Well I built it and it turned on and that's about it. I can't get into the bios. I was extremely careful and this is the 2nd time this has happened...god damn it. I don't know what part is faulty. Theres no signal from my video card and my buttons on my mobo and case are unresponsive except after I unplug and plug the system in again. The mobo has no onboard video so I can't see if its my card. It also might be my processor. Heres my system specs:

motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU- Earthwatts EA-650

Someone please help me before I try to sell everything and start from scratch.

Some stuff to try:

1> Make sure that all power connections are plugged in, including the 4-pin one next to the processor *** this is the most likely, when my brother didn't do this to his computer, it did exactly what you described***

Otherwise, if 1 didn't work
1> Find a different video card (a cheap one would work just fine)
2> Try each stick of RAM individually
3> If you have a second PSU, try that
4> If you have access to another known working stick of RAM try that
5> same as #4, except with board/CPU
6> Triple-check that all cables are on the right pins on the mobo and that everything is seated firmly
7> Remove heatsink and double check that no pins are bent/broken on CPU

I got it to work ahha, I found a thread that helped me. I kinda freaked out because this happened to me before and that power connector wasnt the issue last time. Hey good news...my X3 turned into an X4! I cant get my driver CD to work or I cant figure out how to install it though. Can I install windows then find the driver on the net?
