Today I build a PC and as it was my first time I was a bit nervous however I got to a point where I thought it is finally finished so I plugged my monitor in using a HDMI cable, and once I powered it up bios didn't come up the only thing that happened was all the fans on all the components came on and a motherboard led and a PSU led. So the PSU is fine and so is the motherboard, so why is it doing this and how can I get bios to come up so I can install windows.

Extra Info:
There was no bios beep.
All the fans come on and stay on.
The motherboard led comes on and stays on.

I opened up the case and looked at the motherboard and wrote down all the names of the slots that aren't in use (don't have anything plugged into them.)

I'm interested to know what you find as I am experiencing something similar. Although the reason I don't have beeps is because I don't have a system speaker (bought one today hopefully it comes soon).

Pay close attention to #2 in that checklist. The symptoms you're desribing are exactly what would happen if you forget the 4/8 pin CPU power. It's usually located near the CPU socket and I/O ports.

Nope the CPU power is in.
