Question about Intel D915GAV Motherboard
Since you don't report a beep code or the sound of the fan and hard drive, the power supply seems the most likely issue. First I'd check if your power supply is capable of handling the load and handling the load properly. A number of multiple rail PSU do not evenly distribute the power and the video card and the CPU/motherboard are on the same rail. Use a voltmeter or a power supply tester to check the various cable outputs. (I know this video card uses less power than some but you still need to have the power supply handle it. What is the mean power the unit can supply and how much power do your components need?)
Did you tell the BIOS to use PCI/E card and put a cover on the motherboard video port?
Did you get the card fully seated (if it isn't properly seated, it can short the board)? In a few cases, I've seen a motherboard with problems with the slots (causing a short or non-functional board) out of the factory which means that the only solution is to RMA the board if it is under warranty.
I hope this helps.
