Why is it that nothing post on my monitor?

Question

When I turn the computer on, the HD and power LEDs function and the fans activate. Unfortunately, there are no system beeps and nothing posts to the monitor. This occured after I installed an additional NIC in the computer. I tried resetting the CMOS but that didn't help. I also took out the NIC, but that did not fix the problem. I was told to replace the motherboard by the company that sold me the computer because it was no longer under warranty. I did so, but am still having the same problem. I really have no idea what else to do or what else could be the problem.
