Also there was no Beep at all. Everything was stagnant. So is it the Ram or motherboard or cd drive (this one is probably not it but jw to make sure) THX

edit: did i use the wrong screws to connect my motherboard to my case? maybe

just tried no post or any beep. Is there anything besides the motherboard that can cause no beeping sound or anything to happen? I am about to just return the motherboard

if you have the both power cable connected to the board with the cpu fan in and memory stick on it should start or at least made a beepwhen you start her up ,dose thisboard have some debug light give the name and model of her
