I have a Compaq Presario CQ5320Y model with a 750w power supply upgraded and installed correctly.
I tried 2 different graphics cards, the Nvidia Geforce GT 610 and 9600 GT. Both of the cards were seated firmly in place and my video cable was connected ONLY to the card, not to the integrated card. My BIOS is set to load the PCI-e slot first before anything else, and yet even after all of this the cards recieved no power.
The fans didn't start, I recieved no video, and both of the cards are brand new and should be working. I havn't tried them in another computer yet but I plan to. My computer is about 5-6 years old but never gave me any hardware problems, I have no clue what the problem is here can anyone help me out here? This is stressful.

Try one card at a time and post back your results.
Why do you think that your PC can even run two video cards?
Your post sound vaguely familiar to one posted a while back.

Maybe I was unclear about this. I tried ONE card, at a time
(If you click the specs on my motherboard you'll see that I only have 1 PCI-E slot, therefore it's impossible to try both those cards at the same time)

What gives you the idea that I know the answer? You're horrible help and you're making no sense. If I knew what was wrong I wouldn't be on this forum. I simply need to know what the most likely problem is and what I can do from this point on, forget it i'll find better help.
