Upgraded Mobo, Video Card doesn't work now

  1. Just got a new Asus P5PE-VM with a Core 2 Duo, and now only the onboard VGA works. When I put in my video card (EVGA GeForce 6800GT), the computer turns on still, but no matter which vga port I use (onboard or card) I get no display.

    I am running Vista, but I don't think that would affect this. Bios is not the most recent, but the only update adds new CPU support.

    Any ideas? My old mobo died, and I'm really hoping to keep this card...I love it! (not to mention can't spend the money for a new one).

    Thanks!

    So the onboard works when the card is not in? What are your specs? PSU wattage? Start troubleshooting!

    Just figured it out...I wish I had done a little more research. The card is a 3.3v agp, and the board only supports 3.3v. This sucks.

    How did you get the card to fit on the motherboard??
