This is the first system I have attempted to build, and I am at my wit's end.

The system will not POST and the debug LED panel flashes FF before stalling at 'd1'

Here is my build:
MSI 890FXA-GD70
Phenom ii x4 black edition at 3.4 ghz w/ stock cooler
Radeon 5850
seagate barracuda 7200rpm
DVD/CD optical drive
gskill 1600 DDR3 RAM, 8 gigs

-I have tried all 4 different sticks of RAM in each DIMM slot, even though the mobo manual says you should try booting with one stick in the DIMM_1 slot.
-I have insured the motherboard is properly secured and there is no contact with the standoffs in my case
-I have removed the graphics card in an attempt to get beyond the 'd1' error message, with no luck
-all fans and lights start up appropriately with no problems, including the cpu fan

I have not yet been able to reach the BIOS. Please help!

What does your mainboard manual say about those error code messages, they should it sounds liek you have a built in Post Chip Decoder? Also you can check on MSI's website. Can you be more specific? Another Guess would be offhand a bad cmos battery would keep you from Booting, but Check for cables maybe not installed correctly! Did you mix various contacts gold or tin with Ram? Did you buy RAM all the same speed and brand?
