Dell Inspiron 8500 Dead after Video Card Change

\015 One day when I started my computer, I got the old screen fading to white and the computer not starting. I have had this issue before, and needed a new video card. This time, when I got a new card, and installed it, my computer would not even start at all. When I power up my computer, the 3 lights go on and flash for a bit, then go off after about 15-20 seconds. Any thoughts on what else I can do? At least before the computer and fan would start up, but now I cannot even get this. Thanks\015
