I would unplug everything but the power supply leads and use onboard video if your board has it until the board posts. Then start plugging everything back in one at a time until your problem re-apears. You also may just need to adjust the position of the case connector plug. I have to move it around some until the case led's start working (if it's one piece). You may have to leave part of it hanging out off the pins (the portion that has no wires going into it).

Agree with the above information however I would go a few steps further. I would remove EVERYTHING from the case and box post the MB first. Remove the CPU cooler and reseat the processor into the ZIF, and ensure you put every so slight pressure of the HS Cap when closing the ZIF closure. Install 1 piece of memory and then add the other later.

If you can get a good post outside of the case, double check that there are no standoffs in the case that do not have a matching screw hole in the MB.

Post back and let us know what is happening.
