Ok so I have a computer that gives me no indication of life except that when mains power is given to it the red led in the PSU fan flashes on then off in a second.nothing else moves in the case.

The Specs

Mobo - GA-990XA-UD3 (rev. 1.1)
CPU - Athlon II X4 640
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb 1600mhz
PSU - OCZ OCZ750FTY-UN Fatal1ty Series High-Performance 750W PSU
Wifi Card - TP Link TL-WN881ND 300Mbps Wireless N PCI Express Adapter
GPU - Asus 550ti
Case - Zalman Z9U3 Midi Tower Case (ATX, M-ATX, Acryl Tuning, Full Size VGA Compatibility)

& drives if needed

SSD - 1 kingston 240gb ssdnow
HDD - 1 Western Digital Caviar Green 500gb
Optical Drive - 2 Samsung DVD-RW and Sony DVD-RW

I've done the usual checks cpu power, mobo power, ram in right slots, all connectors in firmly.
