1TB HDD
ATi 5670 (Temporarily)
600W PSU

i had the same problem when i built my first computer too.turns out i had grounding issues. have you used the stand offs when you put the mobo in the case?how long do you leave it before turning it off after it failed to boot?

Be sure to wait 30 seconds. Your monitor may just be (very) slow.
If it still doesn't show, restart the computer.
If it's the same as before, restart it again.
If still nothing, test the RAM with the MEM-OK button.

And if still nothing ordinary, try pluggin' it into another monitor.


If it still doesn't show any signs of proper activity then you have absolutely no choice but to brake your GPU, sue ATI(/AMD) because they make braking products, get a refund and buy a new graphics card.
If it STILL doesn't work, then I have absolutely no idea ... Buy Nvidia eventually.

check your motherboard connections to the power supply.. like said above wait for the screen.. and if all else fails take the board out and put electrical tape over the case risers so the motherboard is definatly not grounding out..

its either your ram is not getting the correct settings / not allowing boot up - RUN MEM OK, or your video card is toast. (first two things I would suspect) from there.. if both were tested ok could be mobo or lastly cpu.

Might be a silly question, butdoes your graphics card require power, and if it does are you powering it

I've tried most of the stuff, my motherboard is screwed in it's standoffs. I held down memOK for 30 seconds and it's still a solid red.

Check ur ram timings and voltage. Make sure they're at the correct timings and voltage. Check your video card to make sure it's properly seated. Not sure if it makes a difference but how is the memory installed. Should be skipping a slot for each stick if it's 3x2gb I assume.
