this may sound stupid but make sure the power supply is turned on, that one actually stumped me on my first build :/  you won't even get the PSU fans to spin until you turn it on

There is an excellent Sticky Thread in this forum that will probably solve your problems. It will help you if your computer doesn't post correctly. I'd recommend starting there. But... if you don't, try this.

1. Make sure the power supply to your CPU is connected properly on the MOBO.

2. Make sure your monitor is connected to your video card output

3. Make sure your ram is installed correctly.

I don't think so. But if you have your pc speakers connected properly, you can "breadboard" your pc and it will tell you if there is a problem with your ram.

If you didn't hear a beep, recommend reading the sticky on "breadboarding". Make sure your case's onboard speaker L.E.D wires are connected properly. That should help. I know it's a pain, but should solve problem.
