    Did you build it yourself? Take it apart and do it over again, make sure your cpu is reseated and is clean from the thermal paste with the irophyl alcohol 70% or higher. then reapply the thermal paste. Reseat the memory sticks and do same to all things. Make sure your USB is grounded properly. Make sure your PSU having the 20 pin power connected properly, and make sure you plugged the ATX12V+ (4pins) in the motherboard.

    If it didnt work, post here again. Thanks and welcome to techspot.
