Computer reboots after installing new Mobo/CPU/RAM

I bought an ASRock H61M-DGS MicroATX mobo, Intel Pentium G860, and Pareema 2x2GB (4GB) 1333 DDR3 RAM. I installed all of the parts, but my computer would start up for about 10 seconds, then shut off. No video output or anything. I took out a stick of RAM out of port B, but I got the same error. Then, I tried removing the RAM from port A, and installing it in port B. My computer booted, I reinstalled Windows 7 x64, updated drivers, and updated the BIOS. I tried using both sticks of RAM again, but the computer still wouldn't boot. I tried the RAM in another computer, and it booted just fine. I'm not sure if there motherboard has a bad RAM slot or if there's some other problem.

  1. edit: misread what you said.

    Does each stick work individually on port B?

    Yes. I used some RAM from another desktop I have, and that RAM doesn't work in slot A either.

    I'd RMA the board. It does happen and there isn't anything you can do about it unless you want to live with only one RAM slot :(
