If your PC gives single normal beep while booting then try connecting your monitor to another working PC. If it doesn't display then check the VGA cable by replacing it with new one. If the beep is not normal then tell us the beep behaviour.
several things come to mind. If you are positive the6850 is good then my first guess would be your power supply. the specs for this card says it needs a500 watt or greater p.s. if the p.s. is good then check your Pci slot to verify it is a pcix 16, nd lastly this card also requires 1 gig system memory. try this and let me k now if it doesn't work
If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.
No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short. One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK. 2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue. One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry

Continious beep codes are caused by the memory (RAM). Try reseating your RAM just plug it out clean it then put it back in. Or try the other memory slots. Just transfer your memory to the other slot if you have an available slot on your motherboard. Or simply buy a new memory (RAM). Just make sure it is compatible to your motherboard. Beep codes means the computer is not reading the memory (RAM) properly. There is no post and no video in your computer because the RAM is not working properly.
The 2 extra wires will most probably be temperature sensors.
If your using the onboard video, then make sure you have memory in the first DIMM slot (it will say DIMM1 beside it)
If that dosn't solve the problem then try these:
Remove the memory and reseat it. Make sure to put it back in the correct way. There is a notch towards one end that will match the notch of the memory slot. Press it in until the 2 clips lock fully, then give it a gentle wiggle side to side while pushing down still.
Listen to the beeps your computer makes when starting up. A single short beep is what you want to hear. If you hear. If you hear something else then post back what it does. There are long and short beeps that could be involved.
Disconnect all the IDE cables from the back of the drives. You can leave the power cables connected. When they go back in they also have a notch and can only go in one way.
Try those for a start and post any progress you make. Also just double check the video cable is correctly attached at both ends to the computer and to the monitor.
