    Have you checked all the connections? Is the motherboard grounding on anything? Tried with just the bare minimum - i.e. one stick of RAM etc?

    Do you get any error codes or beeps from the motherboard?

    been trying it with just the bare minimum, haven't recived any beens or signals and im pretty sure the speaker is connected properly....

    only thing i need to check is weather it's grounding on anything :O

    I think I will take it out of the case and place it on some carboard for a tester....

    Any other suggestions :(

    and thanks :)

    Dont lie the motherboard on an antistatic bag. Most think this will give protection, but in fact, the outside of a anti-static bag is conductive, and using it as a mat to lie the board on when powered up can, and indeed probably will, short something out.

    The reason why you aren't getting any beeps is because you are running bare minimum. Get the PC speaker out of a case and put it on the board.

    I've got an idea... Check to see if the 12V voltage connector is actuall connected. I once had the same problem as you, and replaced everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. Then I had one last look before I started tearing my hair out, to find that I failed to connect the 12V voltage connector to the motherboard.

    I had the same thing a couple of weeks back when biulding my E6600, I hadn't connected the ATX_12V plug the the motherboard - thought it was only needed for the GCard, search of the net put me right :clap:
