I spent the whole day building my computer. I finished, and tried to turn my computer on. The fans turn on, but there is nothing on the screen. My CD drive would not eject.

My build is

AMD 630
3GB DDR2 667Mhz RAM (from old computer)
Gigabyte GA MA785GM-US2H
WD 1TB Blue
Cooler Master Elite 310
Cooler Master Elite Power 460

What did I do wrong? I'm not a expert at building computers. It is my first time. Here is a picture

Any help is appreciated.

Did you read the sticky?

Looks like you have an IDE optical (wtf? why?) and you kinda need to connect that to the mobo to work.

AS for why it doesn't turn on, you'll have to go through sticky.
