I moved my working PC into a new case,no hardware or software changed. Something got screwed up in the move process. My MSI Nvidia NX6800 card appears to power up with fan moving & wakes up the VGA monitor, but shows nothing on screen & no beeps from mobo & harddrive is quiet. I swapped out to an older VGA card & everything appears fine. I tried re-seating the card several times & reset the bios with no luck. I verified that this version of the card has no power connector. Is my card fried or can it be a problem on the mobo? It's PCIe/SLI(single), so I can't try it in my other boards.
I myself had a motherboard like this, it's a great worker! I also service and repair these boards and one of the most problem is when using single RAM, put it's into the correct slot! please check the manual for this one, when moving these boards you need to take out the processor heat sink, some time if you may leave it, the board may get a hair-line crack due to heat sink leverage on the board

Please shut down you're PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Remove the video card you have installed.

The Asus P4S800-MX motherboard has an onboard video card built into the motherboard. Before you can add a video card you must make a change in the bios. Go to Advanced menu.
Page 2-21 in you're manual. Change primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card]. Save & exit the bios. The PC will begin to restart. Press & hold the power button on you're PC until the PC shuts off. Unplug the power cord again, open the case & firmly & evenly insert you're AGP graphics card. Connect any extra power to the graphics card if required. Re-check all connections & cables before closing the case. Turn on the PC. Wait for windows to finish loading before installing you're video card software. That's it. You're card should now function. Good idea to update windows!
Turn your PC's power to off and disconnect its power cable.
Open the PC and move the graphic card to a new PCI slot connector.
Connect the power cable and turn your PC to on. Reinstall card's drivers (from the CD you get with the card).
Let us know with your resultes.
