If the system fails to turn on at all I would be looking at the Video Card being incompatible with the M'Board. Here it all depends on the CPU involved and the Chip Set of the M'Board. If there is a Intel CPU & Intel Chip Set M'Board I would be looking at the Power Supply being the issue.

However if you have an AMD CPU or a Intel CPU without a Intel Chip Set M'Board so your M'Board is a nVidia Chip Set I would be looking at the Video Card being the problem. Quite a few non Intel Chip Set M'Board have issues with Video Cards.
