Can't get my GeForce GT 430 to work

  1. I recently purchased a EVGA 01G-P3-1335-KR GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130656) and I don't understand why it isn't working. I'm concerned it's defective but it's probably just as likely I'm overlooking something. I'm trying to put it in an older PC - an eMachines T3304. Here are the specs for the motherboard (http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FIC/105554/105554sp25.shtml). I have also upgraded to 1.5 GB of RAM and to a CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply. When I turn on the PC the fan on the video card doesn't even spin... Is there something I'm missing here?

    does the fan spin when connected to motherboard? and you put the power cable onto the graphics card?
