I just tried to get into POST with only the two motherboard cables, A single stick of ram in the DIMM1 Slot, The processor and the Processor Fan. It just doesn't work. It stays at "No Signal" being displayed on the Monitor. Yes the monitor does work, I've tried it with my laptop and it picks up automatically.

I don't know what to do, the only jumper i can find on the motherboard is the CMOS reset jumper Please Help.

Have you tried clearing your CMOS or making sure the processor was seated properly?

Have you considered that you got a bum motherboard?
Where are you located and who did you buy it from?

Well i reseated it and it is seated properly. Im located in an Asian country and it was bought from just a regular shop. What do you think? Is it a faulty Motherboard or Something with the PSU?

When you tried it in post #11, did you have the hard drive connected? It will post with no hard drive, but you had mentioned earlier that you couldn't hear the hard drive spin up.

Dealing with new hardware sometimes involves swapping out parts to get at the root of the problem. You could always try a PSU from another computer.

Are you using DDR2 1.8V ram?

That seems to be the correct course of action to me. What you did seems to narrow it down to the PSU or the motherboard.
