Assembling new PC WITH I7 PROCESSOR AND ddr 3 MEMORY
Put it all together and wont start, all the lights turn on and the video card and processor fans work but thats all it does.
The lights stay ON and nothing else!!!

Any ideas please?

Try with one stick of memory at a time. Maybe you got a bad stick.

It was the memory, we were putting it in the blue slots, changes to the white slots and is fine now.
Thanks

How did you fix your problem?
I still have problems, wont let me install Windows Vista, I installed XP and it will reboot itself all the time.
So Im still having problems and cannot make the computer run

I was also putting memory in the wrong slot like you did. Other than that , it is happily running at 3.8.

Make sure cpu is not overheating. test your ram. format the hd. clear the cmos. install os at stock speed. leave everything at stock speed. let me know the progress.

check your psu. if possible, try another psu. how hot is your cpu?

Pull your MOBO and verify that your fan/heatsink assembly is completely seated on all four pins, and that you have a proper spread of your heatsink compound; if any pin is partially seated, the CPU temp will soar so quickly, the thermal cutout will appear to kill it instantaneously... Single most common cause of 'put it together & won't work'!
