I finally got my new build all put together but when i turned it on for the first time it wouldn't boot. Later i read that this little blue LED next to the CPU that was constantly on was a bad thing. On the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution they have these little LED's called diagnosis lights next to all the major components when one goes off your supposed to fix the problem and then the LED will go off. the problem is i don't know what to fix. I took the heatsink off took, the CPU out and everything seemed fine. So any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Also when i press the MEM-OK button the whole system shuts down. is this bad?

It would be nice if you listed all components used to build your system.

By any chance you didn't forget to connect the EATX 12V that provides power to the CPU? Did you make sure that the PSU, motherboard, CPU, RAM and video card worked before asembling the system?

If you bought the retail version, a diagnosis card should be included. If so, what error does it indicate?

Don't feel bad as that mistake is rather common.
