable the unwanted video card from device list by ticking disable on device profile.
Can you press the F1 key or DELETE key and bring up the Setup menu? Can you see it?
If you can't see the above, it sounds like someone was not grounded to the computer case when they installed the new motherboard. Static electricy is the #1 killer to all electronics. If this is the case, you will have to buy an aftermarket video card and install it to see anything.
The VGA monitor will work with any video cards on the market.
If the motherboard said that it uses an AGP video card. That is the only one it will use. Make sure the card matches the motherboard or it will not work. All video cards are marked on the outside top of the box and your motherboard is maked by the AGP slot. Make sure you get the right speed format also. 8X will only work with a 8X.
I hope this helps and I will check back later to see how you made out.
Without sounding silly. Have you tried replacing your new memory with your old memory? Just to see if your Pc boots normally. This will narrow down the root cause. This board only will only handel this type of memory.
