Heres my problem. I just bought a brand new ASUS P5ND2 SLI motherboard, it's nice. Ok, so when I put all the parts together in the machine, and hook up the power, the thing happens that everyone hates to see the moment they've shut the case. Nothing.

The fans, and the power supply run, the processor and its fan spin, however I don't see an image on the screen. So I take the whole thing out, place the mobo on a reversed checker board and power up the mobo alone with nothing on it. Beep codes. Cool.

Power up the mobo with a processor on it. Beep codes. Awesome.

Power up the mobo with processor and RAM inside of it. No beep codes. No matter what I do, I can't get any, I tried bringing in RAM from my old computer into my new one to no avail.

The RAM is the gskill DDR400 PC3200 512 sticks.

I'm at my wits end with this computer, and it's one step closer to being kicked every time I unsuccessfully power it up, any help would be greatly appreciated.
