Start up problems with new system, please HELP!

  1. So I finally decided to build that new system with the following parts:

    CPU:Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe E6300
    Motherboard:Intel P965LTCK
    Graphics Card: Gigabyte 7600GT Silent Pipe II
    RAM: 2 x 1GB Corsair pc5300
    Case: Antec Sonata II
    PSU: Antec Smartpower 450Watt
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar 250GB Sata
    Dvd Burner: LG 16x Super Multi
    Dvd reader/cd writer: Lg CD/DVD Rom Drive
    Floppy: Panasonic Floppy Drive
    Operating System: Windows XP Professional 32Bit
    Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster 940N
    Keyboard/mouse: Standard Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse

    I put everything in the case, following exactly the instructions provided. So after checking and double checking everything, I turn it on and the following happens:

    Light on motherboard goes on,
    power and status led go on for about half a second.
    Cpu and case case fans spin up and then spin down after half a second.
    PSU fan DOES NOT spin at all.
    I have tried several times and it just continues to happen. So then I unplugged hard drive, floppy and optical drives but still no luck...

    I am really out of ideas.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated.
