ASRock 970 Extreme 3
AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma 3.0GHz
SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850
Patriot G Series ‘Sector 5’ Edition 8GB (2 x 4GB)
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W
Western Digital Caviar 400Gb
Rosewill Challenger
Lightscribe drive

This is the first computer I built and i don't really know what I'm doing. I have connected everything and it turns on. All the fans spin,including the gpu and cpu fans. The cd drive won't open. I get no beeps from the speaker, it might be bad. I get no display out by hdmi or dvi, I'm using the dvi to vga adapter. When I plug the keyboard in, none of the leds light up. None of the usb ports seem to work when i plug in an optical mouse

I'm assuming the motherboard is bad but I'm not sure

Best solution

sounds like a power supply problem. If the power supply works, the CD drawer should open.
Maybe you connected the power supply wrong. Post some pictures.

When the drive isn't connected to the motherboard it open and closes but when I connect it, the light on the just drive flashes.
