New Computer, Four beeps no boot

Hey folks,

Got a brand new computer from Newegg today, and in my attempt to throw it together something went wrong. Turning it on results in everything powering up, and four short beeps. No display, no continued beeps, everything just whirrs normally.

I followed the steps in and even still there is no change. The only things I did not do are the processes involving the Power Supply because I do not have a multimeter or another power supply to test it, but I assume since everything hardware wise is powering on normally it shouldn't be the power supply.

Any ideas?

So my motherboard has a little diagonstic LED and it says 55, which means "Memory not seated." But it is, I've reseated it a dozen times and used different RAM to ensure it wasn't the memory. Think my board is broken?

Just called Tech Support and apparently the Bios on the motherboard is outdated and doesn't support the new line of processors. They're sending me a new Bios chip and that should solve my problems.
