I recently purchased a Sempron 3100+ processer with a ECS 755-A2 MB. I installed Kingston KVR400/512R PC 3200 CL3 memory, IBM 80gb Hdd, common floppy drive, a Emprex CD/DVD drive and a ATI-9200SE 128MB AGP video card by Kaser Corp. I'm using a ENVISION led flat panel monitor.
My problem begins when I turn the system on, the monitor is blank. Nothing comes up. Even without video drivers shouldn't I see the POST activity, or be able get to the BIOS screens? I suspect the video card may not be correct or the monitor isn't compatable or both or neither. I don't know.
I don't have a lot of money to spend, I'm just trying to put a system together for house hold use and for my grandsons to play some games, Harry Potter, Monsters Inc., etc.
That video card and monitor should work fine together, so there should be no conflict at all.
One thing of concern is your power supply. Could you please list what power supply you are using? The board you have has a 4-pin 12V connector (should be in the upper right corner of the board). Your power supply must have this connector, otherwise your system may be left in the dark.

The PC case is a mid-tower ATX by JUSTPC[USA]INC and the power supply is model JPC 425-12V (430W max). There is a 4 pin connector and it is plugged in to the MB. The fan on the video card does run, if that means anything. Still no picture.
