You tried two different video cards and you still don't have any video. But everything else works fine. Have you tried the video cards in other slots? Take out all the other cards, like modem card, etc. If you have two memory chips, take one out. Now try it. If none of this works It maybe the monitor. Make sure it has power to it.

Was it configured to try to boot from 'A:' ?
Disconnect the hard-drive & CD/DVD drives.
Put a diskette into the drive, and see if it tries to find a boot-record on the diskette.
If it tries, then it has P.O.S.T.'d correctly.
> no beep codes
When it worked, did it beep _once_ when P.O.S.T. completed?
Taking out the RAM _should_ cause some beep codes, i.e., "no RAM".
Replace the monitor?
Replace a dead video-card?
Or, add-in a video-card, and connect a monitor to it, leaving the original monitor connected to the original video-card. One of the two displays should show the P.O.S.T.
just dump everything and buy a branded new PC....
u will be increasing ur BP....it;s not worth this much effort....
the kind of work u have done...it seems ur an expert so u urself work it out what's wrong...and where did u make a mistake...
i guess ur CPU and MB are not getting along....some issue with ur integration.....of all parts....
Have you already tried removing your memory card stick?If not, then remove the memory and then the pins of it using an eraser of a pencil and then put it back on..,reset again the bios and be sure to connect all the cords correctly of your computer and then power on. Hope this could help you.. Thanks..
What I recommend is you remove everything you could possibly remove from the laptop (HDD, mems, cd rom, wifi cards, etc) just to check if it will turn off even when it's not booting or posting. Try turning it on with just the charger and WITHOUT the battery and see if it stays on. If it doesn't, then most likely the mobo itself is the problem.
Remove and reinsert the dimms reseat the video card also put everything back and try agailn If this dont work reseat the cpu and repeat steps above
If the above fails to fix
If it will boot into safe mode and use the standard vga as you did before and restart and try to reinstall the drivers You are sure you installed the rilght drivers for your OS It may be that the card is not compatible wilth your mobo.Try checking compatability list for your OD
