OK, I'm out of ideas at the moment then. The only other thing you could double check, is the CPU is installed OK. But like I said, if you remove the heatsink at all, you should apply fresh thermal paste.

I will see if I can get Rockster2U or Doby to have a look over your problem, maybe they will have some other ideas about it.

OK, I've had a reply from Rockster2U.

He has suggested one other thing to try (he has built a number of systems recently using this range of motherboards) which is :

Press and hold the INSERT key while powering the system on. If that gets it started, press DEL to go into the bios & reset everything.

Apart from that, he is under the opinion that the board is fried, and I agree with him. If it's still under warranty, I suggest you RMA it asap.

Sorry I can't give you any other suggestions but I'm out of ideas. I think RMA'ing is your best bet right now.
