    Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3G (AM2)
    Corsair XMS2 DDR2 (2 1024mb)
    Maxtor Hard Drive SATA

    No the graphics card is not plugged in. I have the monitor connected to the motherboard.

    Does your computer beep when you turn it on. If it does post what type of beep it is. If it doesn't beep try resetting the bios. If it still doesn't work try unplugging everything inside your comp apart from motherboard,cpu,memory,psu, then see if it works.
