This happened to me when I finished transferring all my parts to a new case just recently. Turns out I forgot to plug in a 4-pin power connector to the motherboard.

On my motherboard the connector is just left of the processor, on my friends it's just above it. You should have a 20 (or 24) pin connector and a 4-pin connector going to your motherboard.

also make sure the clear cmos jumper is covering pins 1&2, check your manual about this. if its on pins 2&3 the computer will do that. Also try another jumper cap, I have had them already were they were bad and not making contact, drove me nuts till I found it.

Is the motherboard currently outside the case with only cpu, fan&heatsink,psu, 1 stick of ram,video card,case speaker, mouse,keyboard,monitor attached. If not it should be and please do so.

What video card do you have?

Also pay attention to what Steltox said this is very important
