get a regular pci graphics card...maybe an old one or a friends...you can buy em for like 20$. the bios maybe auto set for pci and not pci-e. then if that works, change the display feed in bios.

EG,

Try testing each piece of hardware with your motherboard and cpu. Your vidoe card should be recognized by the bios. Unplug everything and test the motherboard/cpu and your vidoe card. If your vidoe card is recognized then continue to add one piece of hardware and testing it in this manor until all hardware is being recognized by the bios up into the point where you can install your OS and other drivers.

its not the video card. if you cant get to the bios it may be that you have another damaged component. I have a dual-RAM board. If you put the RAM into an incorrect slot, it doesnt boot at all, but everything physically starts up.. Oh, and if you went and put the USB in wrong, you may have blew a section of the board.
