Ensure graphics card has its own power connector plugged in if appropriate.
Reset the CMOS.
Take all the memory out, power up with no memory, should beep at you.
Unplug everything from the board and use a screwdriver to short the power connector to power on the system.
Use new power supply with at least 400w.
If board doesn't have onboard graphics, remove graphics card. System should complain, otherwise it will default back to the onboard graphics.
Remove all PCI cards, in particular modems, dial-up or otherwise. These can cause conflicts.
Check the obvious - processor inserted the wrong way round? AMDs are keyed and use a little arrow, but its still possible to put it in the wrong way round.
