    make sure you have the 4 pin pci power plug in it the white connector near your cpu. check that the mb not shorted out to the case that use used all the mb stand offs. if you think it a dead short on the mb try bread boarding.
  2. Turns out the problem was my graphics card was pci and my new mother board only boots from pci express 2.0 slots. I had never heard that before but it worked.
