I think it may be the motherboard spacers...

Is it to late if I try and install the spacers now???

I tried turning it on like 15 times

It's a very distinct possibilty if you didn't screw in the spacers before installing the motherboard. If you have forgotten to screw them in you can always try removeing your all your components, screwing in the spacers, and then reinstall all the components before trying again.

Did you attach the spacers? It isn't daft if you forgot, it's a common mistake with first time builds.

I won't lie, there's a chance that you may very well have killed your board. However I feel that you should nevertheless take the time to assemble your system properly as there is quite a good chance that there hasn't been any damage caused.

the spacers didn't come with your motherboard; they come with the case. unless you got an open box item, i guarantee that your case came with a little baggie that has all the hardware in it. you should have at least 9 brass spacers somewhere around there.

they don't come pre-installed because different motherboards have different layouts for the screws. good luck.
