Make sure onboard graphics are NOT disabled. Check monitor, monitor connections. If it still don't work then it's probably bad mobo.

It's an older board designed for OEM's(HP,Compaq,DELL), it if is disabled and its not working then enable it. If it's enabled and not working disable it. That mobo cannot support all GPU's. Mostly the onboard needs to be enabled in order for it to work with add on GPU.

Also reseting the CMOS might do the trick.
