I am building my first PC. I do have some prior knowledge, but I am by no means an expert. I am having an issue with getting it to power up after hooking everything up. I'm at school now, so I don't have all the information on hand, but I'll list as much as I can. Most of the parts of from my brother's old PC after he upgraded and all were working before he took it apart.

-MOBO: Asus P7h55-m Pro
-Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo
-Power Supply: Bestec ATX 300 12E
-Graphics Card: Nvidia GForce (I can't remember off the top of my head which series)
-1 180gb HDD
-1 120gb SSD
-2 sticks of Kingston 4gb DDR3
-I'm not sure on the case brand

The green led on the board comes on, but the computer itself will not turn on.

Any help would be appreciated.

To be honest I don't think that is the cpu I have. I know it is an Intel, but not sure which one. I can't remember for sure. I will check when I get home and update here. I know the processor is compatible though.
