Is the power on/off lead on the right way
Make sure the motherboard is not shorting out[ie you havnt left any metal spacers in where they shouldnt be.

Also make sure the RAM is fully clicked in place

Tried the fuse in the plug? If thats ok, does the little LED on the board come on?

  Tombojo 18:29 06 Feb 2003

the ram is in, the fuse is ok and theere arent any little pieces of metal shorting the mainboard anywhere.

If the psu connecter is properly inserted into the motherboard,can only suggest you try the psu in another pc[or can you vouch that the psu is ok]
Does this board have led lights on it somewhere

Graphics card?psu size?cdrom/cdrw/dvd/hard drives.
