Stop! Disconnect everything, pull the motherboard out and test it outside. Now install ram(one stick) cpu + heatsink, v-card(if the mobo has onboard video use it first), connect monitor, keyboard (make sure every component i mentioned is connected fine) ya now start the system. Do u see anything? Do u hear anything?

edit: oh u didn't bother to list the system specs.

1st of all, you didn't list your specs. It could be that your hardware isn't compatible.

2nd, you should NEVER install the hardware in the case without benchtesting it 1st. Gut the case & do it right.
