Drivers?

And did you move the cable to connect the monitor to the connector on the graphics card?

Drivers have nothing to do with a no signal condition. Drivers are not loaded until windows loads. You would still get the motherboard splash screen without any driver.

This is most likely the problem.

What bugs me is the keyboard and mouse are not initializing. Even if the monitor was left on the on-board video, you would think that would have no effect on the keyboard and mouse and windows would load with no display. It's as if the boot up is failing prior to the installation of any the drivers, generic or otherwise.
I would suggest you pull the card, go back to onboard, go intro the bios to set the first graphics to PCI-E. Then shut down, re-seat the card and move the cable to the card and try booting again. Also make sure that you connect the proper power cable(s) to the graphics card if it requires power. The cable(s) should be labeled PCI-E.
