Alllrighty, so I've started out on building my gaming rig from scratch. The parts I used:

Mobo - ASUS NVidia nForce SPP 100
Thermaltake Tsunami VA3000BWA Black
Aluminum Modern Dream Tower Chassis Computer Case
Blah blah blah I could go on but those two main things are causing me the most trouble as of right now.

Basically, when I press the power button, nothing happens, and I clearly have the Power SW cable connected to the right thing on the panel (99.9% sure) Yet, the green light for the mobo is on, clearly stating that the board is getting power, yet when I do press the button for power, nothing [bleep]ing happens. Can anyone out there help me out with this?

Are your fans turning on and your hard disks spinning or nothing at all?

Nope, nada, nothing, zilch. The motherboard states that it is powered, yet the power button doesn't even light up and absolutely nothing happens when I press the dang button.

Switch the power plug around.
You most likely have the negative wire in the positive pin and positive wire in the negative pin. This would be my first guess as it's very easy to mix up, I have done it myself.
