make sure your 4-8 pin cpu power connector is plugged in to the motherboard. you could try taking out all the ram and testing one at a time to make sure you dont have a bad ram stick. reset the bios by pulling the cmos battery out and unplugging it for 60 seconds. worst case scenario, your cpu is fried.
