Thank-you for the responses, my friends.
I would like to address a few things in this thread.
1. My thanks for your help. While none of the instructions that you've provided me with actually helped, I appreciate the effort. I followed all of your instructions to a tee, but that did not help. The issue was something quite unrelated to most of what you provided me with.
2. When I said "mono", I actually intended to type "mobo" (short for motherboard). My phone was being a little weird today and, considering I was at work, I could not reply to address any misunderstandings.
3. I fixed the issue on my own. What was the culprit? I am assuming it had something to do with the RAM. I have hypothesized this simply because when I took everything apart, and put it back together AGAIN, I decided to power the motherboard on without RAM. After I did this, everything whirred to life, and the motherboard speakers made three long simultaneous beeps. I turned it off, installed all of my RAM, and it started... without issue. I now have the following up-and-running...
I also tried with one stick of RAM, but that did nothing.
- ASRock Z77 Extreme4 1155 Motherboard
- Intel Core i5 3570K Quad-Core Processor @ 3.4GHz
(I am going to leave the overclocking go for quite some time, as I do not have time to deal with any malfunctions due to exams).
- Intel Maple SSD 120Gb
- Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB HDD 64MB cache, 7200 RPM
- AMD Radeon 6850 in Crossfire
- 12GB of 1600MHz Corsair XMS3 RAM
4. Again, thank-you. You all took time out of your day to help me try and solve the issue, and I am very appreciative of that. I was in a big panic yesterday, spending ~eight hours in an attempt to find and mediate the issue. Two more hours today proved to be worth it.
