    You are going to have to be more specific as we will try to find a solution for you. This could be anything.. from a failing processor to an improperly inserted cable... so it is really hard to pinpoint the issue from the information posted.

    It doesn't boot up.. to what extent? (Do the fans spin? Is there power, led lights, hard drive spin etc.)

    One suggestion is to double check everything... and make sure everything is properly mounted.

    HI rage,
    If the fans spin then there's power to the board, good start

    Next, what drives has he got and how are they set up, ie hdd, cd-rom etc, and are they set to master and slave in the right order.

    try unplugging all except the hdd,making sure that its set to master, on start up immediatly after the ram count enter the key ( normally delete ) to enter the bios, once in there go to the advanced cmos > make sure that the boot sequence is set to " boot from hdd " exit, saving if needs be.

    see how this goes and post back, with any questions \ answers.
