Your monitor shows power? Have you checked the monitor on another system to see if it's working? Any beeps from the BIOS system check? You have power to the video card, right?(usually makes a large screeching sound if no power is supplied to it :) )

Probably shorting it out being too tight. Always remember to use those rubber gaskets in between the mounting screw and the board :)
