help

my dad just got a evga 8800gts oc 640mb and it wont work on his computer . All small human error were checked and checked again but still nothing. i then try it on my computer. first unistalling the all vga drivers and then installing the new vga. upon boot everything was normal went to desktop and had the chance to install the proper drivers but that was all the test i needed to see it the card itself worked. when i did the same thing in the other computer there is nothing pass some computer beeps and there is not screen. can't ever get into bios. so i just updated the motherboard bios as well as my own (we have the same mobo) and i'm gonna give it another try. anyone know whats the problem with this?

i fixed the problem. it seems that the problem lies in the slot itself and or the part of the card that goes into the slot. its a really heavy card as some of you know and it just wasn't making good enough contact. but with that job done i now have sli.
