Monitor doesn't get signal from vid card,

my specs:

Motherboard: Intel D850GB,
CPU: P4 1.75Ghz
Video Card: ATI Radeon 9600 128MB,
Monitor: Gateway EV700
Memory: RIMM RAMBUS 512MB,
Hard Drive: 2x80GB HD
450W PSU

Now this setup has worked before, but I guess multiple instances of taking it apart and putting it back together has taken it's toll.

When I power up my system, the fans all come on and the hard drive starts making noise, so I think it's booting up. However my monitor is not getting any signal. The monitor will start playing the test image when it gets attached to the vid card, but it won't get any actual video data.

Now the vid card and monitor work fine when used on the other motherboard, so I think the issue might be with this mobo, even though it worked fine before.

And I don't think the problem is with me attaching the vid card faultily because when i tried with my Geforce 3, the fan on that will turn on when I boot up the system.

Well I hope I explained my problem thoroughly enough for you to help me.
