Make sure all is plugged in properly and completely, especially both motherboard power plugs and both hard drive plugs (power and signal. Check if the CMOS jumper is correctly in the off/neutral position. Then try entering BIOS set up by pressing delete key, if you get in to set up, you will be able to tell more from there. If not, and you have parts you can borrow, try a different power supply (you may be able to purchase another under the condition that you will either return the defective, or the good one).
